Musical Sessions for Littlies

Sing With Me or Baby Rhyme Time
These sessions were originally designed for libraries who would like me to do a presentation to parents about the "Sing With Me" Packs from Better Beginnings or a Baby Rhyme Time to complement an established program. The sessions involve a short speech to the parents and caregivers in the room before we launch into lots of lovely singing, dancing and listening to the Sing With Me feature story, and plenty of bounces, rhymes and fun for the baby sessions. As they are such popular sessions, they are now also available for community events, parent groups and early learning settings for younger children.
*******************************************

Storytelling shows usually run for a length of 50 minutes, musical sessions for 30-45 minutes + and art sessions for 1 hour. 
My sessions are best suited to children aged 3-7 years, however I am able to tailor them to suit younger audiences on request.
