      Music & Movement

      Music, dance, and fingerplays reach children through the way they learn best—through active, engaging, and real-life experiences. Children take naturally to music and can better understand complex pre-writing and math concepts if they’re simply addressed through music, movement, and fun. Music is a cornerstone of the Get Set for School curriculum and a strong learning tool that can be used every day to bring learning to life.
