Tuesday, June 6 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Dr. Betsy Diamant-Cohen, creator of the Mother Goose on the Loose program, will present a workshop on the importance of play for children.
This lively workshop for teachers and librarians is both playful and filled with tips on providing playful experiences for the children in our communities. This free workshop will provide professional development by:
- Building literacy, social and emotional skills through play.
- Exploring the science behind play and its importance in our programs and activities.
- Practicing multiple ways to include play in story times and circle times.
A light supper will be provided for all participants. Registration is required as space is limited. Please check our website or call us at 781-596-8867, ext. 307 for more information. Registration begins on May 15.
This workshop is funded through an LSTA Grant from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners, the Jewish Community Center of the North Shore, and the Friends of the Swampscott Library.
