Toowoomba born and raised Letitia Olsen is returning to her hometown this April, and bringing Brisbane’s popular music, movement and sensory classes Making Rainbows with her.
At the age of 19, Letitia moved to Mackay and then Brisbane to explore and gain experience. While she enjoyed many aspects of her life outside Toowoomba she always missed home.
“Toowoomba is a fantastic place to live. I love that I can go to a shopping centre and automatically see someone that I know. It is such a friendly and laid back place where people are usually up for a chat,” she said.
Letitia is returning to Toowoomba to provide families with access to Brisbane’s music, movement, and sensory classes for kids.
“I am confident Making Rainbows will provide families with fun and educational opportunities for their little ones each week. The classes aim to educate parents about the importance and value of early learning. Each class has fantastic activities that will help infants and children practice skills and work on their developmental milestones.”
Making Rainbows is an educational music, movement and sensory play program for children from birth to five years old. The research focused curriculum is designed to help families develop a deeper bond with their child.
Making Rainbows now offers 36 classes each week in 17 locations around Brisbane. The classes are based on research that shows strong links between exposure to movement, singing and playing with young children and their future developmental success.
The program aims to enhance the child’s learning and further develop their language, motor skills, vision, memory, and emotional awareness. This is all done through a fun community oriented environment for parent and caregivers.
