Kindermusik & Music Therapy Connection
Kerri Hurley

Kindermusik will provide one-on-one training and coaching in utilizing music in daily lesson plans by modeling during 7 weekly sessions for classes of at-risk pre-kindergarten children and their teachers. Each teacher and child will receive Kindermusik curriculum materials including a parent/child magazine/book with story and CD allowing parents and children to build upon classroom experiences. Preschool teachers/assistants will learn methods through observing all class presentations so that concepts and musical activities can be integrated into the teacher’s daily lesson plans. The music professional/licensed Kindermusik Instructor will explore ideas and help develop activities with the preschool teacher utilizing music through numbers, shapes, colors, and letters; explore ways to share music in the child's world in the classroom and at home; and may provide follow-up consultation with preschool teachers to explore ways of enhancing daily experiences with the children. Music Therapy will be provided through one-on-one training and mentoring to improve teacher practice by a contracted Music Therapist for special needs infants, toddlers, and preschoolers at Dorothy Spainhour and special needs preschoolers in Early Intervention classes. Each infant and toddler teacher and child will receive Kindermusik curriculum materials including parent/child book and CD allowing teachers, parents and children to build upon classroom experiences.  If funding is available, children ages 3 and 4 at Dorothy Spainhour may receive a Kindermusik home kit.

Partnership for Children of Cumberalnd County

The Nurturing Parenting Programs are family-based programs that can be offered in a group setting, in a home-visiting setting, or as a combination of both group meetings and home visitation.[1] Components of the program include 1) developing empathy, facilitating parent-child bonding and attachment; 2) teaching parents appropriate expectations of children’s growth, particularly ways to promote children’s feelings of self-worth, trust, and security; 3) employing discipline that promotes the dignity of children and adults; 4) empowering adults and children to nurture themselves, others, and their environment; 5) promoting positive self-worth; and 6) helping all family members develop a meaningful level of selfawareness and acceptance. Parent education programs that are designed to prevent the development of poor parenting behaviors are short-term, approximately five to 18 sessions in length. Parenting intervention programs are designed to “intervene” to prevent escalation in the early stages of maltreatment. These are generally from 12 to 20 sessions. Parenting treatment programs are designed to “treat” abusive and neglectful parent-child or parent-teen dysfunctional interactions. These are generally 15 to 25 sessions.
