Early Literacy and Learning

Early literacy - rhythm & rhyme

“I truly believe that families are important for our society. If our kids are growing in a good healthy environment, our society will also be healthy and happy,” parent participant.

Your child will enjoy the lively combination of movement, songs and rhymes and you will learn many fun ways to engage your child and promote early learning and literacy. Family Rhythm, Rhyme + Movement is an interactive program facilitated by experienced early-childhood educators.  It’s a wonderful Saturday morning activity and a great way to connect with other families in the community.
