Teachers, caregivers and librarians are invited to a workshop conducted by Betsy Zahniser, creator of "The Music Box: Songs, Rhymes and Games for Young Children."

It will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 24 at Richmond Memorial Library, located at 19 Ross St. in the City of Batavia. Phone 343-9550.

Songs, rhymes and movement are vital to early childhood development, especially in regard to a preschooler’s literacy skills. Music fosters language, imaginary play and shared human experiences, therefore it is important to expose children to music at a very early age.

Successfully using music when dealing with groups, depends upon having a varied, age-appropriate repertoire, and a skillful, flexible plan.

“Down-Up-Down,” led by Zahniser, provides participants with these skills. This free, interactive workshop includes information on planning musical activities for young children, songs that are fun and engaging, and it foster the confidence to try these activities. Participants learn how they can sprinkle songs and rhymes into their daily routine more effectively, even if they are not musically predisposed.

Registration is required.
