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.

About Mainly Music

Young children and their caregivers enjoying music, rhyme, rhythm, creative dance and more.

Preschool children developing skills – co-ordination, fine motor movements, large motor movements, social interaction, appreciation of music and musical styles, language development.

Providing children with a structured environment and then a time of free play.

Bringing adult and child together for a time of safe interaction, and in doing so, teaching adults rhymes and songs that can be used at home to help with cleaning up, colours, counting, and more.

An opportunity for parents to network with other parents of pre-school-age children.

Opportunities for families to be helped – with practical needs such as meals, transport, etc.

Celebration of special occasions (such as Easter, Christmas, Mothers' Day, etc). Mainly Music is an opportunity for adults and children to build memories and spend time together, sharing special time with each other.
