Music Program

Music has always been an important element in our curriculum as it engages children with the world of rhythm, as well as helping to develop gross motor skills and creativity. 

For children, their body is their window to the world. Touch, sound and movement together assist babies’ and children’s learning. They learn through touching, moving, seeing, hearing and tasting. Music can be part of a rich environment that ensures more brain connections are made and ensures critical periods for brain development are not missed. Music can broaden children’s experience, can teach about diversity, teach new ideas and concepts so children are more likely to feel connected and able to contribute to experiences and situations in their life.

Music and dance from other cultures, moving to action songs, songs that teach concepts, (up/down, fast/slow etc), social skills such as taking turns e.g. with instruments or in music games are all examples of musical activates we enjoy every day at Sesame Lane.

In everyday life, music is present in a variety of social and educational activities. We listen to music on TV, in the car and sing nursery rhymes. Around the world, we use songs to celebrate birthdays, our religions and our cultures. 

Given the importance of music, our Educators use music instinctively to engage or calm children. If your child has a passion for music or your family has cultural music you can share, please chat to your Educators as we would love to have your input into the program.

This is just another way Sesame Lane is inspiring learning early

Movement & Dance

Dance can improve muscle tone, correct poor posture, increase balance and coordination and improve overall cardiovascular health.

Musical Play

Children’s memory power, concentration, spatial intelligence, and thinking skills improve through exposure and active participation in musical experiences.

Exploring Sounds

Through music-making, kids develop social-emotional skills, such as better self-control, higher self-esteem and confidence.
