National Music in Our Schools Month
ChildCare Education Institute is proud to promote a one-hour online childcare training course in recognition of National Music in Our Schools Month. CHD100: Music in Early Childhood promotes an understanding of the importance of music in the early childhood years and the ways in which it can enhance children’s lives. Children exposed to music at a young age are more likely to communicate with others and recognize the aesthetics in their own culture. Furthermore, music activities in the classroom can improve attention span and memory, while also expanding vocabulary. Participants will be able to define the role of music in a child’s development, identify the impact of music on children’s moods and behaviors, and design appropriate musical activities.
