Music and Movement: A Parent and Me Music Series

Lanterman presents Music and Movement, which brings together families in sharing songs, instrument play, rhythm chants and movement activities in a relaxed, playful, non-performance-oriented setting. Music is learned through developmentally appropriate activities that support and respect the unique learning styles of very young children from 2 to 5 years of age. Infants, toddlers and preschoolers participate at their own levels in family-style classes of mixed ages.

Playgroups for Children Birth to 5

Quality play time with parents can lead to improvements in skills such as communication, engagement, sensory awareness, cognitive ability and creativity. Each session of the parent-child playgroups will run for six weeks and will provide caregivers with play strategies and tips for engaging children with special needs to make playtime more fun and meaningful as well as exposure to a variety of types of play and ideas for low-budget activities that can be done at home. Parents and children can practice their play skills in a supportive setting. Sessions are conducted in English and Spanish concurrently for various age ranges between birth and 5 years of age and at various days and times to accommodate the needs of the community.

Sign, Say and Play: A Baby Signs Program

Lanterman's Koch-Young Resource Center presents Sign, Say and Play: A Baby Signs Program. Gives babies a way to “talk” with their parent - before they can talk. For parents and children birth to 5 years old to attend together, families will learn useful signs for mealtime, bedtime, bathtime and expressing feelings. In addition, parents will learn simple ways to support their baby’s intellectual and social-emotional development. The first session in a four-session series starts on September 29, 2020.
