Twistin Tots is a Derbyshire-based music group that runs classes for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers (ages 0-5). All classes are CAA Accredited and we have recently made it to the Finals of the “What’s on 4 Kids” Awards in London and will find out in October 2019 if we are a winner.
All of our classes offer a fun mix of rhymes, songs actions and props to educate your children and keep them entertained, as well as helping them to develop language, communication and social skills. All classes help to promote learning, co-ordination and movement in young children. Classes include many children’s favourite songs, including Dingle Dangle Scarecrow, Music Man and Horsey Horsey and parents are encouraged to join in to ensure that children get the most from classes.
- Twistin Tots – Lively classes with mixed ages covering 0 – 5; comprising themed and non-themed sessions which include nursery rhymes, songs, action rhymes and a variety of exciting, educational and stimulating props. There is some continuation from Twistin Tinies for those children who are moving up.
- Twistin Tinies – developmental baby classes for parents/carers with children 0-18 months (non-walkers); these classes are much calmer affairs and numbers are restricted to 20. Innovative props, light shows and parachutes make these classes exciting for babies and parents alike!
- Twistin Tikes – These classes have more structure than our Twistin Tots classes and are aimed at children who can follow instructions. All ages are welcome – we leave it up to each parent to decide which class is most suitable. Tikes classes are also delivered in nurseries where we hunt for bears, eat jelly, teach animals the alphabet, get chased by crocodiles and dance with the Funky Monkey, amongst other things! There are some familiar songs for those children who have graduated from Tots classes, but also new songs with new props and interactions for older children.
- We have also recently started Twistin Tikes sessions in Care Homes – allowing our little Tikes attendees to mix and have fun with elderly residents.
Twistin Tots and Twistin Tikes classes are Pay As You Go (PAYG) classes and cost £4.50 per session, plus £1 each for any additional child. Discounts are available for advance bookings.
Twistin Tinies classes need to be booked in advance. You can book in blocks of four classes at £28 for the block, or book in advance for the term (usually 12 weeks) at £5 /session.*
We are also now offering 3 x Trial Classes for £15 to enable you to try out our classes without making a big financial commitment.
*If you join mid-term, you must book ten sessions to qualify for classes at the cheaper price.
“Classes are fantastic. They encourage co-operation and social interaction and as well as this they are loads of fun. I have two children – a four year old girl and a nine month old son – and they both love it!”
Twistin Tots was founded in 2006 by local mum, Jacqui Davis, who has two children aged 12 and 14, both of whom attended Twistin Tots and enjoyed and benefitted from the classes. There are now four other staff, Jenny Cross, Lisa Leach, Frankie Stainsby and Charlotte Kirk who also deliver classes, nursery sessions and parties.
