Baby Music Classes
Numerous studies have shown that music supports brain development in babies and children. Singing aids with speech development and singing to your baby strengthens parent-child relationships. Dancing and instrument play help with motor skills and aural training builds listening and concentration skills. As a result, there are a variety of baby music classes that have developed to tap into these benefits. At SF Newborn Care, we understand that it can be time-consuming or difficult to sort through all the options.
