Ready Set Go to Kindergarten

Music and Rhyme Time!

Nicolle Bellmore Pierse - Tuesday, November 21, 2017

There are so many good reasons for using music and rhymes with young children. It is great fun for both the parent and the child.  That shared enjoyment is a wonderfully bonding, positive experience. There is a limit to the amount of meaningful conversation that is possible with a small child – songs and rhymes provide non-demanding communication and create a happy, relaxed atmosphere in the home. By developing an early love of music it helps children to develop the skills needed for learning. It increases concentration, confidence, speech development and vocabulary, as well as cognitive and memory skills. In other words, it 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!


Here is a list of favorite songs for 2-5 year olds including counting, role play, and storytelling with plenty of actions and movement which are all invaluable tools for learning with lots of guaranteed enjoyment!

Songs for 2 – 5 year olds:
