September Event Calendar for Terre Haute and the Wabash Valley
The 2019 event calendar for Terre Haute and the Wabash Valley would not be possible without the support of Kindermusik at KinderCenter. If we want to see the Terre Haute area attract more families and offer more family fun, we need to support kid-friendly businesses like Kindermusik!
Mark your calendar! Fall classes start the week of Labor Day!
There are a variety of times and days offered for each class. KinderCenter is unique in that they offer classes for infants and toddlers. Most local educational opportunities start at a later age! Of course older children (preschoolers up to early elementary) are invited to learn how to their voices and instruments to make beautiful music in their own classes, too!
You can find the class schedule and prices on the registration page of the KinderCenter website.
