Classes for 2-7 year olds

Drop In Sessions on a Monday (1pm) and a Friday (10.45am) at Ranmoor Parish Centre. No need to book, just come along! Term time only.

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 Children’s Care, Health and Education)

The terms follow the school terms and are made up of 5,6,7 week blocks, the topics covered in term one are:

  1. Focus/blance
  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 techniques, 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 & enables the fun to carry on at home! At the end of each term you can purchase a certificate [£2] which is a lovely reminder of Tatty’s adventures & postures.

There are no private classes running at the moment as I am super busy in Nurseries and Primary Schools, if you would like to have Tatty at your nursery or school, just let me know!

The cost of Tatty Bumpkin classes in a nursery or school setting is dependant on the number of children involved. Please contact me for a taster and an informal chat about costings.

The sessions are run as terms so that there is a progression

Tatty Bumpkin classes are ideal for all children of all abilities. Please contact me if you or your child has special requirements.
