The Language of Movement in Early Childhood
Movement is a vital part of children’s communication and development of social emotional skills; however, it is not always a central focus of early childhood education. This workshop will highlight the ways in which movement and nonverbal communication develop in infancy and early childhood and how we can focus on movement development to support our children in their social-emotional growth. Through discussion and movement activities we will explore theoretical and practical applications of movement in our classrooms.
This workshop will be taught in a way that is accessible for those with varying levels of ability. We aim to create an accessible movement space that allows for the participation of every student. Stars Credits are also available for this workshop.
