Nursery Rhymes! (Social/Emotional Development)

Sep 08, 2020

Nursery Rhymes promote Social and Emotional Development

Singing and reciting nursery rhymes together with your child creates a very real and special bond. Studies have shown that singing, even more than talking, keeps babies calm and can lead to stronger social bonds with parents.

  • This bond can be increased through physical touch, as you snuggle up during a lullaby or interact during clapping rhymes or tickle songs
  • Humor and emotional awareness are important social skills that begin to be developed through the stories and characters found in nursery rhymes. 
  • Finally, nursery rhymes connect children to history whether it’s through historical events alluded to in the poem, or by learning a rhyme that has been passed through their family from generation to generation.
