Clapping, tapping, dancing and clicking – some easy tricks to draw attention of your little one to you. Why so? Because what is not regular excites curiosity and inquisitiveness. In the process, the child often picks up a thing or two.

Furthering the spirit of learning, Apeejay Rhythms Kinderworld, Greater Kailash-II recently organised a ‘Music and Movement’ session for Kindergarten children and their parents. Tapping into the infinite reservoir of imagination of the Kindergarteners, in the event, teachers and school staff introduced them to mysteries, problem-solving and discoveries. 

By using different Music and Movement tools, educators created an atmosphere of rhythm and harmony, so that children can feel free to express, perform and build upon their imagination. The session was an open platform for verbal and physical expression of the little ones.

The day commenced with an address of the school’s Headmistress, Ms. Komal Nathani. In her speech, she emphasised the importance of music in a child’s life and implored parents to support their child’s natural instincts and passion.

Packed with a plethora of activities, the session became an exciting opportunity for the kids and their parents. The first programme was the outstanding sequence of a musical story, ‘Head to Toe’ by Eric Carle. The students and teachers collaboratively enacted the animal actions with great enthusiasm.

The next was, ‘Play Those Drums!’ in which children received creative with kitchen utensils, used pans and spoons, and were asked to make the rhythm of music from it. The hall was abuzz as students showcased their tunes. The sounds left the audience mesmerised.

Shortly, teachers, parents along with their little ones moved and grooved to Twirl-Scarf dance by using colorful scarves, Shake-Shake song and sleeping bunnies.

Speaking about her experience at the session, Dr. Shiva Khurana, mother of student Nihit Sahni says, “I thoroughly enjoyed myself in the school. I would like to express my gratitude to the school teachers and Ms. Komal Nathani Ma’am. We were made to feel very special and involved during the event. It is great to witness how the school is taking exceptional efforts to make children learn. I feel that such events should be organised each week.”

Sharing a similar sentiment, Ms. Priyanka Arora, mother of student Ayaan Arora says, “I am a working parent and my work largely keeps me occupied at least 5 days a week. This event was a great opportunity for me to know more about my child’s progress in the school, meet his teachers and witness how beautifully learning is imparted by them.”

Lastly, Mr. Puneet Shridhar marked the end of the event with a rocking performance of classical English melodies. Students and parents were left dancing to his beats. The event concluded with refreshments and a Vote of Thanks.

“When young children are consistently engaged with music in an age- appropriate socially accepting environment, they benefit at many levels. It has an effect on their socio-emotional, physical, creative and quantitative being as well as their capacity for early literacy. With this, they further develop a lifelong love for music.”
