Hello! Welcome to the online home of Top of the Tots.
At Top of the Tots we run Kodaly inspired music and Makaton signing classes for children from 0-4+ including children with additional needs.
Our classes are now back up and running face to face in a COVID secure venue in Yatton - Hangstones Pavillion, Stowey Road, Yatton BS49 4HS.
Sessions include 30 minutes of music and movement, action songs, signing, playing instruments, puppets and various other props. Please see our 'Schedule of Classes' for days and times.
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/ .
