Back to School Songs for Preschool

Preschool Back to School songs always help set the mood when you are welcoming students in your classroom. Try these fun and easy to learn ones with your new students!

Sing! Preschoolers love rhyme and repetition because it’s how they learn! Songs provide a wealth of both. Some children will love to sing their hearts out loud while others may take in the music and not quite be ready to sing. 

Don’t be fooled though, children are learning even if they don’t parrot the words and often times those who are quiet at church or school will sing the words at home but not elsewhere. 

No matter which ones you try, you will find preschoolers loving sound, rhythm, beat and melody along with lyrics. Here are a variety of preschool Back to School songs that I have found to work well with 2-4 year olds. 

Preschool Back to School Songs

I Like to Go to School

sung to the tune of The Farmer in the Dell

I like to go to school,

Hi-ho-the-derrio,

I like to sing new songs,

I like to sing new songs,

Hi-ho-the-derrio,

I like to sing new songs.


I like to make new friends,

I like to make new friends,

Hi-ho-the-derrio,

I like to make new friends.

The More We Get Together

The more we get together, together,

The happier we'll be!

'Cause your friends are my friends,

And my friends are your friends,

The more we get together,

The happier we'll be!

Welcome to Our Classroom

Welcome to our classroom,

Come in and sit right down.

There's lots to see and do.

And making friends with you!


The Summer's Over
