Our Early Childhood music program provides developmentally appropriate music for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. The music program uses a mix of traditional and contemporary songs from around the world in order to bring out the innate musical nature of young children. bergenPAC brought together musical volunteers including a Broadway vocalist, side musicians from NJ based bands including Bon Jovi and Southside Johnny who helped to create the unique music CD that each registered family receives.

The classes run for 45 minutes and are designed to introduce musically driven activities such as chants, fingerplays, and small and large movements using a variety of age-appropriate musical instruments. Our classes allow children and their parents/caregivers to explore, learn and discover the wonders and benefits of music!
