Rhythm Time are delighted to be celebrating the second National Early Years Music Week after its highly successful launch last year! This fabulous week will be starting on 27th January 2020.
This national event will raise awareness and celebrate the amazing benefits that music and singing can bring to children in their early years.
Kathy Doolan (founder of Rhythm Time), decided to create this very special awareness week because in the last 10 years, research has proven that music-making and singing with babies and toddlers is fundamental to their early development. Many parents go along to classes for fun, but are unaware of the long-term educational benefits that music provides. With the recent cuts in education, music is seen as an optional extra, and is always the first subject to be dropped. However research shows that it is actually one of the most important subjects a child can do, as it has the power to unlock every child’s potential, and benefit so many other areas of their lives.
Did you know:
- Music is the only activity that stimulates and activates every part of your baby's brain?
- Music boosts a range of essential learning skills and helps to develop your child's memory, concentration, creativity and overall self-confidence?
- Musical activities are a powerful tool to enhance your child's communication, language, literacy & mathematical skills - a perfect foundation for school?
- During this special week, our Rhythm Time classes will include fun activities that help demonstrate the wonderful benefits of music. Join in the fun and wear something yellow! And why not bring a friend (booking essential as places limited).
As part of this important event, we've also produced a FREE GUIDE on how music can benefit your little one. Download it here.
There are also some FREE colouring sheets for your Little One to enjoy at home! Preschool Sheet. Toddler Sheet.
We'd like to thank our partner Usborne for providing some wonderful books which will be included in our classes throughout the week. Singing and reading are very closely linked and fundamental to every child's early development.
We look forward to seeing you and your little ones at this fabulous event!
