AN innovative music program at Hamilton Baptist Church has begun its fifth year of operation.
The program, called ‘mainly music’ is for children aged 0-5 years and their parents, grandparents and carers.
Reverend Trevor Walmsley said the program had proved very popular with families, some who had been involved since its inception in 2010.
“During the musical activities, the children develop many co-ordination and listening skills, while they participate in the actions of vibrant songs,” Rev Walmsley said.
“They gradually become more confident as they interact with other children and adults.
“Grandparents and parents attend and join in the friendly atmosphere.
“Indeed, parental involvement with the children is essential to the effectiveness of the program.”
