Music, movement and singing rhymes plays a huge part in supporting children’s early learning development. The Rhythm Kids programme is a mixture of yoga, music, movements and singing developed by leading child development experts to support their brain development whilst having lots of fun! It also puts the motor skills in place to set them up for life.
There are lots of benefits gained from singing rhymes to music with movement for babies and children as it enhances their overall development. Rhymes and movement to music during the early years help to develop other skills in preparation for literacy (reading/writing) it enhances short term memory and puts the motor skills in place for language development as babies and toddlers can sing along to melody and rhyme before the can talk clearly.
Movement with babies helps to oxygenate the body which helps to nourish the developing brain it also helps the brain to produce more endorphins which makes the brain more conducible to learning. Performing repetitive movements with an infant helps to strengthen the neural pathways between the body and the brain aiding over development. Rhythm Kids is all about helping to build babies brains.
