Develop Fine and Gross Motor Skills
Children discover different rhythmic patterns and develop their movement by shaking and dancing to fun songs, while their fine motor skills develop by playing different percussion instruments. Clapping, stomping, crawling and dancing to carefully chosen songs and rhymes, develop children’s balance, coordination, strength and overall gross motor skills.
Build Vocabulary, Intonation and Tone
Singing helps with developing children’s English language understanding and speech. Children and caregivers get inspired by Cleo to sing-a-long with her, enjoy practising familiar and new songs as well as rhymes, in a playful way. Caregivers can later sing the songs and chant the rhymes they learned,thus, bond with the children even more.
Build Social and Emotional Wellbeing
Interaction with the teacher, the peers and other caregivers, can help children practice their social-emotional skills. Both children and caregivers can share the happiness and joy that singing and music can offer. In our exceptional music classes friendships form, that may continue outside the classroom, by sharing different parenthood experiences.
Develop Musical Skills
Children receive opportunities to explore musical concepts of pitch, dynamics, tempo, rhythm and beat, as well as developing in-tune singing, through our fun, play-based program. Moreover, they get to touch, squeeze and hold many interesting objects such as fluffy animals and colorful balls, developing their sensory and fine motor skills. Tapping rhythm sticks, shaking maracas, shaking colorful scarves, enjoying the Puppet show, the parachute games and the bubbles, promotes children’s holistic development through music, drama and movement. Music is performed live and without backing tracks with a focus on nurturing children’s lifelong love of music.
Build Cognitive Skills
Children learn a range of fun songs and rhymes through music, role play, movement, actions, games and by using different props. Parents often share with Cleo videos of their child performing a song or chanting a rhyme, while showing all the actions they learned during the classes. Such videos are the evidence that Sing along Kids early English and music education program works miracles developing children’s thinking skills, memory, and overall cognition.
Enjoy our Baby Concert
Children and their caregivers experience a live Baby Concert on the recorder and the quitar, while Cleo sings for them with her beautiful voice. Children get mesmerised by her singing, some stay still and listen, while others get closer wishing to touch the recorder and the quitar. It is amazing to watch how children respond to the sound of live music by moving to the rhythm, trying to form words, and trying to sing-a-long. At the end of the Baby Concert children are welcome to try out the quitar.
