Having worked in early childhood since 1999, her passion and devotion to supporting the wellbeing of children, families, teachers and schools is obvious as soon as you meet her.

It was through her desire to provide her own son, Isaac, with an ideal learning environment both at home and in the world – one that focused on parent/child connections and family wellbeing –that Kids in Harmony was born. 

Kerry is committed to encouraging a sense of self-belief in children and their families and is proud to be part of such a positive service to her community having supported over 20 000 families in the past 17 years.  Her mission is to support parents, teachers and schools to nurture resilient, kind and connected children through music, values, mindset and mindfulness education.

Lucia Gosling

Lucia was the original co-creator of the Kids in Harmony program Music and Life skills from July 2003 to July 2004 – Since July 2004 Kids in Harmony has been reprogrammed as a Music and Values Education program.

Due to the health of Lucia’s son  in 2003, Lu chose to be with her family and left Kids in Harmony in June 2004 in the capable hands of Kerry.  Lucia is the co-owner of Arties Music and still plays a musical advisory role in the Kids in Harmony program and continues to give support to the centre.

Lucia and her husband Wayne were instrumental in the birth of Kids in Harmony and it was the original “funky purple shed” behind Arties Music that gave Kids in Harmony its original home and foundation.
