Babies and toddlers learn more in their first three years than in any other time of their lives, and the skills they develop; spacial awareness, cognitive knowledge, socialisation, fine and gross motor skills, visual understanding, cause and effect, listening and language form the building blocks for the rest of their lives.
Classes are age specific and carefully structured. Mini Jam features a mix of well known nursery rhymes and action songs. Children also have a hands on experience with our array of percussion instruments. Mini Jam not only helps your child develop a love of music it will also help children develop language, social, emotional and physical skills.
