Music in our curriculum
We start our days with Music Time, which fosters children’s listening skills and musical abilities, while also cultivating their social confidence and language skills. Music Time explores singing, movement, and group participation skills.
Our Afternoon Mainstream Readiness Program (AMRP) or Bridge Program incorporates music to further prepare children who are four and older to succeed in the louder, more complex environments they will face when they graduate.
Children’s Music and Cochlear Implants
Check out our YouTube channel designed to empower parents and professionals who work with children with hearing loss. Each short and simple lesson includes a new teaching tip and a song twist for a familiar tune. Grow your child’s speech, language, and listening skills while making music a way of life in your home or school! We encourage families to begin with Week 1 (video below) and to watch a new lesson each week as a part of their child’s listening journey.
