Music has always been present since the day we are born and even long before that. It is integrated into our daily lives and it makes living a lot more enjoyable. For children, such is also the case and so much more. Introducing music in early childhood helps in facilitating a child’s holistic development. The following are the roles music play in a certain aspect of a child’s development process:
- It develops cognitive skills
Learning and singing songs improves a child’s language acquisition skills, helps them speak more clearly and it widens their vocabulary. Moreover, according to the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation, learning a musical instrument helps improve a child’s mathematical skills. As a provider of childcare in Louisiana, we incorporate music in our curriculum to make learning more effective and fun.
- It develops social and emotional skills
For parents, singing songs or lullabies to your children develops the bond and intimacy within your family. Moreover, singing songs in two parts teaches a child to connect with another person. Since the social and emotional development already started at home, when your child already attends daycare, he/she already knows how to bond with other children.
- It develops motor skills
Music has a constant partner and it is dancing. Once a child enjoys music, learning how to dance to the rhythm of songs is just around the corner. Dancing improves a child’s physical and motor skills. It enhances the brain and body connection.
