“It teaches musical appreciation”

Mini Maestros in Childcare Centres and Kindergartens

The Mini Maestros curriculum is entirely consistent with the Nurturing Early Learners curriculum framework and works effectively to deliver the outcomes that the Framework seeks.

Mini Maestros teachers create a welcoming, inclusive classroom environment where children's contributions are valued and encouraged. Our teachers provide worthwhile, challenging experiences for children using a range of teaching strategies such as:

  • Modelling and demonstration
  • Open-ended questioning
  • Speculating
  • Explaining
  • Engaging in shared thinking and problem solving
  • Planning for intentional teaching and knowledge building

The Mini Maestros program is designed for the holistic development of children. The program addresses the six learning areas identified by Nurturing Early Learners, namely:

  • Aesthetics and Creative Expression
  • Discovery of the World
  • Language and Literacy
  • Motor Skills Development
  • Numeracy
  • Social and Emotional Development

A Mini Maestros teacher can come each week or fortnight to run classes at your centre. We are also available to present one-off sessions and concerts.

Our teachers provide all of the equipment including the instruments, puppets and props that we use in our private groups.

We can provide sessions in the morning or the afternoon at a time that suits your routine.

In the babies' room we usually suggest a 20 to 30 minute session, depending on the age of the babies in the room.

In the 2 year old room we suggest a 30 minute session.

In the 3 year old room we recommend a 30 to 45 minute session.

In the 4 year old room we recommend a 30 to 45 minute session.
