Stay for some or all of the fun including family-friendly Valentine's activities and resource fair in the morning and education series for parents and professionals in the afternoon!
C.I.T.Y. of Support is thrilled to be partnering with the Northwest Special Recreation Association (NWSRA) in hosting this exciting event! Our theme is "Music and Movement," and registration is FREE for families with only a nominal charge for professionals attending the education series (IL Early Intervention continuing education credits pending!).
During the morning hours, parents will guide their children through the engaging Valentine's Day-themed obstacle course while interacting with community businesses and neighborhood resources in the large gym. They will also participate in a variety of music and movement activities, led by music therapists and yoga/dance/movement instructors in the large motor rooms nearby.
A boxed lunch will be available for purchase if desired.
Then, in the afternoon, parents and professionals can participate in dynamic discussions and live demonstrations of ways to incorporate music and movement into therapy sessions, classroom structure, and everyday routines. FREE onsite childcare is available for those parents wishing to stay the full day (filled on a first-come, first-served basis).
This event is the essence of community-building. Bringing together parents, professionals, and children together for social, educational, and networking purposes...now that is LOVE. <3
