About Us

My name is Leonie Brady, and I am a local St Albans mum of 3 former Tumble Tots, now 16, 14 and 9 years old! Over 10 years as a Tumble Tots parent, I saw first-hand how fantastic the classes are for pre-school children's development, and how much fun they are for children and adults alike!

After my youngest child graduated from Tumble Tots, I jumped at the opportunity to take over as the franchisee for St Albans & Borehamwood. Over the last five years, I have loved helping thousands of local children to develop their skills and confidence, and have fun being active! Every week, parents tell me how much their children love coming to Tumble Tots, and how the skills and confidence they have developed in class have helped them out in the wider world. For my amazing team of Tumble Tots ladies and me, this is what makes our jobs so rewarding!

Classes run on Mondays and Thursday in Allum Hall, Borehamwood, and on Wednesdays and Fridays at the YMCA in St Albans. Book a trial class now and help your child to develop their “Skills for Life”!

Our Mission

Our mission is to develop children’s essential ‘Skills for Life’ and to create a positive association with physical activity at an early age, helping little ones grow up healthy and happy.

Our Values

Development is at the heart of our programme because children develop faster in the first three years of their lives compared to any other time. Therefore, it is important to introduce little ones to a range of different activities as early as possible to help them learn and develop physical, cognitive, and social skills.

Our Programme

 

Our programme is designed to develop children’s physical, cognitive and social skills through a range of activities using our brightly coloured bespoke wooden, foam and handheld equipment.

Each individual piece of apparatus and the activities that accompany them, are specially designed to aid a different aspect of children's development, and vary between the classes to reflect the developmental needs of that age group.

We provide a happy and safe environment for children to meet and engage with other little ones, as well as grownups, forming and building relationships which are important for social learning and personal wellbeing.

As children progress through the programme, they will develop and refine their skills further, learn new proficiencies and gain more confidence in their abilities, which is one of many reasons parents chose Tumble Tots.

Our Classes

 

We offer five different classes, each tailored to the age and specific stage of a child’s development:

•  6 Months - Walking
•  Walking - 2 Years
•  2 - 3 Years
•  3 Years - School Age
•  Gymbobs

Little ones attend weekly alongside children of the same age and with similar capabilities. Together they participate in activities and use equipment suited to their level of understanding.

Every two weeks the layout and pieces of equipment are changed to constantly vary the activities providing children with new challenges and even more opportunities to learn.

Our Motto

 

“Your child’s springboard to confidence!” We believe that we provide children with a platform to gain confidence: •  Physically - the confidence to try new activities and take on bigger challenges. •  Socially - the confidence to interact with others and express themselves. •  Cognitively - the confidence to ask questions and take initiative. •  Personally - the confidence in themselves to be able to achieve their goals.

Our Story

 

Tumble Tots was first created in 1979 by former British Olympic gymnastics coach, Bill Cosgrave who identified that the children coming to his sessions were not equipped with the necessary fundamental physical skills needed to perform basic gymnastic movements.

Consequently, he developed classes to teach children these simple but essential skills, before moving on to his gymnastics lessons, which evolved into the progressive physical play programme that we know and love today.

Whilst our classes have remained largely unchanged over the years, our programme has evolved through a greater understanding of the importance of physical activities in overall early years development.

The longevity of Tumble Tots is a testament to the quality of our programme which is demonstrated by past generations who see the value of classes by benefiting themselves and therefore bring their children and grandchildren today.
