Fun with Books and Music
The relationship between the parent and child is critical to the child’s development, with particular focus on the formation of the cognitive pre-literacy skills necessary for learning. This relationship encompasses the motivation of the parents for their child’s development and their feelings for the well-being of their child. These components provide the foundation for the Fun with Books and Music program, which emphasizes the joy of parent’s interaction with their children in achieving cognitive goals.
