Arkie Education

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.

The essence of creativity is figuring out how to use what you already know in order to go beyond what you already think

Arkie recording studio

Our amazing studio space has been inspired by our association with The Rolling Stone Australia magazine.  We are lucky enough to have had our music room designed to enable us to record our Arkie children as they learn to create and express themselves through the joy of music.

Please take the time to stop by and visit the “Rolling Pebbles” space when you visit our Centre in Wahroonga.
