“Done for You” Preschool Music and Movement Curriculum

All the hard work has been done for you, whether you are

  • a music teacher
  • an educator working in an Early Childhood Centre or School
  • a home-based carer of babies, toddlers and preschoolers
  • a director of a community program, arts academy, church outreach group . . .

We’re not a franchise so you get the flexibility you need to change the curriculum according to the interests of the children and your own preferences. You are free to change activities and swap in new song content.

In this activity-based curriculum, the children listen, play, improvise, learn songs and dances, discover and create music through their voices, bodies and simple percussion instruments. You get to experience the joy!

How Does It Work?

 

Do you feel like nobody ever taught you how to program music for preschool? Fortunately, here’s a way to get started with these four Preschool Music ProgramsSing and Play 1, 2, 3, & 4. When you purchase them together you’ll have a year-long program. (NOTE: Members of the Courses  “Early Childhood Music Hub” or “Preschool and Junior Music Curriculum” already have access to the whole Sing and Play Curriculum.)

Feel your confidence rise as you implement this curriculum straight “out of the box”.

You gain a whole library of work in one purchase!

  • Each program runs for 10 or 13 weeks, your choice. You can match one program to a 10 week school term; two programs to a 20 week semester; or with all four programs, extend each one to 13 weeks so you have enough resources to run for the whole calendar year
  • When you buy all four programs, you have more than enough content to run a year. The content is made up of 20 lesson plans, five in each program. Each lesson plan has enough material for a 45 minute session and  lasts 2 or 3 weeks, your choice.
  • Because children develop so much within one year, you can repeat the four programs the following year. The children will gain great benefit and pleasure from revisiting the songs and activities by activating their musical memory and gaining greater skill.
  • Or, if you prefer to offer completely new content each year a child is in your sessions, split the material from each lesson plan into two sets, add in your own additional content and run different sessions for the 3 and 4-year-olds
  • Use the programs as they are until you gain the confidence to change them or write your own.
  • The curriculum for 3-5-years-old is called Sing and Play — a comprehensive, research-based, music and movement curriculum for preschoolers and school beginners.
  • All the musical recordings are included with a license covering use with up to 200 children per enrolment period
  • You can display lyric charts for every song so you never get lost for words.

Educators love how they can just pick up any Sing and Play Educator’s Book and start using it even with no formal music training.
