FAQ

This small group program is up to 4 participants and works to support children 3.5-5 years of age.

The group is structured similarly each week to set up children for success. It will include greeting songs to practice social engagement with others, movement activities for proprioception and coordination, instrument play for fine and gross motor development, song singing to learn concepts and practice reciprocal communication, and relaxation/sensory activities to support emotional and attentional regulation.

Creative arts therapies like music therapy can support your child to learn strategies and skills in a fun way, moving away from the ‘practitioner as expert’ model. It empowers you as a caregiver to join in and engage your child so you can learn to understand their needs through creative interactions and develop new ways to support them and help them to grow.

This group is tailored to children with additional needs and is an understanding and supportive environment. We understand that everyone learns at their own pace.
