The Benefits of Play & Music - Early Childhood Development

Musical learning starts with babies exploring

pitch, rhythm tempo and melody through songs, instrument play and movement activities.

Children expand their musical abilities as they

grow and explore activities that encourage musical expression. Research shows that introducing

young children to play and music is invaluable

to future learning and development.

Play builds imagination, creativity, fosters cognitive growth, promotes physical fitness, improves

literacy, encourages greater independence, and delivers emotional and behavioural growth. It is important for healthy brain development and to support children to Explore Learn & Grow into Confident Happy Children

Language Development & Memory

Language skills are developed, even when a child

cannot put a sentence together.

Playing instruments and exploring props
such as finger puppets, dance ribbons,
lights and parachutes help develop spatial,
reasoning and logical skills.


Fine and Gross Motor Development 

Fingerplays, dancing, playing instruments,
balance games , bilateral integration
activities, crossing the midline, body
awareness and hand-eye co ordination
games, support children to develop these
essential skills for everyday self care.


Social/ Emotional Development

through the ‘experience’ rather than
through words. Music offers
communication without words.

Our classes inspire to support the
overall well being of every child and
contribute positively to their physical
and emotional health.

Singing songs with simple tonal patterns will
enable children to learn and memorise
words and phrases.
By repeating songs from week to week we
encourage the development of the memory.
By adding new songs, we work to expand the

Music and Creative Ability
Children who take part in the Ready Steady
Play & Music Programme grow in confidence
and self-assurance. We encourage children

The Mathematical and Logical Brain

weekly themes in Ready Steady Play, do
better in math. The themes and their varying
beats and rhythms support counting and
