“I wanted to be able to do the school run every morning and most evenings. I wanted to be able to work 3-4 days a week so that I would still have time to spend with my children. I knew how much money I would need to earn every month and Kiddleydivey lets me achieve that,” Eve Whitmore, franchisee since 2014.

Kiddleydivey music classes for babies and young children are lively and fun and use humour and laughter to enhance the educational themes. Uniquely, focussing on working in nurseries and preschool environments although Kiddleydivey of course provide open classes in halls and community settings as well.
Kiddleydivey music classes for the very young have a different theme each week. For example going ‘under the sea’ using bubbles, dolphins, fish and octopus, or visiting ‘the farm’ with animal masks, scarecrows and tractors! Whilst learning about these different environments the children learn to interact with each other, develop language skills and improve coordination as well as acquiring basic musical ideas such as volume, pitch and tempo. To develop the themes and, provide excitement and interest, new animal characters are constantly added to the classes along with new songs, ideas and instruments. New class themes are always being developed - all of them interesting and of course, educational.

Whilst Sally has over 35 years’ experience using music to help with people with dementia and Alzheimer's, she has designed the sessions and music so that it can be delivered effectively and purposefully by you - you don't need to be musical - just have a lively personality and love meeting new people!

There are so many people with Alzheimer's and dementia in Great Britain. Current numbers stand at 820,000 but the number is growing every day.

Kiddleydivey are extremely lively and energetic! They involve the audience by interacting with the whole group and individuals,
encouraging lots of participation. The introduction of the funny hats part-way through keeps people engaged and everyone
thoroughly enjoys participation with the musical instruments they provide.
Kiddleydivey is marvellous …. they engage our residents from the moment they introduce themselves to the final encore!

Everyone has a connection to music - young and old. People with special needs, dementia and Alzheimer's often find it difficult to communicate and relate to other people. Music naturally elicits strong emotions and encourages sociable behaviour which helps to overcome these difficulties. Music has the ability to bring people together and build confidence and happiness. Even those with the most advanced Alzheimer's and dementia can find comfort and pleasure in remembering the songs, recalling the words and bringing back to life the associated memories.

Kiddleydivey have many experiences of seeing people smile and laugh for the first time in many years.

Kiddleydivey music sessions and classes are structured, planned and have been carefully developed using a tried and tested model to provide a therapeutic, entertaining and enjoyable experience. Supporting this model, Kiddleydivey combines the use of bubbles, cheer leading pompoms, scarves, and hats for example along with a big box of percussion instruments, to encourage the everyone to participate, regardless of age and ability, whilst stimulating, entertaining and involving them in activity.
