Welcome to baby beans A 45 minute class perfect from birth to very early walking
A baby beans class is a gentle, relaxed introduction to music making for non mobile babies and is perfect throughout that amazing first year as your baby changes so rapidly before your eyes. Each class is jam-packed full of sensory experiences using sound, touch, movement and colour as they lie, roll, sit, crawl and finally toddle but we are very careful not to overstimulate or overwhelm the senses. We recognise the importance of verbal and physical interaction between you and your baby as it is integral to a young baby's development physically, socially and emotionally, so plan our classes to support this. Baby beans is a class full of gummy kisses,tickling, singing, cuddling, rocking and rolling, bouncing and dancing.
Our baby beans classes are very relaxed times; we understand that sometimes babies just want to be held or fed and that nappies always seem to need changing just as you are leaving home. We know that sometimes new parents are so tired, song lyrics seem impossible to remember so included in each term fee is a download of lyrics, rhymes and play ideas so you can carry on singing and playing at home all week long. Expect to hear music from all around the globe, to learn songs, rhymes and play ideas to enjoy at home and a time to meet and make friends with people who have babies the same age.
Oh, and did we mention the bubbles?
All our Award winning Jellybeans Music classes guarantee a warm, friendly welcome from a classically trained musician and Early Years specialist. This programme has been carefully planned and structured to support the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum so you can relax in the knowledge that your child's emotional, social, physical, intellectual and creative developmental needs are being supported whilst having fun together. We encourage everyone in the room to sing, dance and make music together, regardless of age or abilities and there are always enough instruments and equipment for everyone. We want everyone to have a happy experience, every time you come,so our classes are a time to dance, sing your heart out, tickle your little one, giggle together, maybe bounce, maybe lie down have a cuddle and join in 100% in the musical fun with your baby.
"I started baby-beans when my daughter was just over three months old. From the moment we walked in, we were made very welcome and at ease as everything was explained as we went along, It was the best 45 minutes and puts you in a good mood for the week. I, as a mum made some new friends as well as my daughter. It really is a brilliant fun class and halloween and christmas are fantastic sessions. We moved up to the Jellybeans class when my daughter was walking and that class was even more fun and exciting. It really is the best thing i did going as i was unsure & nervous before I went, being a first time mum what to do and what to expect." Freya's mum, Laura
