Getting your tots out and about tumbling or not is a life-line for any parent in the Woodford Loughton or Chigwell areas. Letting the little ones let off steam and socialise while you can enjoy the company of other parents and carers is vital. If you have just moved home and are new to the area it can be a good way of making local friends for yourself and your little ones.
Tumble Tots say their sessions allow your children to use special equipment to develop their coordination, balance, agility and climbing skills. Sessions are structured with activities matched to your child’s age and ability and involve parent participation.
