Children of all ages express themselves through music. Big Foot Preschool believes that music helps the body and the mind work together. Exposing children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words. Dancing to music helps children build motor skills while allowing them to practice self-expression. For children and adults, music helps strengthen memory skills.
Music and dance is has great emphasis in Big Foot Preschool’s curriculum. Children sway, bounce, or move their hands in response to music they hear daily. Many preschoolers make up songs and, with no self-consciousness, sing to themselves as they play. Children l learn to sing together as a group and possibly learn to play a musical instrument. Older children dance to the music of their favorite bands and use music to form friendships and share feelings. Try these activities and games with your children to experience the pleasure and learning that music brings.
