Suzuki Early Childhood Education

Join us once a week for a one-hour class where you will sing, dance, play instruments and enjoy a magical musical experience with your child! Our family music classes, held weekly, are open to babies & toddlers ages 0 to 4 years and their parents and/or caregivers.

Suzuki Early Childhood Education (SECE) is the realization of potential through active and reactive participation in the environment, from birth. SECE is based on the premise that the potential of every child is unlimited. Every country’s most important resource is its children. Suzuki Early Childhood Educators work in partnership with parents to create a stimulating learning environment. 

“When the environment is rich and unpressured, a child not only learns a skill but also gains a sense of purpose in life, an understanding of discipline, and an appreciation of beauty.”  ~Shinichi Suzuki
