The end of January is set for the inaugural 'National Early Years Music Week' and over 12,000 children are already signed up to join in. From Monday 28th January to Friday 1st February, Rhythm Time founder and MD, Kathy Doolan and her team of 45 franchisees across the UK, will be leading the fun music activities for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers.
During this special week across the UK, Rhythm Time classes will be full of special activities as Kathy and her dedicated team celebrate the benefits of music for early years development.
"Many parents go along to classes for fun but are unaware of the long-term educational benefits that they provide. With the recent cuts in education funding, music is seen as an optional extra, and is always the first subject to be dropped. However, research shows that it’s the most important subject, having the power to unlock every child’s potential,” says Kathy Doolan, Founder of Rhythm Time.
Following national coverage in theDaily Mailand Primary Times, Kathy and her dedicated team are hoping to spread the message far and wide to get others enjoying the week’s activities. From Maraca Monday, Triangle Tuesday, Wood Block Wednesday, Tambourine Thursday, Fun Friday to Scarf Saturday; parents and carers are encouraged to join a local Rhythm Time class for free or dress in something yellow and share their musical efforts on social media using the hashtag #RTmusicweek.
“I’d like to thank our sponsors: LMS Music Supplies, NatWest, MusicBiz, Morton Michel, Fraser Brown Solicitors, HSBC, Babyled and Usborne. This is a not-for-profit endeavour and we wouldn’t be able to provide all the fun materials including, activity packs, samples & stickers for the children without their financial support,” adds Kathy.
