A new class has been created to help children develop and play.
Tots Play offers a variety of activity classes, parties and play resources for babies and toddlers, with summer sessions starting in July.
Set up by mum-of-two Kelly Johnson, the classes create learning experiences for children as well as play incorporating music, yoga, massage, physical play, baby sign language and sensory play.
Kelly, from Tynemouth, said: “I am very excited to have the opportunity to start and develop the Monkseaton and North Shields classes of Tots Play, to continue my love of working with children but with the flexibility of a career to fit around my family needs.”
Classes are suitable for children from birth to three years across three different sessions.
Stephanie Graham, mum to eight-month-old William, said: “The combination of yoga, sign, music and physical play within one class is wonderful and William is thriving.”
