Science & Music Monday
For 4 year olds 11:45 - 2:30 PM; LCYC offers a Music/Science Monday Extended Day program for 4 year olds. This class focuses on music for 12 weeks. The staff helps the children explore the uses of their voice, i.e. talking, whispering, shouting, and singing. The children learn to match pitch, participate in activities with rhythm instruments, and investigate the science of sound so that they understand how sound is produced. Each session contains singing activities, rhythmic experiences, listening exercises, and movement. Natural tie-in’s to science are included as part of many sessions. The class focuses on Science from January through June. The children learn the scientific method, and work on projects and experiments during class time.
