Transition Songs for Early Years

Music Age 0-5

Soothe, educate and organise children with practical songs created to help children work together and master daily routines.

This resource includes 15 short songs that use common children’s melodies, making them fun, relatable and easy for children to learn, and simple for educators to incorporate into their lessons.

Each song is presented with backing tracks, lyrics and an activity guide to assist educators as they sing together with their children throughout the day.
