Music in Motion is a safe, fun and welcoming environment for children (ages 2-6) and their parents (or grandparents or caregivers) to have fun dancing and moving to music, learning, and hearing stories. Music in Motion is designed to be a fun and engaging place where children can grow and develop their language skills, fine motor skills, and social skills.
Join us on Tuesday mornings from 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM (doors open at 9 and Music in Motion starts at 9:30 AM) at Ivanrest Church in the West Wing. Our schedule is September 17 – December 10. If Grandville Public Schools has a delay or no school, Music in Motion will not be held.
*Music in Motion will not be held on November 5 (due to voting in the building) or November 27 (due to Thanksgiving).
There is no cost to participate in Music in Motion but if you are planning to join us, please fill out our Music in Motion Registration Form so you can be on our email list where you will receive updates about Music in Motion including theme days and any cancellations.
Here is what to expect at a normal Music in Motion:
- Welcome Time (9:00-9:30 AM): You will be greeted at the West Wing doors by Ivanrest Church Staff, can get your name tag and find your spot in the circle.
- Music Time (9:30-10:15 AM): Join the large group circle as we use fun and upbeat music and rhymes during which the children, with encouragement of their parent/caregiver, will use motions, simple instruments, and other fun materials (such as scarves and leaves) to engage in the large group time. We will also read book(s) with the large group.
We believe there is great value in parents and caregivers participating with their children in the Music Time as it promotes a strong bond/connection with their child(ren) and helps to make the Music time more fun for everyone.
- Snack and Play Time (10:15-11:00 AM): You and your child can enjoy a healthy snack with friends and also enjoy a time of free play with books, coloring, activities, and balls.
