Here at Hope Centre. We start at 9.30am for 45 minutes of music followed by morning tea and playtime before finishing at 11am. Sessions are held during the school term, at 8 Downer St, Lower Hutt.

Adults and caregivers participate in the session, in fact it’s vital they do so, because this encourages the children to enter into the actions and singing.  Through our music time we aim to encourage the parent/child bond, have young children appreciate music, improve motor skills, develop spatial awareness and more. We use instruments such as sticks and shakers, sing with and without music and move around.  We always include a song or two about God, as we like to encourage people to think about the God part of life.

mainly music The morning tea time provides an opportunity for caregivers to connect to others, building relationships and breaking the isolation that can sometimes be felt in this role. We want to honour parents for who they are and the role they have in life, so we make the most of celebrating occasions such as Mothers Day, Fathers Day and all things parent and child

Come along and join in with children, Mums, Dads, Grandparents - all welcome!
