Early Years Music Network
The Early Years Music Network meetings are an opportunity for adults who work with children age 0-5 years to share ideas for using music within different early years settings. We try out new songs, share ideas for using musical instruments and props, look at different musical games, different resources, and at ways in which musical activity can contribute to the delivery of the wider EYFS curriculum.
The network aims to engage with early years practitioners, teachers, childminders and adults working with young children in community and outreach programmes.
Further details on current Early Years Training and dates of our meeting can be found visiting our training link at the bottom of this page.
