Sticky Fingers Tiny School, Stockton on Forest  August 2019
“The children at Sticky Fingers Tiny School really enjoyed their Tatty Bumpkin adventures as they moved their bodies to stretch, balance and explore movement, getting into poses led by the teacher Alty, including a giraffe, worm, mountain and a hedgehog.  It was relaxing as we lie on our mats, with the music surrounding us, sometimes we moved alone and sometimes with our friends. We know that moving our bodies in this way helps us to be strong and helps us to be healthy, it was fun, and we enjoyed it. Thank you Tatty Bumpkin!  We continue the fun as we make crafts and pictures linked to each pose –  we really are Bendy, Giggly, Clever and Strong!
“I just wanted to say how beneficial your sessions have been with the children here at Little Green Rascals. Obviously each child is unique in their own way, some of the children having varying needs which are all catered for during the class. The children have found enjoyment, confidence and are building new skills from your Yoga classes and the parents have commented on how they continue their Tatty Bumpkin journey when they go home for continued learning and development. The sessions are inspirational for our little ones!”

“We have worked with Lena since September 2015 and always found her to be really friendly and professional. The children thoroughly enjoy the Tatty Bumpkin sessions and look forward to them on a Tuesday morning.  They are really beneficial to the children’s development and I would definitely recommend them to other parents and settings. ”

“Clare is an amazing teacher, calm manner with clear instructions. She takes time to listen to the children and cares about their learning and development.  We observe the difference Tatty Bumpkin has made to the children and Clare has cemented some really good relationships, not only with the children but with the whole staff team.  I am constantly recommending the classes to other nurseries and we couldnt imagine nursery life without Tatty Bumpkin.”

“As a mummy of a child that attends your classes at nursery, I have to say that Lily thoroughly enjoys your Tatty Bumpkin sessions.   I hear all about the journey she goes on from stepping over the river, to hopping like a bunny and walking like a penguin to build up those little muscles.  I have found Lily’s coordination and confidence has actually developed since attending yoga and would definitely recommend the class to other parents! Thank you.”

“The staff and children have really enjoyed the Tatty Bumpkin sessions, is has been a lovely addition to our usual provision. Lena will be pleased to hear that one of the little ones left the nursery last night chattering away about a seagull and a pirate! Lena has been lovely to have in setting and the staff certainly valued her calm approach with all the children.”
