A music and rhyme group for under 5s and their parents or care givers.
This is held at Christ Church on Tuesday mornings from 10:00am - 11:30am during term time.
The session starts with 30 minutes of music, followed by a children's picnic with drink and a biscuit. The children are then given time to enjoy playing with the large toys whilst the grown ups are treated to fresh coffee and home baked cakes. This is a special time of connection, making new friends and catching up whilst the little ones play.
The cost of the session is £3 per family and £1 for any extra adult.

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, rhythm, rhyme, and other music related activities with the participation of a parent or primary caregiver.
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 socialize 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.
