I had my first session with Turtle Tots today at a glorious new facility in Cheddar. The little ones absolutely adored it, and so did I. As a swimmer and former lifeguard I can say that it is absolutely the kind of introduction to water I want my children to have. Joyous, practical and confidence boosting. We can’t wait for the next installment.
I am very happy to now be able to offer “Cuddle & Bounce” for newborn-pulling up. Click here for the full class description.
The class will be held 9am – 10am Fridays at Wells Cricket Club (near Tree House Nursery BA5) beginning Friday 16th August. It is roughly a 40 minute session with plenty of time for arriving, feeding, changing etc. The building is on one level with changing and toilet facilities and room to park buggies.
Classes run in 4 weekly sessions and digital @Home Materials including all songs and stories accompany each class so you can continue your musical journey at home. You are welcome to come for a free taster class before signing up.
Please bring your baby’s special blanket to lie them on if you have one.
To register and for more information please contact me.

I met the most amazing woman in the park yesterday. When she found out I teach Kindermusik she started to tell me about her sons, her life with them and their lives with music. It was a huge testament to the power of music within a family, a person and a community and touched so many Kindermusik themes I had to share…
One of her sons had difficulties at school and at one point was labeled ‘educationally subnormal’. He found his relief and self esteem playing piano in assemblies at school. He is now a PhD scientist.
Another still plays in a band with someone he played with when he was 4. He is now in his twenties. Music is his place to bond and play.
She has another son who is a neuroscientist. He believes whole heartedly that every child should be engaged in some sort of music making. In her words, “He says we are only just beginning to gauge the positive benefits music has on the brain - it does something different. Every one should make music regardless of whether they are a ‘musician’ or not.”
We both stood with tears in our eyes as she told me about the enrichment music had brought to their lives. She still wells up remembering the three of them playing music together for the family at Christmas.
Why music? That’s why.
There is one space left for Wiggle and Grow for walkers – 3yrs 10am Fridays at Wells Cricket Club, South Horrington.
Babies to walking is at 9am and is just starting out. Come and join us!
Here’s a little bit of inspiration for us in a time when we are looking around…What is your song? What is your child’s song? Do you push them away or hold them close? When they are lost, how do you bring them back? When we are lost, how do we find our way home?
