The Baby Love Music Fun session dealt with parents engaging actively with their babies by combining developmental milestone activities with music movement and live singing. Meanwhile the Toddler MusicMagic sessionwas to help toddlers (1-4 years) develop vocal exploration and rhythmic patterns, create and improve movements,  and enhance memory, listening and moves through singing, dancing and singing.

The three-hour workshop was conducted by Jasmin Khor, the Asian Region Trainer for this programme founded by Melanie Maslin, a qualified music, drama and early childhood development educator from Australia. Many parents participated in a hands-on session with their children.

A talk on baby development and health was also given by Dr Adele Tan, a paediatrician from Lam Wah Ee hospital. A child psychologist, Anna Pease, was in attendance to help explain the reasons behind the type of training activities that were provided and how these contributed to the psychological well-being and holistic development of children.

Interested learners are able to pursue courses on child development as part of the liberal studies or psychology degree programme offered by the SFLS.
