Happiness is life set to music

“"AMAZING!!! I cannot recommend this class enough. Jo provides a fantastic learning experience for babies alongside a warm and relaxed environment. My daughter has grown in confidence socially. Her fine and gross motor skills have further been enhanced by the different sensory opportunities and variety of activities she's given in classes. A great group for both babies and parents."”

“"Elijah is now 19m and started Jo's rhythm time classes at just 8 weeks! He has grown in confidence and continues to thoroughly enjoy the classes ...theyre so well structured that the children always remain interested throughout ...its learning with socialisation ...would fully recommend."”

 —Julie, Mum to Elijah ( Hanley, Toddlers)

“I have felt so welcome at Jo's rhythm time class and my baby daughter thoroughly enjoys the session. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. There are many instruments and other pieces of equipment that bring the session alive and make it fun and interactive. Jo leads the session with confidence and she has such a calm and beautiful singing voice. My daughter relishes the opportunity to try out all of the different instruments and the social aspect with the other babies in the session. I look forward week by week to seeing how my baby develops and achieves her milestones.”

“I started Rhythm Time classes in Stone when my daughter Abi was 5 months old. We found the classes great fun with the instructor Jo, who is lovely. The classes have given me a better repertoire of songs and games that I can play with Abi at home. The venue in Stone is spacious, carpeted and clean, which is great now Abi is crawling. Abi is now 10 months old and I can really see how much of the classes she has taken in. She gets so excited when particular songs play and especially when Ratatat or Arabella make an appearance. I'd definitely recommend this class for anyone wanting a fun, friendly and helpful music class.”

“"Theo loves his Rhythm Time classes with Jo. I enjoy spending one on one time with him and he is getting to know the songs and the actions. We have even been practicing the exercises at home. Jo's bubbly personality and enthusiasm for music makes the class extremely enjoyable for us both. Theo also gets to socialise with other babies too."”

 —Katie, Mum to Theo (Baby class)

“"Phoebe and I really look forward to Rhythm Time every Tuesday! She has progressed so much since being part of the class; she has become so much more sociable and her motor skills have improved greatly through exercise and using musical instruments. The regular 'hello' and 'goodbye' songs have helped her to anticipate events. All of the skills she's learned help her to progress everyday!"”

 —Rachel, Mum to baby Phoebe
