What is Zumbini?
Zumbini is an early childhood development program focused on movement and music for children ages 0 to 5 years.
Class is fun, energetic, and full of contemporary music with world beats. It is child-appropriate, grown-up friendly, and of course, full of the “Zumba” flavor. Children learn to dance, sing, and move through the class using their bodies, rhythmic instruments, and scarves, to enhance the rhythm and feel of the music.
All of the Zumbini music is original, refreshing, and sure to get our children wiggling and giggling!
Music has been shown to be one of the most effective ways to acquire a second language naturally. Children tend to be attracted to different sounds, rhythms, and musical instruments. By playing these instruments and following rhythms, children develop their minds, language, and body together.
Through sing-alongs, repetition, and musical storytelling, children are prompted by the teacher to speak about the stories being told through songs. Children learn the traditional, classic, and heartfelt songs that have been passed down from generation to generation throughout Latino America and Spain.
Arts and Crafts
Art allows children to express themselves in a creative way exploring new textures, colors, and artistic techniques. EDPC experience a wide range of expressive and sensory media such as sand, water, clay, tempra paints, watercolors, collage, and more.
Creative/Imaginative Play Time
An atmosphere of work permeates the room when children are busy at free play. Play is the work of the child. They are learning to develop a rich imagination, which will serve their reading comprehension as they take words on the page and transform them into narrative memory. They are also learning to compromise with their peers, communicate their desires, carry tasks to completion, and problem-solve with others. These are some of the last years for them to really hone these essential skills, which will deepen and guide their academic lives throughout grade school.
