Maggie Moo Music is a great fun and interactive regular music session for 0 to 5 year old children and their parents, grandparents or carers too, where the children sing, dance and play. Music is an essential part of every child's development and the 125 original Moo Music songs used at the sessions are positive, uplifting, fun and educational. The interactive sessions will help your child gain confidence and develop memory, language and coordination skills in an exciting, enjoyable and multi-sensory way. It's a great way to make new friends - both for the children and the adults too!
A bit about us...
Hi and Welcome to Maggie Moo Music (North Brisbane). We are so excited to start sessions with you.
My name is Karlien, I am originally from South Africa, we moved here 10 years ago and have made Australia our home, since immigrating with my husband we have grown our little family, with 2 beautiful children, the 1st Gabrielle is 5 years and then we have little Juandre, he is now 1. My children are my world, I opened a Family Daycare when Gabrielle was just 10 months old and have since gotten my Diploma in Early Childhood. I love children and as an Early childhood Educator am a firm believer that these early years are the most important years of a child's life, they shape our little one for their future.
Moo musical sessions are designed for your little learner to learn through play! It is also a lovely bonding session between Mum/Dad/Grandparents/Carer and baby/toddler. We often get so lost in technology that we forget how to bond, these Musical sessions are the perfect opportunity to have some one on one time with your children. Children thrive on love and attention. Not only do we bond, the children also have the opportunity to develop the gross motor skills, fine motor skills, cognitive skills, language and social skills. It is also a great way for parents to develop their social skills and form new friendships with other parents.
At Mixed Moo we use singing, movement, dancing, games, sensory play, creative role play, and musical instruments, all set to the fantastic and original Moo songs.
All of our songs have been written in line with the EYLF and there is something to learn in every song both physically and mentally.
We start each session with the same Good morning song and end with our Goodbye song. During these songs, we use some sign language and basic actions to help build on our little one's memories so they know when the session is about to start or when it is ending.
We use a wide range of props to stimulate those senses including bubbles, parachutes, puppets, dancing ribbons and so much more!
Repetition is key to your little ones learning so we keep the beginning and endings of our sessions the same while giving them a new experience in the middle of the session each week.
Mixed Moo is a fantastic session for siblings to attend together.
Ages 6 weeks – 14 Months or till confidently walking
Our Baby Moo sessions are relaxed, lively and welcoming. You and your baby will enjoy a sensory-rich environment with the flexibility to have a chat and meet some other mums/carers.
Our sessions provide bonding activities as well as songs to make you laugh. Your little one will be having fun while working on their development.
The benefits of music for babies are scientifically proven that every area of the brain is stimulated when babies engage in a musical activity. Music helps develop communication and language skills, physical competence, social skills, creativity and imagination as well as being a lovely fun way to interact and bond with your little one.
We team our wonderful music with sensory props and age appropriate musical instruments to make Baby Moo a beautiful sensory experience for you and your baby.
As with our Mixed Moo sessions we start and end our sessions with the same Good morning and Good bye songs, helping to build on those memories.
After a few sessions you will see your little ones face light up as they hear that Good morning song, knowing where they are and what experience they are about to have.
Some great friendships have developed and blossomed in our Baby sessions as well as the beautiful bonding between parent and baby.
Our Messy Moo sessions are developed especially for 6 months – 5 years old. These sessions involve messy, sensory, craft stations to promote sensory explorations, foster imagination, enhance colour recognition, encourage experiments and create positive attitudes towards new experiences. Most importantly children get to explore in conjunction with our educational Moo Music, in which further enhances the learning experience! Our sessions are child-led, meaning they can explore the stations at their own pace, however parent participation/supervision is still needed during the session.
A special session shared with the elderly
Our Grand Moo Music sessions are designed to delight both young moovers and the elderly. This is an opportunity to bring everyone together for music, fun, laughter and an educational sensory experience. The benefits of our elderly population engaging with young children are well known to professionals working with the elderly and the young. When music is added to the equation a beautiful result is created.
Birthday parties or special events
A Moo Doo is a fantastic way of celebrating a birthday whatever age your child is. It can be in your home or in a public hall and you can have just a few friends or a whole bunch of people. Moo Doos are great for any event where children need entertaining. A Moo Doo can be an event in its own right and can also be part of another event or party, from school fetes, christenings, adult celebrations to weddings!
The Music session that comes to yoo!
If you're part of a Mothers’ group who meet regularly maybe Maggie Moo music could be part of your catch up? We tailor the session to the children’s ages and bring everything we need to create a truly rewarding session in your home or play centre. It's a great way to experience Maggie Moo Music together! We set up and clear up so it’s a no hassle experience for the Host.
Early Learning Centres
Music is an essential part of childrens development and our songs are positive, uplifting, fun and educational.
The Maggie Moo Music songs and sessions are a perfect compliment to your pre-school, day care or Early Learning Centre.
Maggie Moo Music is designed to cater to children from 6 weeks to 5 years old, with three different target age levels, Baby Moo (babies), Mini Moo (toddlers) and Maxi Moo (Preschool/ Kindergarten).
Maggie Moo Music is based around six loveable farmyard characters; Maggie Moo, Ollie Oink, Henry Horse, Doris Duck, Holly Hen and Barry Baa. The songs provide children with the opportunity to sing, dance, play games, copy actions and explore different instruments and materials while engaging in a whole range of developmental skills such as language, cognition, co-ordination plus gross motor, fine motor, sensory and visual.
As a director it can be challenging finding relevant extra curricular programmes that link children’s activities and experiences with the Early Years Learning Framework. We understand that and can reassure you that Maggie Moo Music ticks the boxes. We suggest an initial trial session so that you may experience the value these sessions could bring to the children on your centre.
Maggie Moo Music has been created by an exceptional team of professional songwriters and education experts, to ensure that our songs work alongside the EYLF. Each and every song can be linked back to the Belonging, Being and Becoming principles within the Framework.
