Enrichment Programs at OPCC

Oakville Parent-Child Centre Enrichment classes, offer your child the opportunity to enhance development with access to our certified and specialized instructors. Together we will introduce your child to music, art, reading, and other forms of creative learning to give them a head start.

These programs also help you and your child, or the child you care for, build on your attachment, explore different types of movement or develop language and literacy skills – all while having a fun time out!

In Person Music Programs with Mrs. Tanya

Sun-sational Music: 3 months to 6 years 

Are you looking to engage in a positive bonding experience with your child? Research has found “that participants in interactive music classes with their parents smile more, communicate better and show earlier and more sophisticated brain responses to music.” McMaster University.

Summer is a 'sun-sational' time to bridge strong connections with your child through the joy of music.  Music inspires emotion creating a clear passage to long-term memory.  Music stimulates and awakens all learning, providing a tranquil state of mind, leading to a favourable mood.  Come out to start your day with a high-spirited, enriching class and experience with the benefits of music!  Join us along with Tanya, Music Director, as she facilitates this program.

Sizzling Music: 3 months to 6 years

Be sure not to fizzle when the summer starts to sizzle!  Instead, join Tanya, Music Director, and nurture your child's love of music.  Your child's musical interests will peak as we utilize various handheld instruments, dance, sing and move to the rhythms of the season!  Each week will be based around a different topic e.g. Animals, Transportation and Under the Sea!
