The environment will help develop your child's balance, coordination, motor skills and social skills. Tiny Gym is a free play session so the coaches are on hand to supervise but there is no set structure apart from song time or story time at the end of the session. The sessions are open to anyone and no booking or membership is required. Website

Music Club

After a warm up together, each week includes a singing session, a drumming session and a tuned percussion and/or guitar session for every child in a smaller group, before coming back together for whole group singing or playing at the end of the session. This allows children to explore breathing and vocal techniques, rhythm work, instruments (especially percussion), working as a group and individually, listening skills, improvisation and composition.
