My family relocated to Newton and finding the Musical Mornings program was a great way to build more consistency for our little girls, ages 3.5 and 1.5. It was a great place for them to sing, dance, and twirl around every week. Whenever we have driven by ANMS during the week, my older daughter will ask about Mr. Ken and both girls will sing!
