“I like it when I get up after the duck has been on my tummy” Cleo, aged 3
We were thrilled with how the children's concentration & listening skills developed, & how they recalled the different elements of story-telling. It carefully fits many areas of the EYFS curriculum & characteristics of effective learning, & is complimented with support materials that we were able to share with parents. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Tatty Bumpkin to other early years professionals’ Mrs Ruddock, Assistant Head - Harden Primary School
“Tatty Bumpkin is a great way to build on the children’s self-esteem and confidence as well as the physical challenges involved in the sessions. Every week the children get transported on a magical adventure using their bodies and imaginations” Nursery Manager, Forbes Nursery, Edinburgh ‘
