Old Town School will be closed on Monday, May 27 in observance of Memorial Day.


Old Town School of Folk Music’s celebrated early childhood music program welcomes young children and their families to a magical, musical world! Children and their parents or caregivers sing, dance, learn finger plays and story songs, and explore rhythm instruments together in a social and imaginative classroom. Since 1985 Wiggleworms® has been a popular rite of passage in Chicago — one that inspires new learning at the perfect time in a child’s life. ¡También en español!
