Kindergarten Music Collection

Kindergarten is a magical time for children and their development. In Australia it is traditionally the year before children enter the primary school system. Aussie kids get a year of government-funded kinder when they are four and an unfunded, more informal year known as three-year-old kindergarten. Day care and preschool settings also form part of the early learning years.

At Educational Esteem we have an excellent range of the best kindergarten music and learning resources that are perfect for early learning settings and at home.

Scott Browne is well regarded as a musical specialist for the early years and his book and CD collection All Together Everyday Songs feature songs, actions, music, movement and instrument playing on day-to-day activities that children will relate to. Scott Browne wrote the All Together series for use in preschools – the songs are easy to learn and fun to sing. The topics featured in the songs are those which are most frequently used in the pre-school program including seasons, animals, space, transport, people, our senses and many more.

Action Songs for Preschoolers is a “must have’’ for your music collection. It’s also a great introduction to Georgiana Stewart’s popular classroom resources for fun-filled learning. Georgiana Stewart is a favourite artist at Educational Esteem and she is a world-renowned education specialist who is known for her music, movement and aerobic CDs, popular with teachers around the world. The songs on this CD will captivate the high-energy little people who will love “Finger Poppin’’’, “Heel, Toe’’, “Away We Go’’, “Movin’ Every Day’’ and “Doodle-Le-Doo’’.

Gary and Carol Crees are world-renowned for their resources for kids that encourage wellbeing through music and movement. Their Favourite Songs collection is full of songs & rhymes for 2-8 year olds that emphasise the Crees’ ethos for children to become more aware of their bodies and movements. Songs like “Dinosaurs Don’t Live Here Any More’’, “Rub A Dub Dub’’ and “Round In The Ring’’ will inspire lots of fun and physical activity for kinder kids. The CD also includes a teacher’s guide.

Hilary Henshaw is another Aussie music specialist for preschoolers and her songs, dances, play-alongs, games and stories enhance co-ordination, language, listening, creativity and musical skills. The CD Hilary + Music = Fun! is part of her acclaimed Growing with Music series. The series has an emphasis on helping children to grown intellectually, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Hilary’s quest is to get families to share music together for the well-being and development of children.

The duo Greg and Steve are incredibly popular and have sold more than two million recordings to date in the United States. Kids in Motion is one of their most popular CDs and their tunes are a fun way to teach children basic concepts such as colours and numbers as well as friendship and cooperation. The award-winning California-based pair have been recording and performing since the 1970s.

The popular Love to Sing series by Kiwi Linda Adamson is always a winner in kindergarten settings. Linda has an incredible gift for creating music, sung by kids for kids, which encourage movement, dance and fun. Bop-Along Songs is perfect for preschoolers and features tracks to build language and memory skills, develop fine and gross motor skills, co-ordination and musical concepts. The key point of Linda’s music is the magic connection that happens when people sing together.
