SING.PLAY.LOVE.® is a unique outcomes-based program that helps early childhood professionals and parents share fun and engaging songs, picture books, music videos, and other instructional supports to teach young children important skills for early learning and kindergarten readiness.
 
Developed by music therapist and early interventionist Anne Meeker Watson, Ph.D., the program utilizes music and play-filled activity to help children learn and practice skills for social-emotional development, language, and literacy.
 
"I want all young children to LOVE learning."
--Dr. Anne Meeker Watson  

A message from Anne Meeker Watson

 I developed the SING.PLAY.LOVE.® program for one important reason: I want all young children to love learning.

 

And as a music therapist and early childhood specialist, I’ve made it my life’s work to figure out the best ways to help youngsters fall in love with learning.

                                                 

What I have discovered from working – and playing - with thousands of toddlers and preschoolers is that music is a powerful and important teaching tool. Music can make learning playful, pleasurable … and magical.  SING.PLAY.LOVE.® is a unique outcomes-based program that motivates and engages children to learn the skills they need to be successful in school.

 

I would love to partner with you to help you teach the child or children you love all the things they need to be successful in school and in life. I truly believe that we can work together to teach your child to love learning, as we create a strong foundation of social-emotional and academic skills.

 

Anne
