Apple Tree Arts presents an Early Childhood Education Seminar

Posted by switham on

The Grafton Public Library is pleased to offer an Early Childhood Education seminar on the benefits of music and movement on Tuesday, April 12th at 6:30 p.m. at the Congregational Church, 30 Grafton Common. Led by Jan Barlow of Apple Tree Arts, attendees of this seminar will participate in developmentally appropriate music activities that help children develop an array of skills including spatial awareness, body part identification, crossing the mid line, listening and learning how to follow directions. These activities also support the development of language, pre-reading skills, pre-math skills, cultural literacy and expression. Attendees will receive songs and exercise activities that help children develop these skills. Best of all, children will experience joy while singing songs and moving their bodies when parents and caregivers learn how to incorporate music and movement into the children’s daily activities.
This seminar is free to the public and is ideal for parents and caregivers of children birth through age 5. Please register for this seminar by calling the Library at 508-839-4649 or sign-up through our online registration.
