At Waverly Square Daycare, our primary goal is to help your child to develop into a well-rounded individual. We do this by using a versatile approach that is both fun and educational for your children. The curriculum that we offer is incredibly varied, but there is one thing that we are always sure to include –music. We make music a priority in the curriculum at our preschool in Lexington, because there are many benefits of children being exposed to it:
- Creativity- Creativity helps children to solve problems and navigate the world around them in unique, out-of-the-box ways. Music can go a long way to stimulating that creativity. For instance, an exposure to music encourages children to make up songs, rhythms and even dances –all of which will help them to develop the creative side of their brain.
- Emotions- It is no secret that music evokes emotions. Music allows our children to find an acceptable, safe way to express their feelings and emotions. It helps to relieve tension, and it can even reveal feelings that are too complex to convey in other ways.
- Mathematical Thinking- Most people think of math and music as completely different things. However, countless studies have shown that there is a strong link between the development of mathematical concepts and music.
- Physical Development- Playing music, as well as dancing to music, helps your child to become aware of their body. It helps to develop muscles, coordination, balance and dexterity.
Music is a wonderful tool for learning and development, which is why we make it a point to include it into our curriculum. Discover more about what we have to offer by visiting our site today.
