A quick overview

Started in 1990, Mainly Music is a fun music group for parents or primary care givers to enjoy together with their young child. Throughout the morning, children develop gross and fine motor skills, language, imagination, mathematical and pre-reading skills as well as socialise with others. Each mainly music is associated with and is run by volunteers from a local church. Children are introduced to music, creativity and more, plus families given a chance to think about the God-part of life. Amazing to think that all this can be achieved in a loving, shared family environment.

The aim of Mainly Music

The aim of Mainly Music is to provide an environment where preschool children develop skills to enhance their preschool education, through the use of music-related activities with the participation of a parent or primary caregiver.
