We know that young children can be very active and busy and their attention spans are very rapid that’s why we’ve put together a music programme specifically for the busy child in mind. The session includes counting and action songs with lots of different instruments to hold the attention of your child. We encourage all parent/carers to join in too as our children benefit greatly from this. The class is more physical and hands on so be prepared to have lots of fun with your child.
Tiny Twisters sessions has many links to the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum) This is the curriculum that all nurseries & reception class will use to ensure children are progressing. Through our music sessions children’s language & communication is enhanced through repetition, and action songs. Group sessions also help to foster confidence, communication & social skills.
Children learn about early maths skills from the various counting songs, their knowledge & awareness about their world is enhanced greatly through the new experiences such as parachute play, costume and other props which may be introduced into their session.
