Massage?   Music?  Yoga?   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 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 Baby Massage classes

I love Baby Massage, I am sad that it hadn’t been introduced to the UK when my babies were little.  It would have transformed my early mummy days and helped me move out of the dark PND days so much quicker.

I love watching babies and mummies fall deeper in love through gentle, positive touch, it really helps with bonding, and I am fascinated and in awe of the health benefits for little beans as it can really help with ♥  Teething ♥ Constipation ♥ Colic  ♥ Digestive issues 

I love that my baby massage classes are kind, gentle, relaxed,inclusive spaces that smell fantastic, and where we enjoy a hot drink (obviously a lidded cup) together and chat

I also love that I get positively giddy on all the Oxytocin (the love hormone) that is created. 

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.
