Sonlight Enriching Care with Musical Flair

May 17, 2010

Sonlight Child Development Center in Mequon is excited to announce that Ms. Linda Ehlers has begun teaching music once a month to the children of Sonlight Child Development Center. Ms. Ehlers has a BS in Music (Voice) from Bradley University in Peoria, IL, is a licensed Kindermusik Educator, and has been teaching music and movement to infants through 7 year olds for eight years. The music being taught at Sonlight is not a Kindermusik class per se, but it is one of the resources used to create the class for young Sonlight students. Ms. Ehlers states, “Musical activities help the child develop in so many ways. The children learn listening skills, inhibitory control (stop and go activities), sharing, cleaning up, ensemble development (learning to play and make music with others), and, one of the most important things in life: steady beat development. We all need to develop a steady beat inside ourselves in order to learn to read, use scissors, bounce a ball, walk, run, and more.”

 

The professional childcare and preschool education at Sonlight Child

Development Center is offered in a nurturing environment influenced by

Christian values. Sonlight CDC is open year round and provides

individualized preschool curriculum for 2K, 3K and 4K as well as child care

for children from 6 weeks through 5 years old between 7:00 am to 6:00 pm,

five days a week. Before and after school child care is also available for

kindergarten students. Busy parents greatly appreciate Sonlight's flexible

scheduling. Program options include a culturally diverse curriculum,

emphasis on artistic self-expression, and nature exploration in an outdoor

nature area. Anyone interested in obtaining more information about Sonlight

Child Development Center may visit their website, www.sonlightcdc.org call
