Early Childhood Programs and Price Guides
The All The Doo Dah Day Program has been specifically designed to meet all learning outcomes and practice principles of the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework for example improving the children’s social and emotional wellbeing (Outcome 3), helping children develop dispositions for learning such as confidence and creativity (Outcome 4) and helping children transfer/adapt their learning to different contexts. Music is becoming more and more recognised as an important tool for learning. Brain tests have revealed that music alters brain waves, making the brain more receptive to learning. Music can also support early literacy and numeracy as it helps children:
Become familiar with sound and rhythm patterns;
Learn language patterns, remember new words, stories;
Develop phonological and phonemic awareness;
Develop clear pronunciation;
Develop pathways in the brain for word processing.
Our main aim is for the program is to make learning music relevant to the children’s experiences and something that will help to improve their confidence, resilience and sense of wonder. Our program is designed to take into account the children’s emerging interests and to improve their social, emotional and physical wellbeing. Our programs incorporate literacy and numeracy concepts as well as work on gross and fine motor skills. A key to the program is engendering a sense of community and respect for diversity.
All the Doo Dah Day offers a variety of programs tailored to the tastes of the children. Children will learn songs, play instruments, learn dances, tell their own stories and learn new concepts inspired by their interests.
Educators can choose from the following programs. Price ranges are listed below as a guide only. Generous discounts are applied for bookings for multiple groups or sessions, and we can let you know exact costs upon enquiry. We are happy to tailor any solution to your budget and needs and are happy to rotate between groups or condense programs into shorter timeframes. Just ask!
