Developmentally appropriate music activities involve the whole child-the child's desire for language, the body's urge to move, the brain's attention to patterns, the ear's lead in initiating communication, the voice's response to sounds, as well as the eye-hand coordination associated with playing musical instruments.
At Bright Little Blossoms high quality music of different kind is provided for infants and toddlers at specific time, at a volume that is not too loud and for a duration that holds their attention.
Sensory experiences, these experiences can be beneficial, improve motor skills,raise awareness of how the world works, and contribute to language acquisition. When babies first interact with the world, they don’t have words to describe what they encounter, but they do absorb information through their senses.Sensory play can help babies build vocabulary and understand language.
At Bright Little Blossoms we use words and questions that are descriptive and relate to the child’s context and activity’s experiences in order to link sensory experiences with cognitive growth and clarify and solidify the meaning of these words (splash,scoop,smoth,shiny,dump) to the babies’ mind.
We offer art activities to support children’s large and small muscle development as well as their eye hand coordination. They express themselves nonverbally; find satisfying sensory experiences and experiment with a variety of materials. Using crayons, markers, and paintbrushes to draw their emotions and see what they are feeling. Art activities help children practice the fine motor control they will need for writing later on.
