Nurseries


Nurseries

Working in partnership with nurseries, linking in planned themes and activities to extend topics. Each session plan is documented, showing the early learning goals and linked to EYFS.

We provide multi-sensory resources for each child and use a parachute, giant lycra or stretchy bungee for teamwork and collaboration to provide learning through play opportunities. Music & Movement contributes significantly to supporting children with delayed development, our sessions are fully inclusive and support children with special educational needs. 

By combining Music & Movement children can develop a wide variety of skills: Physical, Visual, Language, Listening and Musical, whilst thinking Creatively extending memory and social skills. These skills give children a huge advantage in learning and help them fulfil their genetic potential - and it is great fun too!

The cost of a 30-minute session with a qualified teacher is £30 with discounts offered for multiple sessions and charities  (All our teachers are fully insured, DBS, safeguarding, and first aid trained)

The Kimble’s experience is a great opportunity for practitioners to learn new songs, games and rhymes using the simplest of materials as well as turning traditional songs into exciting new activities. A great way to upskill staff at no extra cost to you, choose your focus area or mix and match.

Meaningful Movement and Physical Literacy are our specialism and incorporated into ALL our programmes. Children will learn to drive their bodies and continue to develop both their vestibular and proprioceptive sense.  Each focus supports development across the other 6 areas of Learning
