Early Childhood Online Course Stage 1&2

Event Date:  29/09/2020-02/10/2020

Research consistently links music and movement activities to supporting learning and development in early childhood education. We know that music can activate the brain for learning; trigger positive emotion; enhance physical development, social skills; build self-esteem and confidence; aid wellbeing and self-regulation and should be an important part of every high quality early childhood program.

This four-day course includes the full range of delightful rhymes, games, songs, folk dances, creative movement, musical stories, world music, percussion instrument activities, drumming, recorders, ukuleles and creative play for 3-8 years.
