The Blue Hill Public Library is pleased to announce the return of a special weekly music and movement program for infants and toddlers on Wednesdays during the first half hour of the Library’s “Playgroup” starting March 19th at 10:30 AM. The sessions will be led by early childhood music educator Debora Reinke. Regular playgroup on these dates will start at 11:00.
Caregivers and children will be encouraged to listen, chant and physically respond to age-appropriate songs that promote language skills and stimulate brain development. These sessions will be geared toward both infants being held and toddlers who can follow along with the movement and singing. Along with the music, Deborah will use silk scarves, musical instruments and other items to engage participants. The program will be weekly through April 30th, with the exception of April 2nd.
To enhance what is presented during these sessions, the library has kits of music cds, musical instruments and songbooks for parents to check out. Families will be able to bring home what they learn from Deborah’s program and continue to provide a rich musical environment for their children at home.
The music sessions are made possible by Friends of the Library. For more information call youth services librarian Pat at 374-5515.
