  • How to look for creative ways to keep families engaged in their child’s ongoing development in the program.
  • How to integrate music across the curriculum to address Standards and Enhance Character Development.

The Arm Your Child With Music program offers a wide range of music styles. The Songs  promote school readiness skills, multicultural awareness and how to recognize signs of child and family abuse.  YouTube videos of songs
