Song and Sensory | The Possums Clinic
Song and Sensory

What does your child’s sensory environment sound, feel, taste and smell like? Are you looking for creative ways to nourish your child’s sensory development?

Song and Sensory is an exciting new initiative for babies, toddlers and young children! (And a great way to meet other parents, too.)

Our Song and Sensory programs promote your child’s sensory development through the use of music. Dr Jeanette Kennelly is an experienced paediatric music therapist providing services as part of the Possums Learning and Development team.

What we do in Song and Sensory is different.

Our programs are framed by both the Possums evidence-base and research in the areas of infant-directed singing and paediatric music therapy. We invite parents to “find their voice” and use this unique and empowering tool to engage with their child and co-create a rich sensory experience. Using live music-making, our programs include:

  • How to engage musically with your child and create voice-body connection through song (0-6 months, 6-12 months, 1-2 years)
  • Sensory development opportunities for your child through musical play, promoting motor, cognitive, language, emotional and social skills (all age groups: 0-4yrs)
  • Interactive singing with your child to engage the senses and support self-regulation (all age groups: 0-4 years)

Come join in the fun and try out one of our Song and Sensory music therapy programs! Sessions are conducted in 8 week blocks during the school year and due to space availability, bookings are advised. Casual fee for all groups: $24 per child or $36 per family (eg twins) if places available, please contact Possums to make an enquiry. Details regarding fees for term bookings can be found on our Clinic's Fees page. No refunds or makeups available and bookings are non-transferable. Please note full payment of fee confirms your place and bookings will be made on a first come basis.
