Music is a language we all speak. Singing to your baby provides a wonderful opportunity for early communication, as well as bonding and attachment. Our Baby Loves session is a social music group for babies up to 18 months of age (pre-walkers). We use live music and fun movement activities that focus on developmental skills. Through these sessions, you will learn about music’s impact on brain development and gain ideas that you can try with your baby at home.
The Baby Loves group also provides a great social opportunity to meet other caregivers and babies and interact through music and play. Whether it be action songs, parachute play, dancing with rainbow ribbons or drumming songs, you know you will be engaging in meaningful musical experiences with your child.
Here are 3 easy steps to join our music groups:
- Choose your group program by selecting the appropriate group for your child’s age;
- Book a casual session to see if your child(ren) enjoys and benefits from the music groups;
- After your first session, decide whether you’d like to enrol for the rest of the term, or continue booking in on a casual basis.
- To book in for the term, speak to your friendly facilitator or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Our music groups are facilitated by professional educators, music therapists or allied health assistants who are also musicians and accompany themselves on guitar.
Each session runs approximately 45 minutes.
Music is a language we all speak. Giving children the time and space to explore music with you and express themselves through song is an invaluable way for them to learn social skills and communication. Throw movement and instrument play into the mix and it’s a total brain massage for their developing minds!

Our music sessions are a fun and relaxed place to be and we understand that you want to capture your child in action, however, we aim to create a child-safe environment and respect the privacy of children and their families. Photography or video recordings are not permitted in the sessions, if you’d like to take photos of your child, this can be done at the beginning or the end of the session and photographs should be limited to just your child or family members.
We allow participants who miss a class to make up that class, dependent upon availability and if notice is given more than 24 hours before the session.
