World Nursery Rhyme Week – 19th to 23rd November 2018

World Nursery Rhyme Week

Over 2.5 million children have taken part in World Nursery Rhyme Week since its launch in 2013 and we are delighted to announce that the children will be participating this year

The importance of nursery rhymes for the under 7’s
Nursery rhymes play an important role in early childhood development and education. As well as being fun they are excellent teaching tools:

  • Language and communication, songs and rhymes are language learners.
  • Singing nursery rhymes can help children to develop emergent literacy skills.
  • They provide a fun way to assist with learning early maths.
  • Nursery rhymes help children to develop social, physical and emotional skills.

We too are passionate about nursery rhymes and feel their importance shouldn’t be overlooked in early years development. Each day during WNRW children will benefit from singing and playing along to songs and rhymes.
