Through the sharing of both traditional and non-traditional children’s songs, Sing&Grow provides families with a safe space to interact in new and positive ways, to increase their confidence to use music and play at home, and to learn new ways to support child development. Services encourage children and parents together to explore percussion instruments, drums, ribbons, balls and parachutes in a developmentally stimulating, fun and musical environment.
