At Grow With Music, we have a close-working group of highly committed Suzuki Music educators who value the importance of ongoing shared collaboration and co-operation in upholding the Suzuki Philosophy while drawing on the principles, practices and outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (COAG, 2009). We appreciate the current emphasis on the provision of quality service of education and care in the early years as a result of the recent government initiative to improve current practices.Through ongoing mentorship and professional inquiry, we strive to continually provide a fresh, dynamic and lively practice for our children and families in the name of the Philosophy of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki while drawing on the principles, practices and outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (COAG, 2009).
