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 Everyone! My Name is Kylie and Welcome to Maggie Moo Music Toowoomba!
I am very excited to be able to combine my two passions, teaching and music and bring the fun of Maggie Moo Music to our region. What a great way to start the day than Mooving and Grooving with friends. If you have any questions about our programs please contact me for a chat either via facebook or email.
Here is a little about me 😊
I am a qualified Early Childhood Teacher with over 25 years experience working with children of all ages. My last teaching position, before I had my third baby, was at a local private kindergarten and my favourite part of the day was always singing and dancing and getting messy with my Kindy Kids. I am deeply passionate about planting the early seeds in children's minds to enjoy and benefit from a lifelong love of music. There is so many benefits to introducing your child to music at a young age and at Maggie Moo we do this in a fun and engaging way that they don’t even know they are learning shh 😉
I am also a proud mum of three gorgeous kids who love music just as much as I do. We love dancing around the house singing Maggie Moo songs!
You might also know me from my local jewellery business Whispering Hearts Handstamped Jewellery ♥️
So grab your little one and come join Maggie Moo and Farmer Kylie for some musical and multisensory fun! We can't wait to meet you! 🐮 🎶 💕
Meet Miss Lea our wonderful Music Educator
Hi, my name is Leanne but most people call me Lea (rhymes with Lee) for short.
I am married to a wonderful husband & together we have two boys who are 7 & 4 years old.
A little about me :)
I enjoy seeing people smile.
I like dressing up & I love to laugh.
I take great delight in seeing others enjoying themselves!
I have worked in numerous industries over the years and by far the best jobs I have had are the ones working with horses, aged care & children.
In fact I still get to enjoy all three of these aspects in my life, as I own a beautiful horse who I enjoy spending time with, volunteer my time to run a weekly local playgroup near my home & fortunately thanks to Kylie, I now get to entertain children and the elderly through my role as an educator at Maggie Moo Music.
Currently I have enrolled in a short course to give me a better understanding of Autism, I am also learning Auslan (Australian Sign Language via Lisa Mills), hold a current Blue Card for working with children & am also a qualified Aged Carer.
I look forward to meeting so many new faces this year and also cannot wait to see familiar faces from last year.

Baby Moo is a music and sensory session aimed at babies from birth until they are confidently walking. The benefits of sensory activities and music for babies are scientifically proven. Every area of the brain is stimulated when babies engage in musical activity. Music helps develop communication and language skills, physical competence, social skills, creativity and imagination as well as being a lovely, fun to way to interact with your little one. There is something to learn in every Maggie Moo Music song as they have been developed by a team of early childhood education experts and professional musicians. At Baby Moo we use singing and age appropriate instruments and props. The exploration of sound, repetition of songs and activities such as keeping a steady beat will develop a lifelong love of music in your little one.
Mixed Moo: All ages up to 5yrs of age
These are great sessions for friends with children of different ages, or a joint sibling activity. We use singing, movement, games, sensory play, creative role play and instruments all set to the fantastic and original Moo songs. Exploring many of the areas of the Early Years Learning Framework, the children have so much fun, they don’t even realise they're learning. Mixed Moo is a fantastic class for developing personal and social skills as children interact with one another. All activities are appropriate according to ages and ability of the children in the group.
Early Learning Centres:
Music is an essential part of childrens development and our songs are positive, uplifting, fun and educational. As a Qualified Early Childhood Teacher with ample experience I am able to provide a high quality program which along with the Maggie Moo Music songs we are the perfect compliment to your kindergarten, prep, home 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 have various package deals to work with your budget. We also love working in with your programming so if you have a special event on we can come up with a musical adventure based on that theme/interest. Please contact Kylie for further details.
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.
Special nurturing sessions for children with special needs
Nurture with Moo is a session designed for children with Special Education Needs. These sessions are small and intimate to ensure your child is not overwhelmed in a new environment. These sessions are suitable for children of any age. Music is a powerful tool, it expresses and influences emotions, educates and entertains and assists with potential brain development, enhanced memory, improved literacy and language skills. We create a sensory-rich environment within our sessions and use a variety of props for the engagement and stimulation of your child. Parents and carers just love being part of a small caring group.
