CALLING ALL LIZARDS! : Mixed-Age Program
This creative program is ideal for the family childcare environment, showcasing the best of what Leaping Lizards has to offer. For details, see descriptions below.

GECKOS : Infant - 2 years
The littlest lizards enjoy social time with each other and discover the world around them through music! Every new activity gives wee ones the opportunity to develop cognitive skills and self-awareness- or try out infant friendly musical instruments! It's a great time for caregivers to relax and enjoy quality time with the youngest members of their world.
New! Ukulele and Me courses for parents and tots!

CHAMELEONS : 3-5 years
Watch toddlers grow into preschoolers and then big kids as they explore the world of music and great literature. Expand developmental growth, vocabulary and global awareness through our multicultural thematic lessons. Chameleons explore early music theory through singing & rhythmic instruments. This program is especially great for English Language Learners.

YOU Can Play Ukulele!

the music

How do you select and write music?

Music in the Leaping Lizards program goes through a simple but strict selection process:
-Is it memorable?
-Is it fun?
-Is it culturally authentic?
-Will it teach or enhance a developmental concept?

These questions help create a rich, inviting learning environment.
