Suzuki Early Childhood Education
Suzuki Early Childhood Education (SECE) is a program in which a mixed age group of children ages 0-4 meet weekly, building on concepts and skills laid out in the SECE repertoire while interacting with one another, their parents, and the teachers.
This program uses high quality, authentic musical instruments, songs, creative movement, familiar nursery rhymes, and activities to ensure maximum learning and growth. Suzuki early childhood educators work in partnership with parents to create a nurturing and stimulating learning environment.
Active music classes in infancy enhance musical, communicative and social development.
SECE is based on 7 key Suzuki method concepts:
-Every Child Can Learn
-Ability Develops Early
-Environment Nurtures Growth
-Children Learn from One Another
-Success Breeds Success
-Parental Involvement is Critical
-Encouragement is Essential
The structure of the curriculum makes it easy for newcomers to join at any time.

What Is The Difference? - - - between the Suzuki Early Childhood Education classes and other franchised music programs for young children?
1. Suzuki Early Childhood programs are not franchised.
2. The Suzuki ECE classes recognize the importance of parent education and devote much time developing a partnership with parents to help them create a natural enriched learning environment at home.
3. Suzuki teachers are trained to foster ability while most traditional teachers use the "teach and move on" approach, following a curriculum that is calendar driven.
4. Suzuki ECE teachers understand the potential for assisting parents in creating a rich musical environment before a baby is born and are convinced that the spirit of the child is formed as a result of his or her early environment.
5. The Suzuki baby/toddler music class class uses a constant curriculum over a three year period to ensure thorough mastery.
