Hello, I’m Kerry. I live in Birmingham and am a mother to two amazing children, a boy and a girl.
Whilst on maternity leave with my son (almost 5 years ago now), I was keen to attend classes with him to support and promote his development, allow us both to socialize and to also give me ideas of things I could do with him at home. Being a first time Mom, I sometimes felt lonely and isolated as Motherhood was a whole new world to me… what was I supposed to do with a baby all day? I took him to local stay and play groups but felt like we needed more.
Then I found Tots Play, which offered us yoga, massage, signing, music and sensory play. Both my son and I loved the classes. We benefitted from them so much. It strengthened our bond, got us both out of the house and into some sort of routine once a week, allowed us to socialize and build relationships, gave us ideas of what we could do at home together, and I saw his development thrive. While on maternity leave again with my daughter I was keen to return to Tots Play with her as I know how much it benefitted my son and me. She loved it just as much as he did.
Having previously worked in a primary school as a teaching assistant I really enjoy working with children and their families, supporting their learning and development, and watching them grow together so I knew I want to continue to work with children as I find it so rewarding, but with two children I needed more flexibility.
Having such a positive experience of Tots Play myself, I knew I wanted to enable others to gain that experience and make precious memories together, and running my own Tots Play classes was the perfect solution. I am so excited to bring Tots Play to Kings Norton and Northfield and can’t wait to meet you all!
See the class schedule below to find the class that’s right for you and book your place, or get in touch with any questions and I will be happy to help.
