Developing an early love of music helps children to develop the skills needed for learning. It increases concentration, confidence, cognitive and memory skills. It helps builds a firm foundation for education and as a Parent, that is the best thing you can do for your child. But above all else it is fun!
Songs and rhymes are invaluable to calm, entertain and teach them. Singing songs will help your child learn through dances and actions, it also provides them an opportunity to role play and dress up. This is when they will really benefit from a music group, such as The ISM Alstonville Jitterbugs and Beeboppers music groups, as they have the opportunity to share the fun, socialise with other children their own age and learn to take part in a group.
There are so many good reasons for using music and rhymes with little children, but the most important must be that it is great fun for both of you and that shared enjoyment is a wonderfully bonding, positive experience. Songs and rhymes provide non-demanding communication and create a happy, relaxed atmosphere in the home, you can even sign them in the car or bath!
Here is a list of our favourite songs for 2-5 year olds including counting, role play, story telling, with plenty of actions and movement all invaluable tools for learning with lots of guaranteed enjoyment!
