For parents/caregivers and children ages 0-5
Singing, signing, moving, and dancing together bring pleasure, connection, and learning. Songs can also be used to mark important transitions in your child’s day such as hellos and good-byes, waiting, missing, wishing, and sleeping time. Don’t worry if you don’t have any singing training: every voice is a singing voice!
Come as often as you like. Though we won’t be together physically at our Family Sing-along, we’ll still enjoy an experience of joyful play.
Singing together virtually is new territory for us all!
We encourage you to join by video to enhance connection.
“Singing together in community is a way to support every child’s feeling of belonging, to create comfort with their identity, to break isolation, to harness the positive power of songs to shape children’s sense of fairness and justice, and to empower even young children to speak up against injustice. The world deeply needs children’s ability to include everyone, to express authentic feelings, to take the perspective of others, to resolve conflict nonviolently, to make the world a more just and peaceful place.” - Adrienne Hoskins

Adrienne Hoskins, M.A.
Adrienne sees young children as skillful problem-solvers, clear-eyed and hungry for a focus on what’s fair and not fair. Adrienne has been singing with young children and their families in circle times and sing-alongs for nearly four decades. Her passion for anti-bias education began with the birth of her three children in the 1980s. She wrote her graduate thesis for Pacific Oaks College on using singing with young children as a tool for counteracting bias and creates intentional group singing experiences to bring about a feeling of belonging and playful connection. Adrienne has served as the Director of both Ojai Valley Community Nursery School and the early childhood program at Oak Grove School, as a teacher of infants, toddlers, preschoolers, parents, and teachers, including at Secure Beginnings, as a children’s librarian, folk singer, and children’s music specialist.
