In 2019, Sing&Grow conducted a national evaluation project in partnership with Queensland University of Technology. This study makes an important contribution to the existing Sing&Grow evidence base. It demonstrates, for the first time, significant improvements in children’s cognitive self-regulation over time, as reported by parents and carers, with important implications for children's school readiness. For the first time, the study also documents pre- to post-intervention improvements in parent and carer use of music at home and self-efficacy in discipline and play, two areas with strong ties to Sing&Grow key parenting messages.
