Preschool Music Programs
Preschool music programs are a wonderful way for children to explore their creativity in a stimulating, hands-on environment. A 2016 study from the Brain and Creativity Institute at the University of Southern California discovered that musical experiences can accelerate brain development in children, enhancing both their reading and language skills. Preschool music programs also spur the social, emotional, motor, language and intellectual development of a child at any age.
With so many distinct benefits, seeing the children learning through our preschool music program is a joy to behold. From infancy, children are able to recognize a song’s melody before even being able to understand the words. By toddler age, song repetition has wonderful effects for their memory, and silly songs have the ability to make them laugh.
The preschool music curriculum at Parkview Children’s Centre sees children blissfully making music with the use of fun and simple instruments while learning about the key components of music. This enriches their experience at school, allowing them to easily bond and make friends with one another. Music education for preschoolers is a gift that will enhance every aspect of the early childhood experience.
Suzie Sunshine – Preschool Music Curriculum
Suzie Sunshine is a dynamic individual who not only performs but also educates children about music. Her performances have delighted preschool audiences since the 1970’s. We are proud to have the Suzie Sunshine Program be the foundation of our preschool music curriculum in our infant, toddler and preschool classrooms.
She has recently authored a book series on the great composers of history, and presents classical pieces to the children in a fun and engaging way that broadens their musical knowledge. Our children in the daycare music program always cherish her visits, happily singing along to songs new and old, learning about composers, using instruments and learning about rhythm and tone.
Music Education For Infants, Toddlers and Preschoolers
At Parkview Children’s Centre, our music education for infants, toddlers and preschoolers explores beat through movement while using simple instruments. These instruments allow children to be engaged in the music making process confidently. Trying to learn complicated instruments at too young an age can make a child averse to music, so allowing them to get started with simple ones is a great confidence boost. As part of our preschool music curriculum, children will learn to differentiate between their speaking and singing voice, high and low tones, different sound variations and more. Suitable for all levels of development, the music program at Parkview Children’s Centre benefits children with differing abilities supporting their development in all areas. Every child emerges from their activities with distinct feelings of joy and accomplishment.
