Delta Chi Childcare Centres are looking towards future endeavors of each child while music collaborates in helping them to achieve their goals. Each child will continue to remember a time when music lifted them to a moment of joy and allowed their imagination to focus; here the need for music is easily recognized.
No longer can we debate the importance of music in the classroom. Scientific research in the field of music is quickly moving forward and restoring our confidence by providing clear evidence to support the advantages of teaching music and art. Students who are taught music at school are showing higher test scores than their non music counterparts within specific fields of math and language.
Memory skills developed through music are contributing in other fields of learning: stronger focus during classroom instruction and better homework practices. Among the list of students applying to medical school, music majors had the highest percentage of admittance than any other group. Research is also showing how music is actively involved in brain development and social development in an age of internet-based communication rather than face to face interaction . Scientific study is clear in affirming the advantages of musical education on cognitive, motor and social development.

Except during inclement weather, the Childcare Early Years Act requires that every child be taken outside for 2 hours throughout the day. Exposure to the open air is a powerful remedy against long-term or recurrent infections. Outdoor play is also a time when a child has the opportunity to develop and improve his/her gross motor skills.
