York - children

Established in 1996, Kiddleydivey provides innovative, fun-filled music sessions that wholly complement the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. The singing, dancing and movement that we incorporate into our sessions will encourage your children to learn a range of skills enhancing their further development: socialisation, imagination and fine and gross motor control.

All of the classes have been created by a music therapist and we are constantly researching and developing the musical activities to ensure that they remain at the highest standard. We use a variety of wonderful puppets, teddy bears, colourful props and original songs, to ensure that the sessions are fun, lively and entertaining for the children.

We always attempt to use a variety of themes in our sessions; these can increase the children’s understanding of musical features and also, aid their recognition of creatures and activities in natural surroundings, such as the farm, the home, bath-time and the jungle. Every week is different!

My name is Charlotte Yandell . I am a relatively new addition to the Kiddleydivey family; however, I am extremely excited to begin offering music sessions in York and the surrounding area. A keen singer, pianist and violinist, I graduated from the University of Hull in 2017 with a BA in Music. Throughout my time at Hull, I thoroughly enjoyed studying modules in the Psychology of Music Performance and the Psychology of Music and Emotion, particularly focusing on clinical psychological trials which established the benefits of nursery rhymes and their crucial impact on early child development. I moved to York in 2017 and began studying a Masters in Music (Music Psychology). During my MA programme, I continued to concentrate on the beneficial aspects of music, further analysing the effects of music on children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders and William’s Syndrome. Due to this thorough research, I feel that I am particularly aware of the unique and powerful influence that music has upon a child’s development; I would love to highlight this with a Kiddleydivey music session in your setting!
