Family Engagement Through Music

Presenter:  Lili Levinowitz, Ph.D, Lauren Guilmartin, M.A
Air Date:  Jan 21, 2014

Research emphasizes the developmental benefits and importance of parental engagement in children's learning both at home and in school. Although early learning programs understand the importance of family involvement, it is often difficult to find enjoyable, quality, yet realistic ways to engage parents in school and at home. Participants will be introduced to the ways in which enjoyable and accessible adult-child music activities and materials can connect children, teachers, and parents and provide educators with easy and fun ways to engage parents in their child's learning, enhance the home learning environment, promote family engagement in school, and support a strong child-teacher-family connection.
