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:

Nursery rhymes and children’s songs boost vocabulary and language development

They help children to develop literacy skills

They provide a fun way to support early numeracy skills

Nursery rhymes help children to develop social, physical and emotional skills.

Today’s rhyme is Two Little Dickie Birds
