Did you know that music has been proven to nurture ALL areas of childhood development?
It builds skills for school readiness, including intellectual and social-emotional intelligences, fine and gross motor skills, language development, mathematical proficiency, and overall literacy skills.
But here's the real truth. All buzz words aside, music is FUN. It promotes self-esteem, strengthens team building, sparks creativity, and ignites joy.
Music education is the whole package, which is why it should be an essential part of your school's curriculum. And Tots with Tempo is here to give that to you, with options for any budget. Our program serves infants through age 8.
"I cannot offer enough accolades to Katie Kraft and Tots with Tempo for helping to ensure that little ones develop an early and growing appreciation of music and have such fun doing it."
We offer two programming options to fit your school or daycare's music education needs and budget.
Tots with Tempo has been active in the Northern Virginia, Washington D.C. area since June of 2009. We have been blessed to have been awarded the following accolades by our wonderful families:
Today's youth are growing up in an era of YouTube, TikTok, Facebook, and Instagram. As educators, we are competing against an endless supply of accessible entertainment, and have a responsibility to find ways to engage with this ever-evolving generation. Today's music curricula often rely on outdated materials that don't resonate. Our approach is modern and connects with today's young minds.
If you already have a school music teacher, our materials can serve as a full curriculum, or as a supplemental repertoire to your teacher's collection. We can provide all your music education needs, or be used as needed for some extra color and FUN!
Need concert materials? We have songs for holidays, PreK/Kinder graduation, and other special events or programs.
Whether your school's overarching curricular approach is Montessori, Head Start, Reggio Emilia, Waldorf, Bank Street, Highscope, Parent Co-op, or something else, Tots with Tempo is the music program for you and will complement your school's learning style perfectly.
Tots with Tempo harnesses a child's unique ability to imagine and create and merges this gift with an interactive music and movement experience. A hand drum becomes a steering wheel, sand blocks become a lumberjack's saw, a parachute becomes a sizzling pan to pop popcorn. If a child can imagine it, we can do it.
Bringing programs to your school is expensive. Money should never be an obstacle to providing a high quality education for your students. We offer several options to make Tots with Tempo a real possibility for your students. Whether you're a small preschool or large daycare center, we've got an option for you.
If your school doesn't already have a music teacher, Tots with Tempo will send a trained music specialist to your school to provide weekly music classes to your students.
Our independent play self-study program provides your existing staff access to, and a license to use, our award-winning resources, activities, songs and lessons.
