Nursery and Pre-school Classes
Baby Music and Play Sessions are aimed at children from newborn to when the children are more mobile and less likely to remain in one place without quite a bit of persuasion!
Toddler Music and Play Sessions are aimed at children who are more mobile and can engage for up to 20 minutes when presented with a variety of activities.
Pre-schooler Music and Play Sessions are aimed at children aged 3 and over, and include role-play activities as well as music.
There is no strict criteria for each group based around the age, but I can negotiate with you based on the abilities of the child.
How the classes work
The classes for the younger children operate in a similar way to toddler music groups. There is a Hello and Goodbye song, with a number of songs in between based around a theme. I have French-speaking puppets, a bubble machine, and relevant toys and activities to increase the fun.
For the older children, there are games and activities to accompany the songs, and interactive story-telling, involving dress-up for each topic. For example, The Three Little Pigs, We're going on a Bear Hunt, for the animals topic.
Nursery staff are expected to accompany the children and join in with the activities.
