OneMusic Australia is giving back to the child care services who are largely 'doing the right thing' by arts and culture with their widespread embrace of music licensing.

OneMusic's free, downloadable colour poster can adorn any wall of ECEC services across the country - and provides an illustrated step by step guide to dance moves alongside the educative meaning behind the musical moves.

Musician, author, actor and darling of ABC Justine Clarke said

I don’t know about you, but I can’t imagine a world without music to listen to, books to read and art to cherish.
I know you'll all be willing to set an example for the little creators of tomorrow by doing the right thing for today's creators - just like me.

What you may not know is that as a child care service you probably need permission to use these creations in your business. This is not new. Copyright protection has been around a long, long time.

Licences for long day care providers are based on how many licensed places you have and works out at less than two cents a day per child.
