A research project was commissioned to evaluate the benefits of Boogie Mites Early Years Music Education Programmes. The aims of this project were to understand how participation in music making programmes can support children’s development in the prime areas of Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) (DfE, 2010); these being communication and language, personal social, emotional development and physical development. It also sought to investigate parental and practitioner perceptions of the programmes. This report presents the findings from three Boogie Mites programmes: Babies, Minis, and School Ready. It was designed in three phases. During phase one, data was gathered from focus groups with parents, telephone interviews with parents and practitioners about their experiences as they happened during participation in such programmes and retrospectively after the programmes had finished. During phase two, parental feedback forms and practitioners’ evaluation forms were explored which allowed a critical synthesis of practices and behaviours before and after the programmes. These forms enabled comparisons between and within the groups. Finally, the third phase of the project explored key stakeholders’ views on the programmes through analysis of existing feedback forms. This allowed the project to gain a holistic overview of the Boogie Mites programmes. Using qualitative and quantitative methods, the authors show evidence of how Boogie Mites Music Programmes can encourage development and increase parental and children’s confidence in the use of music at home and in the settings.
