Is mainly music right for me?
Little children love looking at puppets, ‘pretending’ with a scarf in their hand, and keeping the beat with a shaker. Little do they know, they’re developing skills. Then there’s the morning tea time, when not only does each child have a snack, they also get to play with other young children.
The music time is also attractive for parents and caregivers. It’s a chance to spend one on one time with their non school aged child, dancing and singing. And for those caregivers with twins, mainly music offers an activity where they can participate without having to bring another adult such as for swimming where twins require two adults to attend.
mainly music also offers mothers and caregivers of children of different ages (e.g. baby and toddler) a place to enjoy time together.
What else does mainly music offer parents and caregivers? – A chance to meet with other parents over a hot drink and something to eat. It’s a chance to get out of the house – finish a sentence – talk adult to adult! The children are safe and are amused by the toys. They can connect with others and enjoy adult to adult chat! Many people tell us, “mainly music is the highlight of my week.”
Remember, this is not just for mums, it's for dads, grandparents, and all caregivers!
