News: Stafford Pre-school Music Classes go Bananas in Pyjamas

Jo Downes fundraising for the MPS Society with parents and their chldren from her classes

Babies, toddlers and even some parents have been donning their pyjamas this week to help raise valuable funds for the Society for Mucopolysaccharide Diseases.

Rhythm Time music classes for babies and toddlers have been fundraising in their local classes across Stone, Hanley and Biddulph to help raise awareness and funds for this rare genetic disease. Yvonne and the team at Balance & Beam have also been supporting the sessions throughout the week.

Jo Downes, local franchisee and class teacher, quotes, "we're passionate about raising awareness and money for this relatively unheard of condition. It's a very worthy charity who need our support in order to continue valuable research and to help those families of little ones with MPS."

"I'd like to thank all the parents and carers for their kind generosity," adds Jo.

More information on the condition can be found at and donations are welcome by contacting them directly.

Rhythm Time’s unique sets of children’s music classes have been specifically written for the different age groups: babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. The sessions are multi-sensory and involve singing, movement and playing percussion instruments. As children grow in confidence and reach each key developmental stage, they make a seamless transition to the next age appropriate class. Free trials can be booked at or by calling Jo on 07947 525791.
