Talk, Read, Sing: Building Young Brains through the Arts

The first years of a child’s life are an important time for development that sets up the stage for what happens next. During this window, parents can build young brains through simple and meaningful actions such as talking, reading, and singing.

Best of all, when kids engage with the arts, they do what kids do best: playing. So belt out a song, get out the crayons and the costumes, and enjoy the arts with your child. Now is a great time to encourage their natural curiosity and creativity.

Children who are exposed to the arts early on reap many benefits. When children sing their favorite songs or read nursery rhymes, they are building their vocabularies. When they dance or paint, they’re refining important motor skills. Young children who are exposed to the arts build self-confidence and learn to think creatively and accept multiple perspectives, all of which foster creative problem solving and empathy. In fact, studies have shown that music education facilitates better learning outcomes in other subjects, including math.
