The Effect of Repetition On Young Children’s Growth In Zumbini

Ever notice how your little one loves doing some over and over again? Even if drives you crazy, they will ask for the same book to read, the same song to be played, or same game to be played again and again! When young children use repetition, they are learning and refining new skills their

Exploring Scarves In Zumbini

Scarves are an essential part of a Zumbini class every week not just for our games of peek-a-boo, they are one of the tools we use to teach many different concepts while having a ton of fun!  Scarves are lightweight, easy to move through the air, provide a great hiding spot, and can always make

Exploring Eggs In Zumbini

Shaking eggs has always been a favorite instrument when working with young children, both in a traditional classroom format and in Zumbini.

Music Is A Language For Everyone In Zumbini

Maybe you’ve seen one of my favorite quotes, “Music is the universal language.” Every week in Zumbini I am reminded how true this statement is.
