Description: 

Join Inner City-Inner Child, the education program of Dumbarton Concerts, to discover new ways you can encourage love, peace and harmony in your early childhood classroom. Singing, dancing, creating and collaborating encourage the social-emotional development necessary for effective learning throughout our lives. In this workshop, early childhood educators will learn ways to use movement, music and rhythm to teach social-emotional skills. Multicultural books will provide the springboard for arts-infused activities that promote communication, perspective taking, empathy and understanding. Participants will use their newly acquired knowledge to create activities they can immediately implement in their classrooms.

No singing or dancing expertise is necessary. Come with an open mind, an open heart and a desire to have fun!

Lunch will be provided during both sessions. Participants will receive books to take back to their classrooms.

This is a two-part series. Receive four professional learning units for attending both parts one and two.
