Join us as we capture the delightful experiences of a trip to the zoo, drawing on the movements, sights and sounds of zoo animals to inspire musical learning. We will explore the concepts of steady beat, legato & staccato, timbre and vocal play through group play, individual exploration and a balance of structure and spontaneity – providing the stability and gentle guidance needed to nurture creativity in your little one.
Activities are conducted in an open-ended, playful atmosphere designed to maintain each child’s interest and offer a variety of ways to explore each week’s theme with babies, toddlers and preschoolers.
