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.
Location: Rugby coaching for toddlers and young children held in Letchworth Garden City, Hertfordshire

Jigsaw was established in 1995 by two actresses with a passion for passing on their love of everything performing arts. The belief in the benefits of performing arts activities for children was the driving force in the creation of Jigsaw and the reason why Jigsaw has continued to grow and become a well established and high quality provider of children’s classes.
Every student can benefit, in some way, from the performing arts. While some join us to build a firm foundation for a professional performance career, others do so to unlock their hidden talents, overcome their shyness or increase their confidence and social skills. However, what all students enjoy is having fun through drama, singing and dance classes, while making lots of new friends.
Children ages 3-6 years attend a 90-minute session divided into three sections of dance, drama and singing. Whilst the students aged 7-18 years attend a three-hour session comprising of an hour of drama, an hour of singing and an hour of dance, each with a specialist tutor. To establish an environment that builds confidence, regardless of individual ability, students are divided into appropriate age bands. All students will be challenged to their full potential.
Fees: 3-6 years £150 per term, 7-18 years £280. Sibling discounts apply and you can pay monthly on direct debit.
If you’ve not been involved in anything like the performing arts before, we offer a two-week trial to all new students. So come along and see for yourself. Jigsaw ciurrently run classes throughout London and the South east. Visit our website below to find your nearest school.
