Peppermint Tree Director and Mr. Scott the Music Man to Speak at the NAEYC National Conference in Orlando FL in November

June 14th, 2011 by Valerie Frost-Lewis

We have just received the exciting news that The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) has once again selected Valerie Frost-Lewis, the owner/director of The Peppermint Tree Child Development Center and her husband, Scott Lewis, aka “Mr. Scott the Music Man”, to make a presentation on the topic of early childhood music and movement at their annual conference. The title of our presentation will be: “Move Your Feet to the Beat!: A high energy, motivating, interactive exploration of music and movement in the early childhood classroom.” We will be making this presentation at NAEYC’s 2011 Annual Conference, November 2-5 in Orlando, FL.

This is a huge honor, especially since we are being asked back after our presentation at last year’s annual conference. This conference is attended by over 10,000 early childhood educators from around the country and around the world. Last year we had a few hundred people participate in our interactive music and movement session.

Participating in professional development activities is a part of our commitment to advocate for the benefit of young children and to share our work so other early childhood professionals may benefit and positively impact their work with young children. Not only are we sharing our work, but we also go to these conferences to learn from other professionals so we may continue to improve our work with the children and families of The Peppermint Tree.
