My daughter absolutely loves going to tumbletots and always has so much fun. She has been going since attending as a baby at gymbabes and has developed up to the walking to 2 years and after her birthday in July she will be moving to the next age group up! I think tumble tots has helped her development in all areas especially helped to build her confidence. So I would be more than happy to be involved in promoting such a fantastic group!Michelle -Oldbury West Midlands

 

March 2012 - Dear Tina, Thank you so much for your input and your wonderful manner with the children. That approach definitely got the best out of Harvey and no doubt maximized his learning outcomes during his time with you all. We will look back fondly on our memories at Tumble Tots and all the things your team and you taught Harvey. You and your team played such a key role in both Harvey's and my lives, as we both went on the journey from baby, to toddler and then to little boy. Harvey talks about you all, all of the time and I have noticed that his climbing and balancing are so much better than other children who have not attended your sessions.

Thank you so much again; your sessions have been so beneficial to Harvey, across the board. I recommend Tumble Tots to mothers that I meet all the time through toddler groups. I intend to keep in touch and update you on Harvey's progress again in the future. Please keep up the fantastic work that you do with the children. Helen (Harvey's mum, Spalding)

Dec 2010 - Today is Oliver’s last Tumble Tots session before he starts pre-school next term, and I just wanted to write and thank you for all that you have done for both my children over the past 5 fiveyears.

Abigail and Oliver have both loved Tumble Tots since they started aged 1, and thoroughly looked forward to coming every week. It has not only developed their co-ordination but has also given them a love of climbing and physical activity.
 
I have really appreciated the element of discipline it has given them; making them conform and follow instructions by listening carefully. These are all skills that have allowed them to settle quickly at school and participate fully in other activities they have attended.
 
I too have also had an opportunity to meet other Mums and therefore socialise with people in the same situation as myself, which I have really appreciated. 
 
I also want to thank all the other ladies who have often been their on a Monday with you, but it’s been lovely that the four of you have been there consistently over the many weeks, clearly striving to make all the sessions fun and showing an interest in all the children as individuals.
 
I will remember our time with you as really important in Abigail and Oliver’s early years - Beth from Reading

 "I am mum of twins and initially worried about how on earth I would cope with two small babies at Gymbabes session. I contacted the "owner" of the local group who assured me that bringing 2 little ones along was no problem and they would fully support me. My girls have a condition which means they are severely double jointed and only now, at almost 2 are beginning to stand/walk. GymBabes has been a fantastic way to encourage them to weight bear, crawl, climb and "tumble" with absolute confidence. All the helpers at the sessions have been excellent and help me each week, from getting a baby from the car to putting her back in. The environment at Tumble Tots is so friendly and my girls love it when I get their Gymbabes T-shirt out of the wardrobe. All of the helpers at the sessions know what physio the girls are working on and incorporate this into the way they play - I truly believe that attending these sessions has encouraged my girls to "get up and go" and given me an opportunity to attend a hands on type activity with twins. " - Helen Davey from Tumble Tots North Nottingham

If I was to sum up Tumble Tots in one word it is “Professional” everytime we arrive the equipment is set up and they are smiling and ready to welcome us. They obviously care tremendously for each and every tot. parent/Grand-parent/Relative and demonstrate  this week in week out in a way appropriate to each individual. SAMANTHA VYNER-BROOKS- Lancaster

Tumble Tots takes a genuine interest in the parents and their children .and I would also consider her a friend….I am sure many others think of her in the same light. Never without a smile, the team are always welcoming and they too show traits of genuine interest in the parents and children involved. This can only be down to the strong leadership she provides. Melanie Wooding Jones- Watford

Come snow, rain or shine this group are positive, enthusiastic and generate a happy atmosphere for the children to play and learn. My son loves Tumble Tots and this is in know small part to Sarah and her team who encourage him and are always smiling. Erica Phillips- Luton

Dale and his team offer a varied 45 minutes making both parents/carers and children feel welcomed and valued, within the group. Each member of staff address the children by their first name and takes time to get to know the children, what they like and don’t like. Offering extra support to those that may need it. The atmosphere is warm, welcoming, fun and very interesting. Only wish the sessions were longer! Claire Walsh- Doncaster

 

We recently visited the Gymbabe class at Orpington with our daughter who is blind and she tells us the team are very helpful and supportive, enabling Ella to be like the other children. They even turned the radiator down so that her guide dog Tag would not be too uncomfortable! Mrs J Pearson- Orpington

Mummy and I both agree that Sharon at Harlow and her team are the “Greatest”, because of their smiles which are as bright as my Tumble Tots tee shirt, they give me the encouragement to climb a mountain, the confidence to stand in front of an audience, the praise that tells me that I am being a good boy and they make my Tuesday morning feel sunny even on a rainy day! Mrs Gudgeon on behalf of Connor- Harlow

My children have attended Tumble Tots for the last 3  years. The friendly and warm approach encouragaes the children to participate in the classes making it exciting and interesting. The staff quickly worked out the limits of my daughter and gave her time and space she needed to progress and enjoy her time at Tumble Tots. Her confidence grew and with the help, patience and encouragement of the staff she successfully completed her 3-5 year class. Dianne James- North Nottingham

I have 3 children, 11, 9 and 2 all have been through Tumble Tots at Reading. My daughters (12&9) both have significant special needs and throughout their time with Tumble Tots they were encouraged, praised and given the confidence that only comes through people who really “care”. Their skill when dealing with both co-ordination and behavioural difficulties has been considerable. This sort of care, skill and enthusiasm only comes naturally. Tumble Tots Reading have shown to all the members of my family just how much they “care” over a number of years - Lucy Walton

The Team have made us all feel welcome and we are all keen to go along each week. Even the youngest member of our family, Joshua has been watching Tobias regularly from the sidelines since he was a couple of weeks old. The team have welcomed us all and managed to find a spot for the new babies and bedraggles second time mums in the Saturday morning class. - Anglea Richards-Chapman

I really wanted David to come out of his shell and really wanted him to make new friends and get some exercise. I didn’t hold out much hope but we came for a trial at Tumble Tots anyway. The first time, David was really nervous and shy and didn’t want to let go of my hand, but the ladies were so good. They encouraged him so much and made it such fun for him. They really made us both feel welcome. The second time we went back David couldn’t wait to go in and get started. Since that day he has become so outgoing and chatty. He is bright and bubbly and loves all the activities. He is fit and healthy and the only thing he can think of to complain about is that in September this year he will start school and will have to leave Tumble Tots because they don’t run a Gymbobs in our area. - Nicola Baytun - Esher

Ilkley crew have made Tumble Tots a wonderful haven, where parents learn to love playing with their children. Consequentially the children learn fast in a bright and encouraging environment the team itself works quietly and with confidence, with both children and parents flourishing in their care. A wonderful team that deserves recognition, recognition that in sure all who use Tumble Tots Ilkley would agree is richly deserved. Micelle Halsey - Harrogate

 

Harry is now in Tumble Tots 2-3 years and he absolutely loves it. He has no fear on the equipment and loves to sit at the front next to whoever is leading the class. He can cling at times to me but at Tumble Tots he will join in and go on his own. This is all thanks to Ann and her team who seem to know how to deal with every child’s individual needs and appear to have a tactic for most situations. Thanks to Ann and her team I have been able to try many different techniques with Harry many of which have worked.Sharon Leaver - Huntingdon 

Tom has developmental delay he started to walk just before his 4th birthday and is now (at 6 years+) starting to learn how to run, jump, skip, and climb. None of these things come naturally to him and he has to be shown/taught how to co-ordinate his body to get the result he wants. He has always been made to feel very welcome at Bramhall by all of the team and they have taken the time to get to know him so that he feels secure enough to try new challenges with them. They have somehow found the balance of giving him enough attention and encouragement to attempt new feats without drawing attention to him in a negative way or that would impact on the rest of the group. When Tom does accomplish something new he is congratulated by the appropriate team member and sometimes even the other children. I have not heard any child at this class question his being there, he is completely part of the group- the boost to his confidence is incredible. Mrs Shirley Carroll - Bramhall

Smita is the most enthusiastic inspiring lady I have ever met. The children (and the parents) adore her. She is so happy and full of life, it’s infectious. Each of her team have their own personal qualities so they compliment each other perfectly. Everybody has fun and thoroughly enjoys the sessions. The relationships they have with all the children is brilliant, each child praised and encouraged. Each child’s individual needs catered for constantly offering support when appropriate. My son and others have such confidence not only in there physical ability but also socially. When it came to the 3-4s class he didn’t bat an eyelid when I had to leave. He feels so secure with all the staff he was happy for me to go. Paula Cleary - Leicester

 

 

 Just wanted to say how wonderful Gymbobs is in Northchurch, Hertfordshire. I have a son who has learning difficulties and poor co-ordination. He has been attending Gymbobs for a few years now and all the staff are magnificent with him considering he has no social skills, is hyperactive and has poor concentration. He loves going and his co-ordination has improved tremendously thanks to the ladies at GYMBOBS.

WHAT A SUBERB DAY... once again at Legoland Windsor!!!!

Great fun at Legoland WindsorThousands of Tumble Tots families had another fun filled day at Legoland. Not only did they enjoy all the fabulous new rides in Legoland, but also had a whale of a time dancing to the tunes of Tumble Tots favourite songs. Joining Tumble Tot were friends- Bob the Builder, Fireman Sam, Dora the Explorer, Maisy Mouse, Noddy Big-Ears and Tessie Bear.

As always, every member went home with a goody bag stuffed with lots of gifts... perhaps Christmas has come early this year!!!

A huge thank you to all of you who were there... we hope you had fun!!!

Our children have enjoyed exercising (balancing, singing, rolling, climbing and much much more) in a fun filled yet educational and safe environment. This learning provides all the basics that children need during their early years and is achieved by the team on a regular basis through theme weeks (numbers. shapes, colours, animals, and social well-being etc.) All of this is accomplished in a relaxed manner yet the team still manage to promote discipline .Advice and support is offered by this team of a professional, approachable bunch. - Keri Comins

We have been doing Tumble Tots for 6 years, with 3 children the team at reading is always incredibly cheerful (always smiling) and motivated.  We have experienced different stages of Tumble Tots, from early walkers to preschool groups and have always enjoyed them.  We like the Tumble Tots approach, in general, but it the enthusiasm that keeps us coming back.  We are a busy family and the children do lots of different activities, but Tumble Tots is the only Activity we've encouraged them all to do. Gill Nelis - Reading

 

I attended the Bar Hill Tumble Tots and well it was great fun I really enjoyed it Sylvia is great with my son and of course all the other children. All the other staff was also extremely supportive. It is clear the staff enjoys being there and it is run so well. Since my first visit to Bar Hill I have also attended the Milton Tumble Tots. My son has been encouraged by the team to join in, which he has done; I get feedback from all the staff as well as Sylvia. In just two sessions I can see the change in my son and it is great.Miss J.C.E. Barker

 

June 2010 Jessica says:
This is an incredibly well run, energetic and fun programme for children. My 3yr old daughter has benefitted greatly from Tumble Tots, in both her physical and social development.

As a bit of a slow starter in terms of physical confidence, I have watched her develop week on week for the past year, progressing through the Tumble Tots programmes, whilst always retaining her enthusiasm to attend. She can also be a touch willful and these sessions provide her with vital social experiences such as following instructions and responding to differing adults 'in charge', all within a fun environment.

I feel extremely confident in saying that when I look back I will definitely rate joining this group as one of the best choices I made in her early years.

Alan is incredibly friendly and skilled in what he does, backed by a great team.
