Lil’Kidstreet A creative community for our youngest members: 0-4 years old

Lil’ Kidstreet inspires your child’s natural delight for song, rhythm, color and texture. We combine visual art and music to encourage developmentally appropriate learning through original songs, musical instruments, rhythm-based activities, paint, clay and collage. These classes are the first step in the foundation of exploration, creativity and enthusiasm for art and music. Each class is 45 minutes and includes both music and art. A caregiver participates with the child in these classes. In order to provide the best quality time with your toddler, we ask that you refrain from bringing other children to class.
