    We are moving from a half-day to full-day pre-k model. We are wanting to add a quality Music & Movement program to our schedule.Is there anyone currently using a program that you could recommend?

    Judy as a music and movement specialist I would say look for preschool music teachers in your area. You could contact The Children's Music Network and see if there are any members in your area.

    We are lucky enough to have a licensed music teacher on staff.  She visits all of the classrooms in addition to teaching in one of them.  She writes her own curriculum, but I know she uses a lot of material from PreschoolProdigies.com.  They teach notes and timing and we coordinate our instruments (desk bells and Boomwhackers) with some of their materials.  She is also teaching the hand flute to our older students this year!
