playmove&singDuring the critical first years of life, very young children need action-based learning such as movement, rhythm and music, to nourish and organize the developing brain. These are essential parts of each child’s growth and education to develop early literacy. All library staff and volunteers who provide programming for children who are pre-walkers, toddlers or pre-school age are invited to a developmentally-based active and interactive workshop:
