We support your child in building a confident self-image. We enhance confidence through movement, dramatic play, and group activities; support the development of new skills and individual talents in art, music, and dance; and promote creative writing through daily writing opportunities. We provide opportunities for kindergartners to work in teams; support taking turns to perform classroom jobs to develop cooperation skills, a sense of accomplishment, and pride; and develop a sense of community and cultural awareness through discussions about shared goals and experiences.
Research has shown that the benefits of music education include improved reading and reasoning ability, self-esteem and vocational preparation. Music ignites all areas of child development: intellectual, social and emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy.
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. Kindergartners sing songs with words and melody patterns that are repetitive and easy to learn.
