National Early Years Music Week will run from the end of January 2019 and Rhythm Time’s new initiative already has over 12,000 children signed up to participate in the event
From social franchises being launched to champion important causes to franchisors raising money for charities, franchises are hardly strangers to pushing for change wherever needed. Now, Rhythm Time, the franchise offering music classes for early years’ development franchise, has become the latest one to do so.
The franchisor has announced that it will launch the initiative National Early Years Music Week in the beginning of 2019. The event will run from Monday January 28 to Friday February 1 to spread the gospel about how singing and making music can benefit children and help them develop. So far, an impressive 12,000 children have already been signed up to participate in the event.
Commenting on the initiative, Kathy Doolan, founder of Rhythm Time, said: “In the last ten years, research has proven that music-making and singing with babies and toddlers is fundamental to their development. Many parents go along to classes for fun but are unaware of the long-term educational benefits that they provide. With the recent cuts in education funding, music is seen as an optional extra and is always the first subject to be dropped. However, research shows that it’s the most important subject, having the power to unlock every child’s potential.”
No wonder Rhythm Time’s franchisees are singing their hearts out about this issue.
