Natalie Duncan, who was until recently a Senior Business Development Manager, has become the latest to join the successful Musical Minis franchise, which was established in 1989 by Karen Sherr.
Natalie has a young daughter called Daisy whose development has inspired her to take up a new career working with children. She will be continuing the Musical Minis franchise which first came to the South East Essex area in 2001. Since then over 2,000 children in the area have benefitted from the Musical Minis programme.
Karen Sherr, founder of Musical Minis commented “The interactive programme, which uses a variety of songs, music, instruments and puppets, is structured to help babies, toddlers and children improve their co-ordination, enhance their listening skills as well as develop their social and communication skills”. However, Karen believes that the development of such skills is not the only reason children should attend. “Fun, fun and more fun is what Musical Minis is all about. The sessions are structured in such a way that encourages children to discover sounds, explore instruments, mimic actions and learn to share and make friends in a relaxed group setting.
” Natalie is confident about her new business venture. "Coming from a large family with many cousins all younger than me, nieces and godchildren I have always enjoyed being around young children helping them to learn and playing with them. I have already received a number of enquiries from parents, who have understood the benefits of the programme, wishing to attend sessions. Children and babies respond naturally to music and the sessions are designed in such a way to encourage early communication; promoting confident, sociable and creative children.”
Natalie is starting classes in June 2016 in Benfleet, Billericay, Canvey Island, Corringham and Eastwood and has plans to set up classes throughout the region.
Musical Minis will also offer birthday party packages as well as regular or one-off sessions in nurseries and pre-schools. In addition, Natalie is interested in carrying out contract work at Children Centres and Nurseries.
