WOOHOO! Registration opens today for World Nursery Rhyme Week™ (19th – 23rd November), a global initiative that promotes the importance of nursery rhymes in early childhood development and education. This year Mrs Mactivity are proud to announce that we are the new sponsor of this event – along with Piccolo music and will be providing a core set of high quality resources free of charge, along with some additional World Nursery Rhyme Week resources that you can find right here.
Launched in 2013, more than 2.5 million children from 62 countries have taken part from Early Years settings and with parents. Claire Bennett, founder of Music Bugs™ who organise the initiative said,
“We are delighted to once again launch this incredibly popular initiative and announce our partnership with Mrs. Mactivity who have developed some wonderful resources for the children. Each year, participation numbers and the many activities organised around the world in schools, at home and Early Years settings surpass the previous year and it’s such a privilege to see the enjoyment participants get from taking part”.
We are absolutely delighted to have been invited to be part of World Nursery Rhyme Week 2018 and can’t wait for everyone to see the beautiful resources we have designed exclusively for the children taking part. We believe that nursery rhymes are a fundamental right of childhood and form an integral part of learning in every home and Early Years setting. May World Nursery Rhyme Week long continue!
World Nursery Rhyme Week focuses on the learning benefits of nursery rhymes for young children. In particular, the initiative focuses on how rhymes can advance key developmental skills such as communication, language and literacy.
