The Center for Early Childhood is proud of our community roots in Northeast Ohio.

At The Music Settlement, we believe that music is learned in much the same way as language. First, children hear live examples of speech, then they are encouraged to make sounds that approximate words. All of our programs are based on a developmental sequence that acknowledges and encourages the natural responses of children.

Early Childhood programs are perfect for schools, early childhood centers, community centers, libraries, and more.

For information about how our Early Childhood educators can work with the children at your school, organization, or community center in Northeast Ohio, please contact Karen Heitlingter, Chair, Center for Early Childhood.
