WHAT IS WEEJAM
(click to learn more)
WeeJam is FUN! We dance, sing, play, and play musical games. Play with new friends. Sing your favourite tunes and even create your own music. Laugh. A lot. Out loud. WeeJam is fun and strives to bring humour, silliness, and playfulness to every class. Why? If music isn't fun, why make it?. WeeJam ENRICHES and fosters. Social Growth: music is a vehicle of self-expression and developing self-expression. We interact socially in class, and as the youngest children become able, begin waiting for a favourite song, sharing an instrument, helping to clean-up, and coordinating with other children to create musicEmotional Growth: children learn to recognize, and express feelings, and then emulate them through music. Physical Growth: much of WeeJam's curriculum is built around developing both fine- and gross-motor skills through music. Musical growth: WeeJam is a partner in each child's developmental journey, featuring appropriate material for every age . WeeJam is EDUCATIONAL.

WHAT PARENTS SAY
Lauren, Mother of two
Heather's passion and enthusiasm for music make her classes captivating. My children loved the range of instruments and silly songs that she shared with us at Wee Jam, especially when they got to try out some movement with them. Heather's energy shines through in her online classes to make a fun experience for those small and tall.
Parents of Catherine, age 3
"We have been fortunate to experience WeeJam both in-person, indoors, and online, for almost two years. We discovered Heather through CPPG playgroup. We realized early on that our daughter was musically inclined. She naturally picks up rhythms, and loves music, dance and instruments. Heather's sessions foster that. Our daughter can be shy, but you would not know that, seeing her during WeeJam sessions. Both in-person and online, she interacts, stays engaged and is getting better at listening and looking for instructions, thanks to WeeJam. Having lost playgroups and socials during the pandemic, I am truly grateful to Heather for moving things online.
