The Power of Music for Health and Well-Being

Most humans innately understand the nourishing qualities of music. We turn to it when we need to be uplifted, calmed, energized, inspired, or simply reminded of a larger perspective -- one that helps us make sense of our small, complex lives. This workshop will explore the many ways in which music can support and uphold us in our work as child care providers, even in the thick of a busy workday. We will discuss how to bend the power of music toward organizing and integrating the energy of small children, as well as our own energy. Research suggests that shared music-making organizes us all, synchronizing neural connections, and fostering a sense of unity and shared purpose. Adult-child music and movement interactions can lead to increased coordination and connection, activating positive social interactions as early as infancy.

The FCCERS-R: Themes in Quality Care and Education for Children from Infancy through School Age in a Provider’s Home.

How does the Family Child Care Environmental Rating Scale-Revised (FCCERS-R) consider quality in a program designed to meet the needs of children of various ages and abilities? How does it take into account the practical constraints of real life in a family childcare setting? This session unpacks the FCCERS-R: what themes it prioritizes, why, and how providers can design their own plans for quality improvement. Learning Objectives: 1,) Participants will use FCCERS-R indicators to assess several program scenarios. 2) Participants will identify five wise FCCERS-R choices: materials or activities that simultaneously address more than one FCCERS-R indicator. 3) Considering feasibility and fit with their own professional philosophy, participants will write two program quality improvement goals for their own programs.

Vermont's Task Force continues to explore: to what extent might Vermont's early childhood workforce choose to align with the NAEYC's Unifying Framework.
