My Lending library is now available for those registered/enrolled. Lending Library will have play sets, CD's, books. Most are from KIndermusik's but were discounted (that are still safe of course) mostly because of limited use/interest like activity kits, play set, CD's, activity books, etc.
The Kindermusik materials that are included for use at home are high quality. Their safety standards are above those federally mandated. Their books & music & at home materials are available on line or in the physical. Kindermusik understands our world (especially tech) is in constant change so they work to provide options for the modern family. Kindermusik also recognizes the need and developmental need for the physical for children's learning so they offer well designed and made physical books, instruments, even some playsets. Books for babies are board books. Instruments are focused for both safety and development needs. And Kindermusik regularly updates their curricula, music, books, and instruments to not only for quality but also based on current science & society need.
Materials available depend on the theme and curricula changes throughout the year. Kindermusik has more than 6 years of developmentally designed materials for children from birth to over 7 year olds. Exactly what materials go home also depends on the class/Level but you will receive a minimum of ... streaming access while registered/enrolled, 1 physical book & instrument per term to keep, professional resources (fliers or digital access). Also available during registered/enrolled - access to In-person classes, Lending Library for (Fall & Winter/spring, Summer) 4 month terms with 12 weeks of in person classes.
