The aim of the PME group - preschool music education - is to encourage knowledge of musical growth and education of young children. The mission of the group: to study, to discuss and to exchange our work in early childhood music education with an emphasis on research connected to practice resulting in workable outcomes. We aim to disseminate knowledge representing our study efforts as well as to disseminate knowledge accumulated through practice.

Het VMEcentrum is een muziekeducatieve instelling die als doel heeft de muzikale ontwikkeling van jonge kinderen te stimuleren. Daarbij leggen wij de nadruk op het bevorderen van het zingen. Wij hebben een duidelijke pedagogische visie om de kinderen structuur en veiligheid te bieden zodat zij zich vrij voelen om zich muzikaal te kunnen uiten.
