Introduction

"Highly recommended for any one with pre-school aged children!"

- MumDadPlus4, parenting blog review

Our brand new collection of preschool songs were written by Al Start with the children from Tarnerland Nursery in Brighton, UK as part of the Our Future City project (#BeWell).

We looked at tricky times of the day (getting changed, washing hands, lunchtime, packing up) and concepts that are very important for the children to understand such as sharing, washing hands, drinking water, being kind. Then we wrote some songs based on well known nursery rhyme tunes to make them easy to learn, added the Makaton signs and Al made 2 films per song. One for staff to practice their Makaton with an introduction from Al. The second film is to play to the children on your interactive whiteboard or computer (with no intro). Al wrote some songs with new tunes to give a little variety and challenge, and the collection was born!

The project was based around wellbeing, nursery staff measured the children's wellbeing on the Leuven scale before the project and again after 10 weeks, and there was an astonishing improvement of general happiness, self-confidence, speech & language development and general engagement in the setting's activities accross the board. Some children improved by 3-4 points on the scale just by adding singing & signing into their day!

Try our Tidy Up Song for free in your setting then download the entire collection to develop your staff team's visual communication skills, (Makaton) confidence and rapport. Introduce it to the children for fun, engagement, increased self-confidence and language & communication development.

Hello, I'm Al! I started Go Kid Music in 2015 because I believe we need more great songs for children and their families. I used to be a Playworker and have trained in play, creative learning and child development. I studied music at Brighton Institute of Modern Music in 2003 and gained a distinction in Songwriting & Modern Composition. I have toured extensively and produce music and events for families. I teach singing in schools. We've made a short film to show you what we do at Go Kid Music and why children love it so much - watch it HERE! I hope you enjoy these songs, get in touch and let me know!"
