Hi, I’m Nikki and I’m beyond excited to run Tots Play classes in the Ribble Valley area.
I’ve always been passionate about working with children. I qualified as a primary school teacher in 2012 and, prior to joining Tots Play, worked in schools with children, from Reception age right up to Year 6. I love planning exciting lessons, making my own resources and seeing the look on a child’s face when they experience or learn something new.
In 2018 I had my eldest son, Rory. On the 3rd June that year, my whole world changed. My number 1 priority was Rory and although my passion for teaching remained, I found myself getting increasingly frustrated with my work-life balance. I knew I wanted to work with children but I needed to find an alternative that I could fit around family life. In 2020, Jay was born. My lockdown rainbow baby gave me the push I needed to finally take a (quite scary!) leap of faith.
During some late night googling, I came across Tots Play. I’ve taken both my boys to various baby groups over the years but I’ve never been to anything quite like Tots Play and I was instantly drawn to the idea of all my favourite activities (baby yoga, massage and sensory plus even more!) rolled into one. I knew Tots Play was a perfect fit for me straight away.
I cannot wait to welcome you and your tot to my Ribble Valley classes. I hope that they will allow you to build an even stronger bond with your little one, give you ideas for play at home and help you to develop a much-needed support network of friends who are all going through the same things as you are. All of this, whilst playing and having fun!
Take a look at the class schedule below to find the class for you and follow the links to book your place. If you have any questions at all then do get in touch and I’ll be happy to help.
I really hope to see you and your little ones very soon.
