At hey dee ho music we aim to provide babies, toddlers, preschool children and their parents or care givers an opportunity to have fun together sharing the pleasure of music. All activities in the musical program involve parents participating alongside children. The atmosphere is warm, friendly and non-threatening. No pressure to participate is placed on any child and minimal restriction is placed on children who spontaneously respond to the music. hey dee ho music is a family activity and younger siblings or grandparents are always welcomed.
The program includes music ranging from standard nursery rhymes to more contemporary songs such as those from The Wiggles and Hi 5. All activities are designed to stimulate childhood development. These include fine and gross motor skills, cognitive development, turn taking (important in the development of interactive social behaviour), spatial awareness, listening skills and more. Each term we introduce a different ‘focus’ – Our focuses are Auslan signing, multicultural language, “musical stories” where we teach the “sol fa” to encourage tuneful singing and spatial awareness.
Classes are available for parents and children or regular sessions are available at Early Learning Centres.
