Music Box is an exciting FREE parent and toddler class, which will encourage a joy of music from an early age, with lots of singing, moving and playing instruments. Your child will develop their intellectual, physical, social and emotional skills whilst using their creative energy to build confidence.

Here at Yarrells School we are passionate about music, believing every child should have the opportunity to sing, play and move throughout their whole school career.  Singing and playing music benefits a child’s whole learning development.
