Music and Movement for Infants and Toddlers Part I
The time from birth to 2-years-old is a crucial period to establish foundations that will shape children for the rest of their lives. In this two-part professional development series, Dr. Jessica Phillips Silver joins Inner City-Inner Child (ICIC) in an innovative, unique, research-based program that weaves the arts, brain science and human connection to produce positive developmental outcomes for infants and toddlers. In this interactive workshop, participants will learn how sound, movement and rhythm nurture infants’ optimal brain development and provide the basis for lifelong learning by building a foundation for bonding, cooperation and empathy.
PART I: Learn about the importance of and the brain science behind integrating sound, rhythm and movement into your infant classrooms. Practice music and movement-based strategies you can try in your classroom the next day.
