The advert read Musical Meercats and this intrigued me, so a phone call was made to Rachel Wright who runs this exciting new concept for pre-school children to learn every aspect of music, from the playing of simple instruments to movement to the music.
They learn the shapes, touch, sound, while having a lot of fun. Rachel herself sounds fun, and is very keen for infants & toddlers to experience all these new sensations, to help their development and interaction. She runs three classes, 0 to 18months, 14 months to 2 1/2 and 3 to 4 year old. Each session is £5 and lasts a minimum of 35-40 minutes, just enough for the attention span of the youngsters. She has already had one class of the four planned, but you can still go along and join them at the pavilion in Burwash Common, on Friday mornings. A taster session would cost £4. Rachel hopes to start full time in September. Why no give your kids a treat, sibling discounts for two or more, give Rachel a call on 07867 787227 to find out more and book in your children.
The 1st Etchingham and Burwash scout group invite you along to their jumble sale tomorrow from 10.30am at the scout headquarters in the Bear car park.
