Jabberjacks Classes are available in Worsley, Prestwich, Urmston and Ashton Under Lyne
Jabberjacks deliver weekly classes to babies and toddlers across the Manchester area for children as small as 10 months old up to 4 years. Using a unique combination of puppets and sensory props, along with music, storytelling and lots of drama these classes are fantastic at helping your child grow in confidence. As you and the children have fun they are also learning to interact with the Jabberjacks puppets and toys, joining in to songs and actions, and exploring different colours, textures, noises and so much more.
Jabberjacks sessions really engage children through the variety of activities on offer at each class and each week they have time to explore, which is great for them. They also develop their co-ordination skills, learn to listen and follow direction and you really do start to see so much improvement in their speech as they learn to join in with songs and most importantly, have fun! An opportunity for you to spend quality time with your child. Mum, Steph said “Poppy and I have loved your classes. You have really been a part of her growing up. From a little one year old too scared to look at Jo Jo to a confident three year old high fiving and hugging her puppet pal.”
