Why choose Baby Bliss?
Following the birth of my baby daughter, I realised there was a vast number of new parents who were actively looking for ways to enhance their baby’s play and learning with music. Nursery rhymes and lullabies have always been recognised as crucial for early language development, not to mention the loving bond that is supoorted through singing to your baby. However these early parenting skills often get forgotten in our busy lifestyles of today, and this is where Baby Bliss steps in!
The importance of music in the early years
Music and movement are vital in the early years, simultaneously promoting development in multiple domains. “Singing engages both hemispheres of the brain, and adding movements such as tapping, drumming, playing instruments, or dancing enhances brain engagement even further by stimulating the frontal lobes” ~ Campbell & Brewer
Ongoing studies throughout the world conclude that children involved in musical experiences in the early years gain opportunities to experience self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-efficacy, engage in pretend play and symbolic thinking, develop cultural awareness, cooperate and build relationships, develop fine and gross motor skills, make connections, support body awareness, practice cognitive skills and concepts, develop literacy and language skills, and much, much more!
Beginning early is the key to providing the best start possible for young children.
How do I get involved?
Baby Bliss is a specialised workshop that provides parents and caregivers of babies aged between 0-12 months the tools and confidence to explore music with their little ones, and a repetoire of songs, rhymes and fingerplays to sing with their children every day as part of their routines and transitions. Simply go to the contact bar on this page and state your name, organisation, location, number of attendees and date /time required, and your booking will be registered. Let me show you how we can open the world of imagination and play, and demonstrate just how easy it is to provide a rich music and movement program for little ones in the infant stage through to toddlerhood and beyond.
