Music and movement are an important component in healthy development for all children, especially in the early years. Preschoolers learn through motion and hands-on activities. Music is not only important for development but also for social and cultural connections to one another. We would like to build a music library for the preschoolers with sturdy musical instruments and activities to enhance movement in spacial awareness.
We want to be able to provide sturdy musical equipment that will hold up to the demands of the preschool activity. We would like enough equipment to do in small groups allowing the children to have the same piece of equipment along with doing large group activities with a variety of equipment. The staff is very committed to using the tools of music and movement to help our children with spacial awareness, transitions, cooperation with each other, and express their emotions in a creative way.
