About the project

Making music with your baby is a great way to help develop their brain and language skills, as well as offering a unique and fun bonding experience for you and your little one.

A Better Start Southend has teamed up with the Southend YMCA and local mums and dads to deliver Umbilical Chords; a weekly term-time music group for children aged 0-2 years of age within A Better Start Southend wards. 

Come along with your baby and make some memories at our exciting music sessions! Our groups are led by a qualified Early Years Practitioner and a Music Tutor, and you don’t need to have any previous knowledge or experience of music to get involved.

The project is booked in 6-week blocks and will run at the Eco Hub on:

Mondays - 12:30-14:00

Wednesdays - 13:00- 14:30
