Hello! Welcome to the online home of Top of the Tots.

At Top of the Tots we run music and signing classes for:

· babies (from four months)

· toddlers

· preschoolers

and 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 biscuit and a drink and parents/carers to chat!

Cost is £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. Fees are paid termly.

At Top of the Tots our aim is to introduce babies and young children to signs 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. Each session covers a different theme (e.g. the farm, the seaside, fairytale characters) and is tailored to suit the development of children in the individual group.

Top of the Tots is also available to hire for children’s parties.
