Twistin Tots began as a Tuesday session in June 2006, when Jacqui Davis, a former Marketing Manager in the Education and Training field, was six months pregnant with her second child.
Classes went from strength to strength and a Friday class followed a year later in October 2007, with a second Friday class – to meet demand – starting soon after in November 2007.
Successful classes have now been running in Matlock and Ripley since 2010 and Little Eaton since 2011. In 2013, two 2-hour Music & Play sessions were introduced in Ripley and Belper, combining the fun of the Twistin Tots music session with an additional open play session for the children for the same price. These classes have also proved to be successful.
January 2014 saw the introduction of Twistin Tinies, a new class for babies aged 0-18 months and their carers. These sessions offer a baby bonding session; a fun musical activity session; and a chat session for parents and carers – with free tea and cake!
