Classes 0 – 2 years
The classes are great fun, loosely based on yoga with lots of stories and are designed for parents to join in (so you can get a good stretch and also relaxation too!). The sessions are great for children on many levels (the physical side of the sessions, music, storytelling etc) as well as great fun. They start with the Tatty Bumpkin warm up song, Bendy, Giggly, Clever and Strong – developed by educational musicians; – then we do a specially adapted Salutation to the Sun which uses rhyme to aid memory. We then go on a magical adventure through the Giggle Tree, meeting animals, helicopters, sausage rolls – only limited by your child’s imagination.
About the classes
Our Baby Bumpkin programme uses the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum as its basis.
The classes are a 3-in-1 – combining storytelling, music and simple baby yoga movements with the fun Baby Bumpkin demonstration doll, and give all the babies from 6 weeks to crawling a great physical foundation to development.
There is also emphasis on the parent, with time for discussion amongst the group and lots of creative parenting techniques. The unique story structure will give you ideas on how to communicate and play with your baby at home.
All our Baby Bumpkin teachers are fully qualified and CACHE accredited, in addition to having training in Tatty Bumpkin techniques so can help with your baby as it progresses and grows.
The classes are held in pre-schools, nurseries, and private classes and sometimes in people’s homes. Baby Bumpkin is a very relaxed, informal way to have fun with your baby, whilst at the same time really helping with their physical and emotional development.
The classes can help aid digestion and other physical issues.
