Music - the universal language
The essential nature of music is intangible and yet a universal source of delight. Music has been linked to positive emotion, aiding the wellbeing and the self-regulation of children.
We are born primed to learn and recognise melodies. We also have the ability to remember things presented in a melodic format. At Arkie we build on these abilities through our intentional teaching programs.
Through dance children learn to co-ordinate their bodies and use movement as the conduit for personal, social, emotional, spiritual and physical communication.
At Arkie we have specialised activities which are inclusive and celebrate all cultures. We have regular incursions which expose the children to different styles and forms of music and dance. Arkie children also enjoy the benefits of regular yoga classes at the centre.
