Songs and Rhymes

Singing songs and rhymes is the perfect way to bond with your baby
and share quality time. It also aids language development by introducing the natural sounds and patterns of speech. Combining these
with actions stimulates the brain and helps muscle development and coordination.

When saying or singing rhymes, adults speak more softly and slowly, making it easier for the baby to understand, and the rhythm is a source of comfort. Actions in rhymes add an element of surprise, fun and laughter - ensuring an enjoyable shared experience.

Babies discover the essence of communication through movement and musicality. Babies and children who 'learn' nursery rhymes and songs develop an understanding of turn taking and joining in, which is essential for communication and dialog. They also do better when learning to read and write as they already have an understanding
of how language works. As well
as actions and finger rhymes developing fine motor coordination, they also help your child develop body awareness. Repeating rhymes will also aid the development of sequential memory.
