Tapping into the notion that exposure to music at a young age can influence child development and later abilities in fields like math and language, Making Rainbows created a team of qualified facilitators and bring their unique classes to different areas of Australia. The multi-sensory programme makes use of scarves, rainbow parachutes and ribbons, as well as hand-held instruments, therapy balls, sand, water and bubbles, among others. Children can participate by exploring the spacial relations, singing and playing. Two different types of classes are available, one focused on the bond between the parent and a small baby, and the other welcoming children of mixed ages to promote family-style learning.
