Musical toddler and baby sessions

Sing With Me or Baby Rhyme Time
These sessions are specifically 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 compliment an established program. The sessions involves 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. A very popular session for families that can be 30 or 45 minutes. 

Musical Shaker Making
This can be added to the Sing With Me session for toddlers. The children will create their own musical instruments with me that we will then use in the session and the children will be able to take home.  This would lengthen the time of the session from 45 minutes to 1 hour. 

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.
