Classes for 2-7 year olds

Tatty Bumpkin classes are fun, yoga-inspired stories designed to encourage movement and enhance development. The sessions focus on giving a firm foundation for social, emotional and physical confidence – all required for future happiness and success.  Each session follows an adventure, using stories, music, props and simple yoga moves based around the character doll Tatty Bumpkin.

Tatty Bumpkin classes really do help children become happy and confident – emotionally, socially and physically, which is the foundation for a happy and successful future. Success can be measured by ‘well being’ – the ultimate goal of all human endeavour, is that we feel good about ourselves and the people around us, and do things in our lives which give us a sense of meaning and value. Tatty Bumpkin will help you and your children understand what this means and how to achieve it.

All our classes are aligned to the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, and have been developed by Paediatric Physiotherapists, Yoga teachers and educationalists, to give the children a creative, well rounded, developmental and fun story session.

The Tatty Bumpkin training is accredited by CACHE (Council for Awards in Care, Health and Education).

About the classes

The terms follow the school terms and are made up of 6 or 7 week blocks, the topics covered in each are:

  1. Focus/balance
  2. Dynamic movement
  3. Relaxation
  4. Multi-sensory world
  5. Feelings and people
  6. Music/communication
  7. Daily living skills

As a parent /carer you are actively encouraged to get involved in the class, as this greatly helps with creative parenting, and continuity outside the class.  You will be given a home sheet after each class, which is a reminder of what has been covered in the session and enables the fun and giggles to carry on at home! At the end of each term you and your child will receive a certificate which is a lovely reminder of Tatty`s adventures and postures.
