Tumble Tots is a structured, active physical play programme for children from 6 months to 7 years.

At the same time, through the programme children develop their self-confidence, independence, self-discipline, self-worth and sense of security and identity.

All young children need to grow, to learn, to move, at whatever rate they find comfortable. They need to learn about themselves, and learn about their attitudes without fear of criticism.

Children must have the freedom to experience self-esteem and success, at the most fundamental level. After all, success upon success builds confidence. Tumble Tots gives children all these opportunities.
