Learn about the power of voice, song and rhythm. 

New and experienced Early Childhood Educators and Family Resource Program Facilitators will learn about the power of voice, song and rhythm and its uses in early learning programs in this interactive webinar.

Participants will learn simple vocal exercises in preparation for using songs, as well as, new songs to add to their repertoire and ways to integrate songs into early years programs. Participants will also have an opportunity to ask questions and discuss challenges and ideas around the use of song in early learning programs.

There will be follow-up information provided after the webinar on how to make use of and teach the value of rhythm to parents for use with their infants and young children, as well as the role music and song play in attachment and early literacy and participants. In addition, there will be links to the facilitators' Youtube webpage where the songs learned in the webinar can be accessed and reviewed at any time.
