    Dr. J. L. Kemp provides social-emotional analysis of various forms of audio and visual media directed towards children - with the goal of assisting them in properly processing the themes and messages within the imagery, making determinations between appropriate and inappropriate behavior, and adjusting their own behavior according to school, family, and community expectations.

     

    Music Education

    Preschool music education supports development at a critical period in children's lives. It ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness, including intellectual, social-emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together. Exposing children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words.

     

    Library Hour

    One of the main goals of early childhood education is to help young children develop a love of reading. Reading books aloud to children stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world. It helps them develop language and listening skills and prepares them to understand the written word, which is how they develop a foundation for writing.

     

    Health & Development

    It has long been shown that physical development contributes to cognitive development. The process of moving and exploring the world around you, helps strengthen bones, muscles, the heart and lungs. It also helps improve coordination, balance, posture and flexibility. Children benefit from this type of instruction by maintaining a healthy weight, which reduces the risk of getting heart disease, cancer and type-2 diabetes later in life.
