LOCKDOWN LIFE & BEYOND
Until the pandemic, Tempo Tots classes were running on Mondays and Wednesdays, at Burgh House, Hampstead, The Grafton in Kentish Town, and St Marys Islington.
Unfortunately, our usual indoor venues are still not available, so sessions will take place outdoors in parks, or online in the event of rain, for Autumn 2020.
"Thank you for your fantastic classes. My little one may not always seem like he's with us during the class, but he's soaking it all up. All week, every week, we have constantly re-told stories and sang your songs. It's been wonderful to enjoy them with you...I was a teacher in my pre-Mummy life, and there are so many families that would make so much of your classes."
Sarah, mum to M (2yrs)
"Thank you so much for the online classes you did all through lockdown. It was the highlight of our week when we were stuck at home unable to socialise. I am amazed at how good my baby has become at listening and love how interested she is in music and singing now."
Bridget, mum to I (10months)
During lockdown sessions continued online. Below are some kind words about our Zoom Music Sessions:
Tempo Tots is always on our weekly timetable! My 5 month old Violet loves the songs, the instruments and the bubbles but perhaps loves Emma the most!
She really is amazing with the babies, they all seem fascinated by her! A great way to let Violet meet and play with other babies and a great way to meet other mums. really fab sensory experience which never fails to engage, in fact, it's a pretty much guaranteed half hour of happy baby for me! Definitely recommended! "
Jessica, mum to Violet, Camden
