Music and dance are vital components of Podar Prep’s early childhood education. We recognise the profound impact of music and dance on a child’s brain development. Here are some insights and tips on how incorporating these elements can boost holistic learning and development in children:
Stimulating Brain Development with Music
– Music plays a pivotal role in enhancing brain communication. The left brain processes words in music, while the right brain responds to rhythm. Exposing children to music at Podar Prep, therefore, is not just about enjoyment; it’s a strategic approach to stimulate their cognitive development. Including a mix of contemporary and classical music in their daily routine enriches their learning experience.
Integrating Music Through Play
– Incorporating music can be as simple as playing a fun game of ‘Red Light, Green Light’. When the music plays, children dance and move, and when it stops, they freeze. This activity, part of our curriculum for kids, promotes not only physical coordination but also listening skills and self-control.
The Calming Influence of Music
– Playing music during routine activities such as mealtime or bath time can have a soothing effect on children. At Podar Prep, we believe in the power of classical music to relax and rejuvenate young minds, contributing to a balanced and child-centric education.
Overall Development Through Music and Dance
– Music and dance are not just extracurricular activities; they are integral to child development. They enhance motor skills, boost creativity, and improve emotional well-being. This approach aligns with Podar Prep’s philosophy of holistic learning, where every activity is designed to contribute to the overall growth of the child.
Engaging Parents in the Learning Process
– We encourage parents to try these activities at home and share their experiences and photographs. This active participation is a part of positive parenting and helps in understanding toddler behaviour, creating a cohesive learning environment both at school and at home.
Hence, we believe that music and dance play a key role in nurturing well-rounded, happy, and intellectually stimulated children. Let’s keep the rhythm of learning going!
