Sophie runs our Saturday morning Take Part Tots classes at Glossop. The session focuses on the mindfulness & wellbeing of each individual. Through repetition with songs that involve movement, Sophie aims to set the tone of a positive day, holding space for the children the moment they arrive. Each week they start with a discussion catch up, that then leads into enthusiastic movements & memory games to warm up the body and work on hand/eye coordination.

“Each term we will work towards a little showcase where the tots ‘grown ups’ can come along to a session at the end of the term and watch the development of songs and dances we have been working on. This helps to build confidence, memory and encourages the children’s personal development where they can move up into our Stage 1 Theatrical Experience classes at the age of 5! A great stepping stone for the children, improving their social skills, special awareness & PMA (positive mental attitude).
