Music not only provides a powerful emotional experience for children, it boosts their brain power, as well. Dr. Marie Graham will discuss the important role music plays in your young child’s intellectual and kinesthetic development.  She’ll also provide applicable tips and ways music can help your young child process information, develop coordination, and build brain power!

A series of programs offered once each month, Know as They Grow is designed for parents of children ages birth to six years of age.  Each month, FCPL welcomes early childhood experts to discuss topics that are of interest to parents. Know as They Grow programs take place on FCPL's GoToMeeting platform.  Registration is requested, and an email with login information will be sent prior to the program.
