Music Make the World Go Round

Woodlawn Preschool teaching staff participated in music training with the Community Music School. The training was made possible by a grant from the Jacquelyn H Miller Endowment Fund of the Michigan Association for the Education Of Young Children. Teachers participated in the training with trainer, Teri Noaeill from the Community Music School of Battle Creek.  The goal was to support teachers in adding more music as art and enjoyment in the early childhood classrooms.

The teachers enjoyed the training and wish they could have even more. The teachers were given a copy of the CD that the instructor used so they can continue with what they have learned.  Children moved to music using parachutes, puppets and rhythm instruments. The teachers said it was fun for the children and a wonderful learning experience for them.

Research shows that music enhances skills that children use in other areas of learning. Exposing children to music during these early years helps them learn sounds and meaning of words.  Music helps strengthen memory skills, supports creativity, concentration and cooperation.

New policy on closing

February 1st our Executive Committee of our Governing Board determined that Woodlawn Preschool will no longer automatically follow Lakeview School District when it closes. Closings will be determined by the Executive Director of Woodlawn Preschool. Thank you for your cooperation and patience as we work to best serve our families and our program staff.
