Being responsive to their families’ needs and engaging with all families in their community

Steps into Music – An Early Years Music Project for Sound Connections

This project looked to provide Music and Movements sessions for children under 5 and their parents. The report explains that, “the Music and Movements sessions were really popular and ran at full capacity. The excitement and noise generated by guest musicians brought new users to the sessions from within the centre with much positive feedback from users.”

The sessions worked as a way of engaging often difficult to reach groups, with fathers frequently attending sessions and ESOL students recognising them as a great way to learn more English and meet other parents as well as settle their children in the crèche.

Parents have said that following the Music and Movements sessions their child’s language skills and interaction with other children have improved and parents have learned new ways to play with their child/ren.
