Music ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness, including intellectual, social-emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. Music and movement instruction has been shown to improve children's memory, cognitive development

The role of active play has been established not just as a part of learning, but as the basis for overall healthy social and emotional development. Research shows that encouraging free movement can give children space to develop self-awareness, learn non-verbal ways of communicating and to get to know themselves and their body.
