Having come to our toddler classes when her girls were little, Vanessa has been a core member of our tutor team for 10 years. Vanessa runs baby and toddler groups in St Margarets, Twickenham and Teddington, sessions for families at local Children’s Centres, school sessions and you’ll see her at many of our ad-hoc groups too. She harmonises like a dream, bakes cakes like Mary Berry and is pretty handy at the Uke to boot!
Lucy has been a member of our team since 2015. Lucy has been volunteering and running art workshops at MeToo&Co (a local charity supporting children with additional needs and their families). Lucy runs baby and toddler classes in Twickenham and Teddington, sessions for families at local Children’s Centres and you’ll see her at many of our ad-hoc groups too. Lucy, Vanessa and Debbie sing in a choir together every week so they do get a chance to sing grown-up songs as well as nursery rhymes!
Debbie is our latest recruit to the tutor team and shares our passion for the colour red! Debbie has worked for over 10 years in an Early Years setting and has experience as a 1:1 LSA for children with SEN. Debbie runs baby and toddler classes in St Margarets and Teddington, sessions for families at local Children’s Centres and is one half of the team working at Evelina Children’s Hospital. She is music-mad and can play all manner of wind instruments and has just joined a choir with Lucy & Vanessa!
Our office ANGEL! Basically Brenda keeps this whole show on the road and enables us to get on with the important job of jumping around with chicken hats on our heads and looking like twits. Brenda is responsible for actioning all our random requests ranging from sourcing a big, rubber rhino or a kangaroo onesie to organising our cashflows, paying bills and doing our VAT returns. Every office should have a Brenda. In fact we want a ‘Brenda’ in our homes to organise our lives too……!
Zoe is Brenda’s office side-kick. Zoe has just joined our team having been to our classes many years ago with her little boy. Zoe gets the resources ready each Friday so that our tutors have kits that are jam-packed full of multi-sensory goodies for the following week’s classes. Like Brenda, Zoe’s job can range from the vital task of replacing a toy goat with a missing ear or finding a giant toothbrush to organising stock control or processing and reconciling orders – variety is the order of the day!
Belinda is our number-crunching book-keeper. She does it so we don’t have to. Belinda and Brenda are our Wednesday morning numerical dream team.
