Funky kids’ mu­sic from Kindy Rock

Central Leader - - News -

Kindy­Rock, the kiwi de­signed preschool mu­sic ed­u­ca­tion pro­gramme for 0 to five-year-olds has ce­mented its pro­gramme with the release of its first two CD al­bums, Kindy­Rock Twist and Kindy­Rock Hoe­down. The CDs, pro­duced in Auck­land, al­low par­ents to con­tinue the ben­e­fits of the Kindy­Rock pro­gramme at home.

Founder Judi Cranston is adamant that ex­po­sure to mu­sic at an early age en­hances a child’s cog­ni­tive de­vel­op­ment. Of­ten asked when to start at Kindy­Rock, Judi’s quick re­sponse is al­ways “To­mor­row!”

Early Child­hood aca­demics are even more en­thu­si­as­tic about Kindy­Rock. Dr Trevor Th­waites of Uni­ver­sity of Auck­land had this to say: “Kindy­Rock is a hip-swing­ing, foot stamp­ing, twirling, whirling set. The lyrics are great and the mu­sic is so au­then­tic sound­ing. It is so rel­e­vant and hip that every­one from pre-school­ers to folks even older than me can get the groove, start to move and be liv­ing proof of this great ed­u­ca­tional mu­sic.”

The Kindy­Rock mu­sic is writ­ten es­pe­cially for New Zealand pre-school- ers and fo­cuses early child­hood de­vel­op­ment.

You don’t have to be en­rolled at Kindy­Rock to pur­chase the mu­sic CDs, they can be pur­chased on line at www.kindy­rock.

The Kindy­Rock pro­gramme fo­cuses on de­vel­op­ing cre­ativ­ity and im­prov­ing cog­ni­tive, lan­guage, so­cial and mo­tor skills in an ac­tive, fun en­vi­ron­ment with mu­sic as the driv­ing force.

The pro­gramme pro­vides an in­ter­ac­tive learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for par­ents/care­givers and chil­dren. Par­ents and kids have lots of fun!

Term two Kindy­Rock weekly fam­ily ses­sions are now avail­able in Pa­pakura, Pukekohe, Botany and Ep­som. Book­ings can be done on­line or by con­tact­ing the Kindy­Rock of­fice.
