Music has a tremendous impact inside and outside of the classroom for students and mentors alike. Music ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness, including intellectual, social-emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together. Exposing children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words.
Make music in the playground, classroom or home. Involve all your child’s senses by using many different instruments such as drums, cymbals, chimes or bells, which will stimulate their auditory and tactile senses. Children enjoy music and movement in early childhood education because it brings out the way they naturally express themselves and can increase their confidence.
