School’s back in session for big bro and big sis and your tiny tots/preschoolers are yearning to do some learning of their own. Corral those curious creatures, make your way to these enriching classes and watch their world expand. Flip through our slideshow to find the best brain candy from feeding miniature cows to singing in español.


Classes at Songbirds are mixed ages to allow siblings to jive together and to promote interaction with new friends outside your kiddo's immediate age bracket. The sessions are up to 12 weeks long and divided into these three classes: Music Together, Canta y Baila Conmigo and Singalong StoryTime. With the exception of Singalong StoryTime which is 30 minutes long, the other two classes are 45 minutes each. In this timeframe your movers will sing and hop, be introduced to language immersion and bring the pages of singalong storybooks to life. Your little egg shakers and drum players will especially love these sessions, since their free spirits will not be reigned in for a mandatory circle time if they've already found their own unshakeable beat. So buckle up your mover and shaker and head to a Songbirds location in Point Loma, Santee or Lemon Grove for a research-based music program that's approved by both parents and their little rock stars.
