I run the Moms and Tots in the Saxonwold area. I am a mother of two and a qualified junior primary teacher, with remedial experience.

I taught grade ones for many years, & then branched into Remedial Education when my daughter was born. I then took a Sabbatical when my son was born. Once he started school it was time to for me to get back into my passion... teaching.

I was very fortunate that the Moms and Tots in my area was up for sale, & there began my 'Tots Family'.

My classes are run from a workshop at my home in a beautifully treed, tranquil garden. I offer morning and afternoon classes Monday to Friday.

Moms and Tots consists of a two hour, once a week workshop, that Moms attend with their Tot (other care-givers are welcome if Mom can't attend). Workshops are small & age-specific.

I strive to create a fun, stimulating environment where Mom and Tot can bond and spend special one-on-one time together. Tots develop fine and gross motor skills through play. Their social and emotional development is enhanced whilst interacting with other children of a similar age in a nurturing environment.

Activities include:

  • Free play, where the Tot has an opportunity to explore the various toys, and play one-on-one with Mom.
  • Ring-time, which includes singing with actions, musical instruments and dancing.
  • Story time.
  • Creative activities.
  • Messy play, which includes a number of sensory activities, and water-play in Summer.
  • Obstacle course.
  • Lastly, garden play, where the Tot has a chance to play on the gross motor apparatus. At this stage, they are given a snack and water or juice.

Moms have a cup of tea and 'tea-treat', and have the opportunity to meet other Moms.

Moms and their Tots are my passion, and I pride myself in running my workshops with a personal touch!
