Our parish joins 500 mainly music groups throughout the world where parents and caregivers join their young children for a half hour of interactive music and movement using rhyme, rhythm and music related activities. Children learn and develop gross and fine motor skills, language, imagination, maths and pre reading skills. The session is followed by morning tea and free play during which time adults are served a yummy morning tea and have an opportunity to meet other parents and caregivers and build positive networks of support. We are able to promote the message of the gospel by our love, care and nurture of young families. For further information please contact the Rev’d Anne Neville (02 6362 5349)
or Sharon Chown (02 6360 0293).
