We hope you have enjoyed the month of March with all the madness it brought! Who would have thought that we would have had so much snow!
I am sure your little ones enjoyed seeing it, some of them for the very first time, and hopefully you got out to have a play too. It certainly brought the opportunity for some fabulous sensory experiences, exploration and creativity. Even our very own Totsy Monkey got in on the act. Here he is making snow angels in Birmingham!
We apologise that so many classes all over the country had to be cancelled or rearranged but the safety of you all must always be our priority, and we are crossing our fingers that Spring is now in sight and Summer not far behind!.
It has been an eventful month in other ways too.
You might remember us mentioning that Tots Play as a franchise and one of our lovely franchisees had been nominated for the Mum and Working Awards. Well the fantastic news is that we were runners up, earning highly commended awards, in both categories.
Huge congratulations to Tracey, who has only been running her business with us in Chesterfield for a few months, and thanks to all of you who supported and voted for us in the Franchise category, it really means a lot to us all.
Here we are at the awards ceremony in London.
And the awards don’t stop there!
We are also excited to announce that another of our franchisees, Fatema in Birmingham, has been nominated for an award with Hoop.
These are brand new awards celebrating people and organisations that go above and beyond to entertain, educate and inspire children, so we are thrilled to be involved. To win though we need your help!
Please vote for Tots Play Birmingham in both the Best for Babies and Best for Toddlers categories via the link below.
Thanks so much in advance, and we hope to have more good news to share with you soon.
