The Music Room

Focus on: Developing Musical & Cognitive skills

A 45 min learning session filled with Songs, Rhymes, Instrument & Sensory Play, Movement & Dance led by our talented Hive musicians & singers.


Kindermusik is an AWARD WINNING research based programme presented by staff trained in early childhood development proven to increase the language, social and cognitive skills of your child.

Kindermusik classes aim to build all the skills your child needs to become a confident and successful learner for life. Harnessing the scientifically proven power of music to engage all the areas of the brain, these focused music classes will suit all learning styles from the introverted observer to the expressive active learner.

Activities are designed to encourage multisensory learning, which employs and integrates several senses at once, stimulating multiple areas of the brain.

Our Music classes are available for:
• 10 mths – 24 mths (younger siblings welcome)

The Play Room is a unique programme created by Hive to engage babies, toddlers and their carers in cleverly crafted educational play. With a fun new theme each week, families can look forward to original and surprising learning opportunities.

Our highly trained and talented staff host a vibrant gathering time with a focus on language and literacy through books, rhymes and songs. They use instruments, group sensory play and movement to meet in joyful learning.

Afterwards, during your rotating playtime, you can make those essential connections with other parents over barista made coffee and hot drinks (yes the coffee is good and delivered straight to your classroom!). Creative sensory and messy play is offered alongside opportunities to climb, balance, swing and build, all in a beautiful, safe and accepting environment.

The Music Room or the Play Room 

Which class is best suited to your child?

4 Benefits of our Music Classes

• Fun and focused, our dedicated music classes are a full 45 minutes of musical learning that will never be forgotten. Every part of the brain is engaged so that all styles of learning are satisfied from our visual observer learners to our most outgoing kinaesthetic (moving) learners.

• We slow down, and, using deliberate repetition of songs and expansion of activities over the 5 weeks of each theme, this programme allows mastery of skills appropriate to the age group. You will be amazed to see your child remember and purposefully join in repeated activities.

• We create enthusiastic learners. The strategies they gain to learn music concepts in class will make it easier for them to learn all their lives as they begin to see learning as simple and fun. 

• You will bond with your child, learn the basics of child development so you know why and how to keep up the learning at home. Our classes create a village of adults you can connect with week after week who share your dedication and enjoyment of the parenting journey.

4 Benefits of our Play Classes

• Socialisation and resilience are the focus of these weekly themed classes. Our activities use every sense to stimulate and engage you and your child and connect through play.

• Creative play has a short, fun, group time that uses colour, movement, and song. Children learn that new is fun and will develop confidence when presented with new environments.

• We introduce literacy and give opportunities for parents to understand their child’s development with a weekly learning focus.

• The class includes a themed purposeful play time where you can sip coffee, chat to new friends, and take time to bond with your child. Teachers will guide you into how and why play is purposeful. Children will learn to engage for longer periods of independent play at home because parents empower them in class by modelling purposeful play.
