World Nursery Rhyme Week

The importance of nursery rhymes for the under 7’s

Nursery rhymes play an important role in early childhood by helping children master key skills such as language and communication and social, physical and emotional skills.

We are passionate about nursery rhymes and feel their importance shouldn’t be overlooked in early years development.  Every day in our classes we see first-hand how children benefit from singing and playing along to the simplest of rhymes.

Who can take part?

9,000 registrations and nearly half a million children under the age of 7 took part in 2015.

Participants included: Primary Schools, Parents, Grandparents, Childminders, Nurseries, Preschools, Children’s Centres, Kindergartens, Home Educators, Parent and Toddler Groups, Health Visitors, Speech and Language Therapists, Trainee Teachers, Supply Teachers, Advisory Teachers, Play Schemes, After School Clubs, Preparatory Schools, College and University Students, Researchers, Early Years Practitioners, Crèches, Breakfast Clubs, Children’s Charities and Nannies. The above reflect the main participants, but by no means the only groups and individuals who took part in 2015.
