Welcome, I am Emma Hester. As well as running children’s music and movement classes in the Maidenhead, Henley, Twyford & Marlow areas, I also provide sessions for nurseries, preschools, playgroups and children’s centres. MAD Academy specialise in teaching early years music and dance and we are known for our fun and physical approach to learning. Classes are full of singing and dancing, instruments, exciting listening games, different musical styles and rhythms, and stimulating props.
I work with local nurseries to provide sessions for babies and preschool children from 3 months to 4 years old. Classes are designed for the specific age and developmental stage of the children and activities are aligned to many of the Early Years Learning Goals. Sessions range from 30 to 45 minutes and I can adapt sessions to meet your specific needs.
I provide all the necessary equipment, music and instruments for every class and can also supply you with individual class plans, which highlight the relevant Early Learning Goals covered by each element, to assist your planning and assessment. I would be happy to visit your nursery to give you a taste of what we do with a view to considering us for a regular session. Contact me today to find out more, on 07935248749.
Children’s Centre classes
I also work with local Children’s Centres to run classes for parents and children aged 3 months to 4 years old. Our classes help promote physical development, listening skills, early speech and social skills, as well as providing parent and child with a fun and interactive time together. Classes are popular with parents and can be a great way for them to meet other parent’s in the area. You can find me every Monday afternoon at Maidenhead Children Centre, by Maidenhead Nursery, School Lane (off Harrow Lane), Maidenhead. If you would like more information, contact me on 07935248749.
Parties, fetes and events
As well as weekly baby and toddler classes, we can also provide one off sessions for fetes or special events. We are also very experienced at running fun-filled parties, so don’t forget us if you have a party coming up and need an entertainer!
