Twistin Tikes was launched in Nurseries and as a Pay As You Go Public class in 2015, as a class for children with greater understanding who are able to follow simple instructions – and many of the interactions at these classes are instruction based.
Classes usually follow a weekly theme – Colours, Jungle, Transport, Under the Sea (amongst others) and offer a lively mix of songs, parachutes, light shows and bubbles to entertain children and parents alike. Classes do also include some Twistin Tots ‘favourites’ for those making the transition from Twistin Tots.
At classes, we may dance with rainbow ribbons, hunt for bears, get chased by crocodiles, dance with the funky money, eat lots of jelly and swim in soup!!
Twistin Tikes classes currently run just once a week in Belper on a Monday morning.
In April 2018, Twistin Tikes Golden was launched in Care Homes – enabling parents and their children to have fun and interact with elderly residents at the same time – and helping residents to share new experiences and feel part of the world again. Care Home sessions currently run on an ad hoc basis, as requested by individual Care Homes. Often numbers are restricted due to space within the Care Homes themselves. Twistin Tikes and Twistin Tots’ customers may therefore be invited to attend the sessions which are currently free of charge for families.
If you would like to attend some of our Care Home sessions with your child/ren, or you are a Care Home Manager or Care Worker and would like us to visit your setting, please contact Jacqui on 07977 578 359.
