The children's time with Little Ruggers will give them both personal and sports skills they need to have a happy and life long love and enjoyment of sports as confident children to confident adults.
The goal of Little Ruggers is to draw more children into sports through these classes to encourage a healthy lifestyle, which we believe should ideally be instilled at a young age. Little Ruggers is a non contact play programme. Specifically designed using the transferable skills of Rugby to create a fun and enjoyable environment whilst developing basic core motor skills and confidence.
As children move from being infants to toddlers they become more self sufficient, wanting to explore and affirm their independence. We encourage this by the way our sessions are structured so they are stimulating and exciting. Through a range of fun activities children will develop better hand to eye co-ordination, balance and agility and that in turn helps social development through the promotion of self esteem.
Little Ruggers classes are fully insured and run by an experienced and qualified coaches and assistant coaches depending on numbers in a class. Coaches are trained in paediatric first aid and have enhanced CRB checked.
PARTIES: Make your child's birthday a day to remember with a Little Ruggers Party! We will take care of your children’s party so you can relax and enjoy the day. See our website for full details of packages available.

The sessions will begin with a warm-up followed by fun games and exercises which are designed to help the children become familiar with the correct techniques, rules and etiquette of football. The sessions will always end with small-sided matches. This gives the children a chance to show what they have learnt, emphasises teamwork and is of course what football is all about, plus it is the most FUN part!

Hands up who likes to pretend?! We all know how incredible a child’s imagination is – one minute they’re flying to the moon on a rocket ship, the next they’re sailing away on a pirate ship or chasing a dragon over the hills and at Pyjama Drama we put imagination centre stage.
Our classes are packed with singing, dancing, pretending and play. It's not only lots and lots of fun but Pyjama Drama also helps develop key skills such as confidence, communication and problem solving.

Fun & educational activities for Mums and their little mice! Led by ‘Mia Mouse’, an experienced Primary school teacher/Early Years specialist. Each session concludes with a story/rhyme time, led by Mia and our puppet friend ‘Messy Mouse!’
All our sessions are designed to encourage active learning and creative thinking (skills for life!). They support toddlers and pre-school children up to 4 years as they develop skills across the Early Years Foundation Stage. See our website for more details.
“My daughter is always so excited to go and see Mia and asks all week long when she is going again. She enjoys getting messy and having fun exploring coloured ice, custard, foam, cooked spaghetti, jelly and all sorts! She comes home with some fantastic crafts and pictures which she is proud to show off. I am always impressed by the level of imagination and creativity and the resources used are always of high quality. I am thrilled to have found someone who brings out my daughters creative side and cannot recommend what Mia offers highly enough.” (Parent –Kate )
