Music Kindergarten

Music from the start of life.

For children under school age, Barratt Due offers age-restricted groups from infants (“music from the start of life”) to five year olds. The Music Kindergarten has, from the very beginning, been a part of the Institute and has always been regarded as an important and interesting part of our pedagogic music education programs.

The Music Kindergarten is localized at Majorstuen in Oslo, Lyder Sagens gt. 2. 

Welcome to an exciting meeting with music!

The Education

In the music kindergarten, we take the child’s own personal assumptions into account and adjust it according to their level. The children learn through different activities, as we believe that learning by doing is the best way. Natural subjects are therefore singing and song activities, music and movement, listening and experience, improvisation and creativity, and games.

The Structure

  • The education is delivered as weekly group sessions, about 30 times per year. A complete list of dates is handed out at the start of the year. For the children ages 0-3 years, the sessions are 45 minutes. For 4 and 5 year olds, the sessions are 60 minutes.
  • The groups are divided according to age: infants, and individual groups for those aged between 1 and 5. After the age of 1, all children born the same year are in the same group.
  • For infants and 1-3 year olds, an adult needs to accompany the child to the session.
  • The education takes place over the course of a year, and the pedagogic plan assumes that you complete the year. The kindergarten follows Oslo School’s calendar regarding vacation and holidays, with the education starting around the last week of August.

The term fee (NOK 4347,- for 0-3 year olds and NOK 4770,- for 4-5 year olds, two terms a year, due to change) is paid at the start of each term.

If one accepts a spot in the music kindergarten, one commits economically for a full term. The child will automatically be accepted to the spring term unless Baratt Due receives a written letter of withdrawal. Withdrawal must be made before the 1st of December.

Reimbursement will not be made if a child is absent, however if the session is cancelled more than twice in a term, then a reimbursement will be made.
