Fully Licensed
Melody Movement Early Learning introduces children to dance and movement using the natural actions of the body such as running, walking, jumping, hopping, skipping and galloping. It is a structured syllabus to aid children’s physical development, coordination, spatial awareness, creativity and self-expression, working individually, with a partner, or as a group.
Melody Movement also introduces children to other fundamental curriculum learning skills such as counting, colour and shape recognition vocabulary and language skills. Melody Bear is the focal point of the pre-school syllabi and all her activities, stories, ideas and dreams can be told through dance and movement making classes a journey into the Magical World of Melody Bear.
