Wirral & Chester - children


.
Hi I'm Jess and thanks for taking the time to look at my webpage!

I am delighted to be bringing Kiddleydivey sessions to the Wirral & Chester and I know that the lively educational sessions will be very popular within the nurseries.

Kiddleydivey has been established for over 20 years and all sessions are devised by a music therapist. They are designed to be fun and interactive but focussing on key areas such as language and communication, imitation and developing gross motor skills as well as an understanding of musical elements such as loud and quiet, fast and slow. The children are learning all the time without realising it. More and more experts are recognising the benefits of musical activities for children and how it develops and uses all parts of the brain.
The sessions are themed - on the farm, under the sea, in the jungle etc; and follow the same structure so that the children can quickly learn the routines and enjoy anticipating what's coming next. There are a variety of quality resources such as puppets, bubbles, parachutes and instruments and the children get to know the different characters, such as waking Kiddleydivey cat up and playing Boo! with Herbert the Hedgehog! There is a mixture of original and traditional songs so the children are instantly familiar with some of the songs.

The sessions are suitable for 0 to 4 years and last for 30 minutes. The sessions can be linked to the nursery topics and are linked to the EYFS.


In my ‘previous life’ up to December 2015, I was Deputy Head of a large Special School on Merseyside. I have been teaching for over 20 years mainly within the Special sector and so bring these skills with me to the sessions. I use visual supports such as signing and symbols to support the language and communication within the sessions and am able to adapt them to support any children with additional needs. I am really enjoying being back on the shop floor so to speak having the quality interactions and watching the children develop and flourish within the sessions.

I work with 0-4s on the Wirral, Ellesmere Port and Neston & Chester surrounds.
