Non-Movers Sessions

Music & Rhyme

Craft Sessions

While being lots of fun, our music and rhyme sessions have been cleverly disguised to support key learning areas such as those set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework. Fun for both grown ups and child with easy actions, a huge range of songs and supportive props too!

We hire various venues for parents and carers to bring their children to on a pay as you go basis or sessions can be provided as a funded option to Children’s Centres, Home School provisions or any nursery/pre-school setting. We can adapt our sessions to support any key objectives that your group is measured on.

Non-Movers Sessions are suitable for babies from birth and for children with delayed mobility. These sessions are quieter and calmer than our mixed age sessions and focus on the importance of early communication, building a bond with your child and meeting other like minded parents/carers. In these sessions we use verbal and non-verbal communication and movement through actions and supported props.

As well as holding these at public venues that we hire for parents/carers to attend on a pay as you go basis, these sessions can be provided as a funded session in your home or a public venue hired by you and your friends. Sessions can be provided on a regular or adhoc basis.

Aimed at children from 2½ upwards, Ragdolly Annas’ Craft Club focuses on school readiness and building confidence, with a structured but fun session plan allowing each child to create a masterpiece with the help of their grown up.

We focus more on teamwork rather than the end result and children are encouraged to interpret the finished product in their own way. At the end of each session, the children have the opportunity to take part in ‘show and tell’ where they can answer questions on what they have made.

More Information

Our music and rhyme sessions are designed for children and their parents/carers from newborn through to five years old.

At these sessions, the children will enjoy singing and dancing to a range of different musical beats and rhythms with activities such as prop exploration, song choice and movement to music, encouraging a positive musical experience for both the children and their ‘grown up’ helpers.

While being lots of fun, our sessions are cleverly designed to support the key learning and development areas set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework such as Communication and Language; Physical Development; Personal, Social and Emotional etc, and each theme is supported by a documented session plan. We follow a new theme each half-term to ensure that you and your child have access to a wide repertoire of songs and rhymes, these include, Animals, On An Adventure and Rhythm and Movement to name but a few.

We hire various venues for parents and carers to bring their children to on a pay as you go basis or sessions can be provided as a funded option to Children’s Centres, Home School provisions or any nursery/pre-school setting. We can adapt our sessions to support any key objectives that your group is measured on.

Our sessions are not just for young children, we have been working with MacIntyre – No Limits since September 2015 where we run music and games sessions for their young adults with learning disabilities.

Our non-movers sessions are suitable for babies from birth and for children with delayed mobility.

Music plays a valuable part in children’s development and research shows that early exposure to singing, listening to and playing music can enhance a whole range of educational skills such as language and numerical skills, fine motor skills and an awareness of space and social skills.

Our specially designed Non-Movers sessions are suitable for all ‘non-movers’ from birth and focus on the importance of early communication for young babies using verbal and non-verbal communication through parent/carer voices, music, rhyme and body actions, such as wriggling fingers and tickling. We also use fun props and visual aids to support the connection between object and the song, making the session suitable for older children with delayed mobility.

As well as being a great social tool to get them used to groups, these sessions are also a great opportunity to build and reinforce a positive bond between you and your child without the interruption of the washing machine, hoover or phone 🙂 As a new mummy it can be very lonely sometimes, especially if your friends or family don’t have children of a similar age. Similarly, for parents and carer’s of children with delayed mobility, you may feel isolated as your child’s requirements may be quite unique. At Ragdolly Annas, we encourage a welcoming, friendly atmosphere at our all of our sessions and we will do our best to accommodate and needs that you may have, just let us know.

Spaces are limited at our baby sessions to ensure a gentle, calm atmosphere for our babies to relax and learn in.

These sessions are suitable from birth up to when your baby is starting to crawl. Don’t worry though, once they are crawling they can graduate to one of our mixed group sessions to develop the key learning points that we have introduced them to in these sessions.

Each session focuses on a different theme and the grown ups and children are encouraged to work as team to enable positive parenting and re-enforce the bond between the child and their grown up. A worksheet is provided as a guide only as we encourage each team to make their own interpretation of their ‘masterpiece’!

Creations include, Hobby Horses; Decorated Candle Jars; Fairy/Elf Gardens and Body Portraits to name but a few.
