DJ Jam Cats– The Jam Cats music program has been developed in accordance with both the New Jersey Preschool & Kindergarten Teaching and Learning Standards, and the National Association for Music Educators (NAfME). Our curriculum is designed to teach children music fundamentals, instrument discovery, dance, movement, and to deepen children’s knowledge of diversity and multiculturalism through exploring music and movement of other cultural groups.

The greatest difference between Teambuilding and Group Activity is that Teambuilding is intentionally designed to promote/develop inter-personal skills and unify its participants in a way that delivers meaningful, positive results. In Group Activities, on the other hand, participants are simply grouped together to participate in a “fun” activity or group project, etc. Like in Teambuilding, often with Group Activities the development of inter-personal skills and group unity are the goals. We group the children up, give them a task, cross our fingers and hope for the best! Anyone that has participated in one of these loosely structured “if you group them, they will unite” experiences, knows that often something entirely different happens. On the other hand, the Team Makers’ Teambuilding Advantage delivers carefully structured experiences, which ensure engaging activities and meaningful reflections come together to provide positive results. While it is possible to get positive results from Group Activities, the development of these critical life-skills is too important to leave it to chance!
