An inclusive music-based developmental playgroup for children of all abilities ages 3-5 years old and their caregivers. Everyone is welcome! You and Me Music is structured as a communication rich environment within the motivating context of music. Using visual supports, modeling, and aided language input, the communication needs of all children are supported throughout the session.
This group is led by two specialists in early childhood and special education, Karin Nanos (speech and language pathologist), and Joanna Beatty (school psychologist). This is a great opportunity to:learn music and play routines to support your child’s language, social and cognitive development. At the same time, you can connect with your child, connect with other families, and form relationships with professionals who are experts in early intervention.
Each group will have a teacher-led music time, a child-led free-play time, and opportunities for caregivers to engage in discussion of topics related to their children's development. Our Inclusion Position Statement: Diversity and inclusion increase richness of ideas, creative power, sense of community and respect for others. Our playgroup provides a structure of support and routines that allows for all children to participate in their own way and ensures that all children have access to opportunities for communication.
