Adventurers

Adventurers is a unique programme of creative intervention that reaches the most vulnerable families in our community that may not otherwise have access to similar support services.

About

Working in partnership with Radstock Children’s Centre and the local Health Visitor Team, this referral-only programme has been carefully designed to support positive attachment and family cohesion, as well as supporting early years development, in particular: speech and language.

Each programme is tailor-made to fit specific family interests/issues/needs, supporting a small cohort of families each term. This enables us to really focus on equipping families with the skills and confidence to continue supporting their child’s development at home.

We use music as a tool to develop speech and language, memory and recall, physical development, coordination, social skills and literacy and numeracy skills. Our activities also help to foster better family relationships and provide opportunities for new parents to develop friendships and build social networks

What people say about Adventurers

Testimonials

Luke has really enjoyed the sessions both in person and online. This has helped him to learn to sit and take part in group activities and associating his toys with the props used in the video calls. He really enjoys to sing and is able to explain to me through actions, toys and now verbally what songs he wants to sing together. It’s been lovely getting to know Esther and Clara.

Participant Adventurers

What happens in pregnancy and the early years of a child’s life has a profound impact on the rest of his or her life. The biggest influence on children’s outcomes is from primary caregivers. Improving experiences in the early years is central to build healthy relationships, communication and language, social and emotional development and physical health. The Adventurers group has greatly supported these aspects through fun, nurturing child/parent interactions, music and stories. We have worked closely with the Evolve team over the last 18 months, so families can easily access this group and support their child’s development. The feedback has been really positive and we hope to continue the wonderful work the Evolve team have managed to achieve, so children are equipped for life no matter what their background or family circumstances

Adventurers is a smaller group, which allows us to work more directly with young children and their families in order to give them the support they need. Our One-to-one provision with families allows us to work with them in a more focussed way, enabling us to tailor our sessions to the needs of the family

Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Evolve Music has been supporting vulnerable families through 1-on-1 online provision. This is an extension of our early intervention programme that has enabled us to engage with families who may not otherwise have been able to access our Adventurers programme due to parents’ own anxieties or barriers around accessibility and/or transport. 

We have been able to successfully adapt our delivery methods and activities to support music-making online, providing a lifeline for many families that have been disproportionately impacted by Covid-19. This programme has helped to develop vital support networks and reduced social isolation at an extremely difficult time for many families.

What people say about Adventurers 1-on1

Testimonials

We have been taking part in 1:1 sensory sessions online via zoom with Evolve music. It has been a lovely way to learn new songs and ways to interact with my baby, including using Makaton, during a difficult time. It has given us great prop ideas to go along with actions. I love learning new songs and ideas I can take away to entertain my daughter and help her learn. The sessions also give us dedicated time as a family to bond with baby uninterrupted. It's great that everyone can join in. Esther has been amazing at adapting what to do based on my babies age, attention span and her mood on the day. She takes a tricky situation, such as trying to keep babies attention on a screen, and makes the most of it. We very much enjoy our sessions and look forward to doing more in the future.
