Parents can offer an enriching environment for their child to learn in, by including singing and fun-time exercises as part of their daily routine. Research shows that they are a powerful learning tool, because singing to babies and children and encouraging them to join in, has a beneficial effect on the development of the brain.
The uses of rhymes, when frequently repeated, play a vital role in the development of language. The beneficial, repetitive element of signing rhymes is further enhances when accompanied by a rhythmical exercises. These can help a child retain their flexibility, gain strength and improve muscle tone; as well as potentially enhancing the development of co-ordination and balance.
When working through the fun-time exercises your baby will have the opportunity to experience play time on the floor, in your arms and balances on your legs. They will be able to see the world from all dimensions and feel what it is like to be turned around, swayed from side to side and lifted up and down. The rhymes and exercises allow you to help your baby learn, develop and play whilst having fun!!!
