Movement & Music

EXPRESS YOURSELF THROUGH DANCE, DRAMA & MUSIC


"Young children have an innate need to make sense of the world. The arts in the Full-Day Early Learning–Kindergarten program provide a vehicle through which children can express their growing sense of self and their interpretation of the world. Visual arts, music, dance, and socio-dramatic play contribute in many ways to the development of children’s thinking and communication skills. Providing children with opportunities to express themselves through the arts develops decision making skills, stimulates memory, facilitates understanding, develops symbolic communication, promotes sensory development, and encourages creative thinking." (FULL DAY KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM, page 140)
