Community Helpers: Preschool Songs

Community helpers are an important part of our lives. They help us in ways we can’t even imagine. But do you know what their jobs are? There are so many community helpers, that it’s hard to keep track! That’s why today, I’m going to introduce you to a few of them through some fun preschool songs. So get ready, because we’re about to take a fun tour of the community!

kids singing

Add this list of preschool songs to your community helpers unit! Kids engage quickly and easily with songs. Plus, songs add so much richness to a child’s learning igniting a desire to want to learn more about a particular topic. Furthermore, music needs to be a part of a child’s learning & development.

In other words, music, whether singing or playing instruments, or dancing, is far more than entertaining a child. For example, a child uses multiple senses, learns patterns, ignites storytelling, gets the body moving, and develops an understanding of rhythm.  Finally, at the end of the day singing and dancing are just plain old fun and why not make learning fun?

Lyrics

Hi Teacher, Hi mailman, Hi doctor, Hi nurse
Hi Truck driver, Hi cashier it’s nice to see you again!

In my neighborhood
so many people take care of me
In my neighborhood
It’s like we’re family

Hi policeman, hi Dentist, Hi waiter, Hi Zookeeper,
Hi plumber, Hi coach, it’s nice to see you again!

In my neighborhood
so many people take care of me
In my neighborhood
It’s like we’re a family!

Bridge
And when I grow up, oh the thing I could be
So many jobs make me happy

All of us together like a family
makes a great community!

Hi Fireman, Hi soldier, Hi farmer, Hi bus driver,
Hi lifeguard, Hi builder it’s nice to see you again!
It’s nice to see you again!
It’s nice to see you again!
