Peek-a-Boo Moves

Summer Holiday Fun 2017 - Peekaboo Moves - Thumbnail

(for children aged 1 – 4 years)

Singing, Movement & Play

Peek a Boo Moves is unique as I plan accordingly to the groups likes, abilities, needs and energy  adapting the session in session, balancing between dance, movement, play, music, song, art and sensory exploration. I develop activities from the children’s input supporting the bond between child and parent/career, confidence, coordination, world learning, imagination, language and more. I apply my extensive knowledge of dance and the arts, child development, group dynamics to provide fun and engaging sessions.

Tuesdays (10.00 am – 10.45 am) – New Class starting 7th Nov 2017

Fridays     (10.00 am – 10.45 am)
