Parent & Toddler Singing & Dance Classes With Makaton Coming To Stone!

Parent & Toddler Singing & Dance Classes With Makaton Coming To Stone!

Stone’s popular Rooftop Studios has long been the hub of fun and learning for local youngsters wanting to embrace singing, dancing and the performing arts - and soon it will launch brand new ‘Parent & Toddler’ classes to encourage even the tiniest tots.

Aimed at mums (or Dad's / Carers) with babies aged 18 months to 3 years, these classes are an extension of Rooftop’s fantastic ‘Little Luvvies’ group, which teaches singing, dancing and co-ordination to 3 – 8 year olds. The new classes will allow mums and their little ones to get involved in activities that are perfect for toddlers; including learning nursery rhymes with actions and some Makaton signing – which has been popularised by CBeebies’ Justin Fletcher (aka ‘Mr. Tumble’). The ultimate aim of the classes is to get mums and babies to socialise in a relaxed environment, as Rooftop Studios’ principal, Elaine Bird, explains:

“We believe in making learning fun and in building self-confidence from a young age. The new ‘Parent & Toddler’ classes will focus on encouraging little ones to socialise, teaching them how to communicate with other toddlers and bond with the parent – as well as providing the parent with a wider social network and useful tools they can use to occupy their babies at home.”

Classes will take place on Friday mornings from 10am – 11am at Rooftop Studios, above the Co-Op Arcade on the High Street and are priced £5 per mum and baby (tea, coffee & juice provided), with each term running for 12 weeks. There will also be a special free ‘trial’ session on Fri 17th Feb, 2012 to celebrate the launch – simply turn up with your baby and join in the fun!
