The Role of Music and Movement in the Montessori Primary Curriculum
Music and movement play a central role in the Montessori classroom. For primary-aged children, music and movement are ways to develop everything from fine motor skills to confidence. In the primary program at our Montessori school, music and movement are part of each day.
Children in primary education have a unique ability to appreciate and understand music, and their brains are at the perfect stage of development to absorb different sounds, melodies, and rhythms. Playing with different instruments introduces children to different cultures. Naturally, music creates an opportunity to move as well, as kids dance to beats they hear. This movement encourages expression and exploration while allowing kids to build gross and fine motor skills.
At The Montessori School, we embrace the Montessori approach throughout all of our programs, from our daycare to our primary school . Find out more about our Montessori school in Dallas by calling (972) 985-8844 or in Allen at (972) 727-2800.
