Snappy tunes for parents and tots

NEW opportunities for parents and toddlers to bond through musical fun are on offer in Weston.

Amanda Bidmead – a fully qualified nanny who has worked in child care for 20 years - has started up Snappy Tunes after failing to find musical classes to enjoy with her one-year-old daughter Mia.

The group offers 45-minute sessions with songs, instruments and puppets – all designed to help stimulate children to help them develop.

Amanda, who is married to 35-year-old Tim, and lives with Mia and their son Lucas, aged six, says the sessions can enhance social skills, and boost knowledge of colours, numbers, rhymes and movement.

The 36-year-old said: “I started Snappy Tunes after trying to find a singing group to attend with Mia, but found there were not any suitable in the area.

“The group is a great way for busy parents to dedicate time to their child while giving them the encouragement and confidence to interact with adults and children.

“I love the group because it allows me to spend more time with Mia, and enables her to meet new friends each week.”
