Child care & pre-kindy

Child’s Play Music’s incursions for child care centres and pre-kindy programs are fun, educational, and very affordable.  Nothing else compares to the excitement and learning of our hands-on music programs!

Contact us to book your incursion!

Anywhere in Perth or Mandurah – we come to you and there are no mileage fees or hidden costs.

These children are having the time of their lives – and the learning is obvious!  Your children can be learning like this too!

Read the full program outline

A child care incursion consists of two separate developmentally appropriate programs:

  1. A 25 minute free-play program for children 16 months to < 3 years.
  2. A 50 minute free-play and structured activity program for children 3-5 years.

“The whole session was great – very rewarding and developmentally stimulating … the orchestra session with the kindy-aged children was fantastic.” Read more child care centre testimonials …

Up to 30 children can take part in each section of the program – that’s 60 children – but if you have more children at your centre we can add extra sessions to meet your needs.

For pre-kindy programs we use the 50 minute program. We can do multiple sessions to cover all your groups, and up to 30 children can take part in each session.

We guarantee that we can keep your children focused and learning for the whole session.  Each program is carefully tailored to the age and development of the children and has awesome learning outcomes that link directly to the Early Years Learning Framework.

Child’s Play Music’s instruments are almost unbreakable – no need for you to worry about children mistreating them!  We build them tough so young children can explore them fully.  And they sound wonderful!

It’s more than just an incursion – you also receive two big booklets of follow-up music activities and instrument-making instructions, to extend and consolidate the children’s learning long after the incursion is over. And every child receives a certificate of achievement!

You can customise the incursion.

Got a theme you want us to work with? Maybe you would like a multicultural focus, or a special emphasis on recycling and sustainability.  Perhaps you are doing jungles or making your own instruments.  Whatever your focus, we can address it to help you meet your educational goals.

Free-flow programs for family days and celebrations.

Child’s Play Music is also perfect for your family day, fair day, or any centre celebration.  See our community events page for more information.

The video is of kindergarten children – what about our younger children?

Our instruments are easy to play, even for infants, but in the under three’s program we remove a few instruments that are too difficult for such young children – we want every child to experience success!  We set the drums up differently so that even the youngest child can access all the drums – even our massive bass drums.

We know you want a developmentally appropriate program for your youngest children, so their program is shorter and is focussed entirely on free play and exploration.  They will love it – and so will you!
