Turtle Tots-The Brook

The Brook
Hello, we are Lisa & Caroline, two graduates who rose to Director level at large organisations within the fashion world. Having always loved swimming, we didn't think twice when the opportunity arose for us to be part of the Turtle Tots family and deliver our service to London. Coming from a world that was very strategic, we knew that our next goal would be life changing and needed to be something more personal and rewarding. We now run Turtle Tums Aqua Natal Yoga and Turtle Tots Baby and Toddler swimming classes across North London. We were inspired by Turtle Tots and the thought of providing a lifelong skill, as well as being able to influence the beginnings of a healthy start to life, whilst instilling water and safety confidence for both parent and child. Website

Ole Kids

Yellow Warbler
The classes run for one hour and have been planned to include singing, dancing, arts and crafts, music and story telling time. The Olé Kids curriculum was developed through years of observing children and what they like doing at different stages cognitively, emotionally and physically. They picked out the best elements of children's classes and coupled it with our knowledge, research, tons of love and respect for children and our endless passion for creating a Spanish speaking community.
