Excellent training. Very interactive, physical, great resource, super ‘feel good factor’ for everyone taking part. It will have an impact on all areas of learning but especially PSED and CLLD. . an innovative approach to music in Early Years. Martine Horvath, East Sussex Early Years Advisor

The very next day I was teaching staff and children the songs we had covered in the training.  The children loved 5 Little Fish and learnt it within a couple of sessions.  It captures their imagination and holds their attention for more than any other song we have played.  Chocolate Cake was excellent for teaching children to think about words and how to break them down. Tamsin Moore, Westbrook Little People, Waterlooville
