Hello I am Nicola, a former early years teacher and mother of three with a strong love of music and passion for child development. Having attended Monkey Music with my own children and watched them flourish, I am excited to now offer baby and toddler classes of my own in Bicester, Witney and Kidlington. Come along to and join the fun!Read more...
As a teacher I taught in all years of primary school but specialised in Early Years teaching, covering nursery and reception. I found pleasure every day in watching children develop in all areas and become confident and excited learners. After having my first child I discovered the joy that comes with watching a baby develop and celebrating all of those little developmental milestones. I took my son to many baby groups but knew I had found something special when we went to our first Monkey Music class. The classes are not only energetic and fun but are also deeply rooted in child development and each class aims to develop children in three main areas: Social, Language and Physical. Not only that but they also have music at the heart of all lessons and activities.
When the opportunity arose to run Monkey Music classes, I didn’t have to think twice. I have always had a passion for music and singing, and feel very privileged to be able to bring the joy of music to children and their carers.
What do our classes offer?
Our youngest members can attend Rock ‘n’ Roll baby classes from 3 months. These classes offer a gentle introduction to Monkey Music and are a calm, engaging and nurturing experience for you and your baby. We use a selection of fun instruments, catchy songs and engaging props specifically chosen to stimulate your baby's senses. There is also plenty of opportunity for bonding with your baby and enjoying their smiles as they engage with other babies and listen for Monkey’s magical sounds.
At around 12 months old babies graduate and move on to our Heigh- Ho classes and following this will move on to Jiggety- Jig and finally our Ding Dong class. At each stage children will enjoy a curriculum which is specifically designed for them and their level of development and packed with fun learning opportunities. They will enjoy a range of over 500 original songs, written with child development in mind. All lessons include high quality props and instruments and most importantly lots of music, singing, movement and social interaction!
Monkey Music is now over 25 years old and a leading provider of baby and toddler music classes. The curriculum is regularly reviewed and updated to ensure that you are really getting the most out of the precious time spent with your child.
So what’s in it for you?
Monkey Music classes for my children and many others are a highlight of the week but they aren’t just all about the babies/children and their enjoyment. Spending a 30 minute session with your child each week in an environment where you are able to focus solely on them provides a powerful and magical bonding experience. Parents, grandparents, nannies or childminders often find that they enjoy the sessions just as much as the children. Singing and playing music as a group is a wonderfully social activity and provides an opportunity to meet and spend time with other carers.
Come and join us at one of our baby and toddler classes! We offer a free complimentary class to give you the opportunity to come and find out all about Monkey Music. I really look forward to meeting you soon!
