Hello! Welcome to the online home of Top of the Tots.
At Top of the Tots we run music and signing classes for children from 0-4+ including children with additional needs.
Classes are held on a Friday at:
Yeo Valley and Rural Outreach Children's Centre,
Station Rd, Congresbury, Bristol BS49 5DX
Sessions include 30 minutes of music and movement, action songs, signing, playing instruments, puppets and various other props. Afterwards there is chance for children to play and have a drink and a healthy snack and parents/carers to chat!
Termly fees are £4.50 per child per session with the special price of £6.50 for 2 children in the same family and £8.50 for 3 children in the same family. You can also pay weekly fees at £5.50 per child or £7.50 for two children where the second child is over 18 months.
At Top of the Tots our aim is to introduce babies and young children to signs (Makaton) that might help them to communicate before formal language takes over. Through action songs, listening to music and using a variety of musical instruments we also aim to develop a basic understanding of musical concepts (e.g. pulse, rhythm, pitch), an appreciation of music in its many forms (e.g. classical, world, folk) and a wealth of other skills including coordination and confidence. Our teaching of music draws upon the Kodaly method http://kodaly.org.uk/your-questions-answered/ .
Top of the Tots is also available to hire for children’s parties.
