Meet your Class Leader

Jemma Shrimpton-Bridges

Hi I’m Jemma! I live in Rayleigh with my partner and three children, Luna, India and Louis, and I run classes in Hockley and Rayleigh.

It was with my youngest child that I found Tots Play. We started attending classes and immediately both fell in love with them! Having seen my own child really flourish through taking part in the Tots Play programme, from a little bit shy wanting to sit with mummy, to joining in with songs, taking part in activities and always wanting to give Totsy Monkey a big goodbye kiss, when the opportunity came up to take over the running of the classes myself, I knew it was something I'd love to do!

Prior to running the business, I was a stay-at-home mum, which I absolutely loved, but when it was time to go back to work I needed something that would fit around my busy family life. Running Tots Play is the perfect fit, and allows me to do something I love, without compromising on being there for my own family. 

I now have the privilege of sharing the wide range of wonderful activities that make up the fantastic Tots Play programme with you and your little one. Combining these with my own years of experience of learning through play with my own children and in the local community, I'm here to support you on your journey through early parenthood in a warm, welcoming and nurturing environment, as at Tots Play, we know family and the bond we share is the most important thing.

What I love most about Tots Play is the opportunity you get to spend real quality time with your child. Watching them learn something new or bonding over the yoga routines is a really special thing that I can't wait to share with you. I also love bringing people together and creating strong communities, and classes are a great place to meet other local parents too, to have some much needed adult conversation, and build lasting friendships for both your little one and you!

Please follow the links on this page to find the class for you and to book, or do contact me if you have any questions and I'll be happy to help. I can’t wait to meet you!

Happy Playing
