Early Head Start Solutions

0-3 music and movement curricula creating an equitable base for lifelong learners

Why is music and movement important for Early Head Start programs?

Research shows that by age 3, a child’s brain is 80% developed. There’s also a direct correlation between musical learning and early academic and social-emotional success.

That’s what Kindermusik’s Early Head Start multi-sensory curriculum kits provide: song, instrument play, dancing, bonding activities, and more that engage all lobes of the brain at once, maximizing whole-child development, and positively impacting individual trajectories.

It’s easy to implement and rewarding to lead.

Minimum prep time. Maximum teacher-child engagement.

TunedIn Level 1
