This spring, Parents as Teachers hosted a “Music Together” group connection with 24 families and 89 participants. Following dinner, families joined a certified Musikgarten instructor for an evening of singing, dancing and music play. Music and movement is an important component in the PAT curriculum because of its positive impact on language development, math skills and social emotional learning. Monthly 90-minute group connections such as these allow parents and children the opportunity to bond with one another and connect with other families in their community, all while learning through play!
