My 3 year old daughter LOVED her Teddy party! It was so well organised and fun and it allowed me time as a parent to run around and organise while the kids were occupied. I would definitely book again and recommend to my friends.

As a nursery manager I have to express how impressed I am. I have also had brilliant feedback from parents who often express how much their children love taking part in the sessions.

I like Chloe Bear because she has a nice flower in her hair and I like playing with my friends. It's fun – can we go again now?

It's a great idea for the 3 to 5 year olds to build a foundation of good all round athletic fundamentals with music and pictures to help the youngsters understand the learning experience.

The difference that I’ve seen in my pupils; they are just so enthusiastic about sport in general. They can see their own skills developing, they love the arrival of Head Ted because they know they’re going to have fun, and they just love every minute of it.

Elizabeth Heath, Headmistress

The kids can’t get enough of it. The growth and progression of the kids is phenomenal! It gives me tremendous joy and satisfaction to see them move along with their skills and watch their enthusiasm. It is truly fantastic!

Just wanted to say how happy we are with your program! Reese LOVES it and I’m so impressed with how the program is run and organized. Thanks for your great work! I’m a teacher myself and do appreciate how difficult it can be to keep 4 year olds organized and you do it so well!

Amelie has tried lots of different children’s activities but this is the first one she actually enjoyed! We booked her in for a week and she wanted to come back for more sessions. Her co-ordination has improved and she has overcome her shyness and now joins in. Amazing!

My young daughter cannot wait to get to her class, it is the highlight of her week!

Teddy Tennis was a fantastic way to introduce my 3.5 yr old son to the sport. He absolutely loved it and learnt different skills by copying the moves of a range of teddy bear characters. Each week presented a different tennis move and related song that played on a background DVD that all the mums ended up singing to! I would definitely recommend Teddy Tennis to any discerning parent.

Teddy Swimming helps establish the basis of a healthy life style for children by making exercise and activity FUN and involving. Once children get the bug for being active, they will want to stay active for good.
