Preschool children and their caregivers enjoy:

  • music, rhyme, rhythm, creative dance and more
  • developing skills – co-ordination: large and fine motor movements,
  • social interaction,
  • appreciation of music and musical styles, language development
  • a structured environment and then a time of free play
  • time together for a time of safe interaction, and in doing so, teaching adults 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
  • parenting workshops to help build the skills of parents
  • social activities for adults; primarily mothers; meals and movie nights,
    an annual activity for families
  • opportunities for families to be helped – practical needs such as meals, transport, help with shifting house, baby sitting
  • Celebration of Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day – reminding parents that they are undertaking a very important role as parent

In short, mainly music is an opportunity for adults and children to build memories and spend time together, sharing special time with each other

Aim:
The aim of mainly music is to provide an environment where preschool children develop skills to enhance their preschool education, through the use of music, rhythm, rhyme, and other music related activities with the participation of a parent or primary caregiver.

A quick overview
Each week, parents and caregivers bring their children for a 30 minute session of music, rhyme, movement, listening and more. The adults are asked to participate in the session, and in fact, it is vital that they do so, to encourage the children to participate in the actions and singing.

After the music session, adults and children are given morning tea. This allows time for children to enjoy each others company, and to develop social skills, whilst giving adults who don’t have a wide circle of friends, an opportunity to meet with others who have preschoolers and encouraged to “learn” from each other.
