Baby Artsplay - April 8 - May 6 (Registration Closed/Program Full)

Wolf Trap Institute’s Baby Artsplay!™ Family-Based Residency Program provides children ages three months to three years old and their parents/caregivers with a holistic early childhood music, drama and movement program aimed at supporting infants and toddlers’ intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development. Baby Artsplay!™ is an integrated performing arts program for infants and toddlers and their parents and caregivers. 

Baby Artsplay!™ classes involve parents and their children in weekly music, drama, and movement classes focusing on increasing sensory awareness, spatial relations, motor development and cognitive and language skills. A unique aspect of Baby Artsplay!™ classes is that they utilize the child’s parent or principal caregiver as the primary teacher. Parents or caregivers attend all sessions with the children, participate in all experiences, and are encouraged to reinforce the experiences at home. Parent and child experience concepts of music, drama and dance through developmentally appropriate activities incorporating creative movement, singing, music making with simple rhythm instruments and storytelling. Through Baby Artsplay!™, parents learn how to facilitate developmentally appropriate performing arts experiences for and with their children in a child-friendly learning environment.
