The Aims of Music One2One

 The primary aim of Music One2One was to raise the quality of caring for under-two-year-olds by encouraging developmentally appropriate one-to-one, playful musical activity between carers and their babies and toddlers. The project intended to arrive at recommendations and practical suggestions for music in the upbringing of very young children. The ideas will be flexible and appropriate for use by a wide range of early childhood professionals and adaptable to existing early childhood and parenting support programmes. The final reporton this project is now available.
