about mainly music
Started in 1990, mainly music is a fun music group for parents or primary care givers to enjoy together with their young child. Throughout the session, children develop gross and fine motor skills, language, imagination, mathematical and pre-reading skills as well as socialize with others. Each mainly music is associated with and is run by volunteers from a local church. Children are introduced to music, creativity and more, plus families given a chance to think about the God-part of life.
- Young children and their caregivers enjoying music, rhyme, rhythm, creative dance and more.
- Preschool children developing skills – co-ordination, fine motor skills, gross motor movements, social interaction, gaining an appreciation of music and musical styles, language development.
- Providing children with a structured environment and then a time of free play.
- Bringing adult and child together for a time of safe interaction, and in doing so, teaching parents and caregivers rhymes and songs that can be used at home to help with cleaning up, colours, counting, and more.
- An opportunity for parents to network with other parents of preschool children. And for families to find a sense of ‘old fashioned community’.
Our dedicated team of volunteers are thrilled to present this activity in our local community. We are grateful for the opportunity to connect with and support families, viewing it as a wonderful privilege. We also recognize our responsibilities to provide a safe, loving and caring environment. All the team are trained in ‘Safe Ministry with Children’ and have Blue Cards as required by law. We meet on Thursday mornings commencing at 9.30 am sharp. For more information contact our team leader, Tom on 5535 3735. That’s him, third from the left. On the far left is our fantastic, dynamic session leader, Penny.
