Raukatauri’s fun-filled group therapy sessions use musical activities to develop children’s communication, socialisation, motor and cognitive skills.  Here is what some of our parents have said:

"(My child) loves coming and would enjoy more songs if there was more time. She says “more!” every time we get in the car!"

"Excellent content. Lots of fun!"

"This class is great. I can clearly see the improvements of the children!"
