Music?  Sensory Play?  Heuristic Play?

At Little Beans classes, you don’t have to choose, because my classes are a unique, mindfully created, blend of all these wonderful things. 

I promise you that I will always place your little bean’s cognitive, emotional, social, physical and linguisitic development at the very heart of everything I create so you can relax, experience and enjoy precious times, making memories together

Why I’ll always love music

I love music because it makes my heart sing, my toes tap and it makes me smile

I love music because it is the most useful yet often under-valued by many, tool in my early years teaching repertoire and it’s incredible impact on all our emotional well-being.

Music makes little beans into natural, intuitive singers and dancers, responding eloquently to complex rhythms and they know if it makes them feel happy or sad

At some point many of us suppress these feelings/abilities.  We feel embarrassed by the emotions that music provokes and we believe the narrative that we can’t all sing, we can’t all dance.

In my world that is simply not true.  Music is vital to all our emotional well being and ongoing mental health.  As we sing, the body naturally produces feel good endorphins so the world seems sparklier, brighter and the deeper breathing boosts our immune systems, so what are you waiting for?  Just listen to your heart and sing

Why I love multi age classes

I love multi age classes, being in a room full of babies, toddlers, preschoolers, mums, dads, grandparents.  It is special and the little beans thrive in this environment.  The smallest ones gaze longingly at the bigger ones who can jump, twirl and swirl whilst the bigger ones are given opportunities to support their social and emotional development.   

Love really is all around us

 

 

You know your baby better than anyone else and you know what sort of class you would like to be part of.

I love and am very proud that I am able to offer a wide range of classes at Little Beans and I really believe there is something for everyone.

I promise you that every single activity has been purposely chosen as the best way of supporting a specific element of your little bean’s development, be it cognitive, physical, emotional, social, creative or linguistic and classes support the EYFS.

I’ve identified age ranges just for guidance only as every little bean is unique and develops at their own pace.

DISCOVERY BEANS : STAGE 1

6 weeks – confidently sitting unaided

Discovery Beans Stage 1 is a gentle, nurturing time for tiny babies and new mummies.  It combines elements of all my favourite things, music, baby massage, sensory play and baby yoga, to create a class that is relaxed, full of happiness and creativity.

This multi sensory class is stimulating but never over stimulating.  It is a time to sing, play peek a boo, watch bubbles, dance, listen, meet other mums, enjoy Theme Time playtime before finishing with a snuggly, gentle massage & sleepy cuddle with your baby.

Included in this class is membership of closed facebook/whatsapp groups

 

 

DISCOVERY BEANS : Stage 2

Confidently sitting – very early toddling

As your baby becomes increasingly independent this very relaxed and joyful class bundles music, song, movement, baby yoga, sensory and heuristic play into a gorgeous,multi sensory rich, development class that you and your baby will love and look forward too every week

It is jammed packed full of happiness, stretches, bounces, rolls, dances and wriggles as little beans develop both their gross and fine motor skills, enjoy creating some priceless memories together during theme time, wonder at the beautiful, bespoke sensory parachutes, before enjoying a lovely cuddly snuggle together.

 

 

MUSIC BEANS

This multi age class has a really joyful, high energy, family vibe

It combines music, sensory play, movement and mindfulness.  It is crammed full of colour, energy and Tilly, Sam, Bertie and Poppy bean take it in turns to leap out of the bag
