Southside United Methodist Preschool uses the Orff Approach. This approach involves the total child. It is also an approach which involves all children because each child participates at his own level of development. The Orff Approach to music includes speech, singing, non-locomotor and locomotor movement, as well as the playing of instruments. This approach teaches music effectively and also contributes to the child's growth in the areas of concentration, memory, language, cognitive development, eye-ear-hand coordination, fine and gross motor skills, creativity, emotional development and social interaction.
