MSMVan™ Safety Plan

MSMVan™ has developed its own Covid-19 safety plan, approved by WorkSafe BC, which it will implement during the September 2020 school term. Teachers have been informed and are ready to welcome back the students, and we are looking forward to seeing you all very soon! The plan may be downloaded here.

New Children’s Class at MSMVan™

MSMVan™ is excited to introduce the one-of-a-kind program Kinderflute™, which will be taught by our amazing teacher Mikyla Jensen, the only certified Kinderflute™ teacher in Vancouver. The class opens the exciting opportunity for children ages 5 – 7 to develop their musical skills using the flute.

The Kinderflute™ teaching techniques are based on research in neurogenesis, in which movement together with music is utilized to positively impact the child’s learning. The motto of Kinderfute™ is “Stimulating exercise and learning through a loving and caring environment, to generate new and creative experiences.” Among skills taught, will be note reading, proper breathing techniques, and rhythm.

The class is offered Saturdays from 1:00 – 1:30 pm from September 26th to October 10th. Parents are encouraged to register their children today, as space is limited. Register with Stephen at the school by emailing administration@msmvan.com. As always, Covid-19 safety measures are in place at MSMVan™.

You may download a Kinderflute™ poster here.
