NYMAZ Early Years Resources Library

NYMAZ have designed an Early Years Resources Library for members of its Early Years Music Network, including specially compiled ‘kits’ full of instruments, puppets and other materials perfect for music activities with 0-5 year-olds.

Each kit may be borrowed by Network members for up to three weeks at a time, for FREE. This gives members the opportunity to try out a range of instruments and materials in their settings before making the decision to buy their own. See below for the contents of each of the kits, which come in a plastic box complete with top tips and ideas, care advice, and a note book for sharing ideas with future borrowers.

Kits can be collected from either Whitby or Harrogate during usual office hours. If you would like to borrow one of our Early Years Resources Kits, please e-mail grace@nymaz.org.uk for more details.
