All children love music. Most of our little ones move, dance and sing all day long. In our Preschool, we support and foster this love by accompanying various rituals with songs: time of arrival, leaving time, birthdays, to name but a few. In addition every group has 30 - 45 minutes of more formal music classes on a fortnightly basis. We learn new songs, mainly in English to aid language acquisition, we dance and play musical coordination- and counting games, we act out songs, sometimes we use simple Orff instruments. We introduce our preschoolers to the rich assortment of traditional German children's songs and seasonal German songs. And we are rewarded by the children’s' pure joy during the big music circle.
