Music in Early Years

Music in the Early Year Foundation Stage (EYFS)


Music is an integral part of the Early Years Foundation Stage as it helps children’s development in many areas.

Singing songs and rhymes together is a great way to develop children’s communication and language skills in a fun and engaging way.


We sing everyday and learn a new rhyme/ song every week.  Singing builds the children’s confidence and helps them express their feelings and ideas.


Young children love to play musical instruments. It is excellent way for promoting the children’s physical development. They learn to move in a range of ways as they dance in time with the music. They also are beginning to learn how to replicate simple rhythms.
