About Music Therapy

Music therapy playgroup is a fun and developmentally stimulating program for children up to 5 years old, facilitated by a registered music therapist. Parents and children don’t have to be musical to attend, as the focus is on the children learning through involvement.

There are two music playgroups that run each Monday morning to ensure that the program is better able to meet the developmental needs of each child. Musical activities include music and movement, signing, instrumental play and relaxation.

There are a number of benefits to music playgroups, including:
  • Enhance early childhood development (Communication, Cognition, Motor planning, Sensory processing & Integration and Social development).
  • Nurture relationships between parent and child through musical play.
  • Give parents hands-on ideas for using music at home to stimulate, calm and interact with their baby or child.
