Baby ArtsPlay!TM Launch
Arts for Learning (A4L) is proud to launch Baby ArtsPlay! TM This new program for the youngest among us and their caregivers is built upon the renowned Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts Baby ArtsPlay!TM program. Through a partnership with the Miami Children’s Initiative and funding from The Miami Foundation, Baby ArtsPlay!TM commenced last fall in Liberty City to serve infants and toddlers from three months to three years old along with their caregivers. The Baby ArtsPlay!TM program complements A4L’s early childhood program, which currently serves children three to five years of age and their teachers. To prepare for the program’s start, A4L sponsored a week-long professional development intensive for local South Florida Wolf Trap artists to learn the Baby ArtsPlay!TM structure and strategies. A4L sends a big thank you to A Mother’s Care preschool and the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. YMCA preschool in Liberty City for hosting the demonstration portions of the professional development. Baby ArtsPlay!TM nurtures curiosity and joy from the start: through rhythm, pattern, movement, colors, shapes, sounds, language, smiles and love.
