Transitional Kindergarten Solutions

Musical play preparing children for kindergarten and beyond

How can music and movement enhance TK programs?

Play-based learning is scientifically linked to stronger academic and social-emotional skills. Infusing music and movement amplifies those goals and helps build executive function, which is critical to success in the classroom.

Kindermusik’s Transitional Kindergarten Kits utilize song, read-aloud, instrument play, and dancing to give young learners every tool they need to get kindergarten-ready and have fun doing it!
