Reception – Year 1

Musical Learning

Research shows music helps children become better learners, and that even a newborn child emotionally responds to music. Research also shows that there is a link between mathematical abilities in students and their musical awareness.

The fun, energetic “Musical Learning” program is the perfect way to start a child’s lifelong educational career and to learn English in an enjoyable way!

The most important learning years are from 0 – 6 as the brain forms vital connections. When we are born, we have billions of brain cells. The minute we start receiving stimuli, such as the light our eyes see, the sounds we hear, and what we touch, the brain begins to form connections.
