After helping to cut our fruit and veg for snack my little one decided we should do our own little science experiment to see if the seeds we found would grow - we have had great success!! We may still be closed as a business but our EYFS learning continues as we observe growth, decay and changes over time in our garden … our 🍒 have born fruit, our 🍓 are in bloom! It’s a shame we have no other little friends to share it with just yet, in our new location, but rest assured I shall post on here when we’re ready to re-open and in the meantime … enjoy the sunshine ☀️ x


Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful Mummies! I hope those gorgeous little ones of yours are spoiling you rotten this morning 💐


🌟Makaton Signing for Babies Courses Available Online 🌟

For those who are unfamiliar with Makaton it is the language programme of signs, symbol and speech used by Mr Tumble in the BBC’s Something Special .The great advantage of Makaton is the signs are the same throughout the UK and we use speech and sign, to enable users who are able to, to drop the sign and use speech alone when they feel ready to do so, making it perfect for use with babies and children in the Early Years.

Makaton Signing for Babies (MSB) is a fabulous Early Years course, teaching you signs and symbols right up to (and including ) that important potty training stage.

It can be great for helping ease Children’s frustrations and build their communication and language skills.

I can run MSB for parents, carers or professionals. It gives lots of ideas of how to introduce Makaton to babies and young children through stories, song and games.

I have worked within the Early Years sector myself for 18 years and incorporate Makaton into my own, Makaton Friendly setting, with great success.

Course length is 6 x 1 hour sessions but I’m more than happy to amend this to suit your needs, courses run in the evenings and at weekends.

Please do message me for further information and I’ll be more than happy to help!

I am also a full Makaton Tutor so if you have questions regarding any other levels of Makaton training, please dont hesitate to ask.

Many thanks x
