This conference will focus on how rhythm, rhyme and repetition promoted in music and movement activities can boost children’s communication, language and early literacy skills.
This is a must for Early Years practitioners working with children aged 12 months to 4 years, in Early Years provision.
Keynote Speaker Helen Battelley will share how we can boost children’s communication, language and early literacy skills through music and movement, focusing on the role of the practitioner. Helen will relight your fire, reignite your spark and self-belief in your practice.
