While parents all over the world have been rocking and bonding with their babies and young children through lullabies, rhymes and song for ages, scientists have proven that young children thrive on music!
Forrestal Academy has tapped into music’s proven ability to boost social-emotional growth, language development, early literacy skills, listening and so many other essential school/life readiness skills. By utilizing research-based curriculum that uses music and movement as a vehicle to better engage and teach young children, your child will be off to a wonderfully fun head start!
Music has so many benefits and helps your child’s brain cells make the connections needed for virtually every kind of intelligence. When your child listens, dances, moves to and plays instruments, music can support your child in:
- Identifying and expressing rhythmic patterns
- Music appreciation
- Listening acuity
- Musical vocabulary
- Eye-hand coordination
- Sharing and taking turns
- Cooperative play
- Spatial awareness
- Pattern awareness and prediction
- Sequence development
- Improving their gross and fine motor skills
Forrestal Academy also wants to get the whole family involved. We provide your family with materials that support the classroom learning and extend it into the home environment. These materials are part of our Parent Partnership to increase your involvement in your child’s early childhood education and will be a fun bonus the whole family will love.
