Parent and Child Shared Learning Sessions

Music workshops provide a great opportunity for joint learning and bonding for parents and pre-school children. Working with Family Learning experts from several local authorities as well as with Children's Centre Managers and Outreach Workers Boogie Mites have developed a range of Shared Learning courses with a proven track record in engaging even the hardest to reach families.

We include a craft element in most courses, so that families can work together to create a 'Song Sack' of instruments and props to use at home, in conjuction with a Boogie Mites Parent CD pack, thereby improving the home learning environment and extending the value of the course.

Boogie Mites family learning courses are available as one-off 2 hour tasters or as 10-12 hour courses.
