Later in February, QIC Carissa Knoles visited the Infant Toddler Learning Communities in each county during their monthly meeting to spread a little musical cheer! Each provider participated in 6 new music and movment acitivites to use with the littles in their program as well as instruments to play along with! Everyone learned how to play a song on the ukulele too, which is a great way to bring real instruments into the classroom for all ages!
