Isolation Sessions

Loopy Tunes Sessions for Whānau

Check out the online sessions we offered during our lockdown in 2021, here in NZ.

We are now in the Covid Protection Framework – Orange Light.

​We invite you to check out the videos below with your tamariki, especially if you are at home isolating with your whānau, or just playing it safe by spending more time at home.

Scroll down to check out our music and reading time and crafts. Feel free to share them with whānau and friends.
