An interactive music session for singing, music and movement your younger ones with love

Singing Starlets also provides music and movement classes to many early years environments including large nursery chains, small private nurseries, SureStart and Children’s Centres too. We can offer a free taster session to any childcare settings who are interested in taking on regular sessions. Contact us to check availability for our free taster sessions and we will get back to you ASAP.

 

The aim of Singing Starlets is to encourage confidence, learning and development through fun and structured music and movement classes. Offering classes throughout your nursery/centre, from the baby room up to the preschoolers, can really add another dimension to your learning and development provision.

Our structured 30 minute sessions have a variety of activities to suit all children’s learning styles and preferences.

 

If you decide to give Singing Starlets classes a try, you can expect:

  • A monthly introduction to new songs that are fun, educational and relevant to the time of year. We recognise that repetition is important for learning, so we practise these new songs for a few weeks, so the children can get really good at them. We also mix in some well-known children songs and nursery rhymes, bring props, visuals, musical instruments, action songs, finishing off the session with the parachute and a song about colours. We then pop some bubbles to practise some eye-hand coordination (and also because it’s fun), before we have a boogie to our goodbye dance.
  • Sessions are led by an experienced singer/actor who uses their performance skills to make each class a focused, yet fun experience. The children are entertained with 30 minutes of interactive songs, which they are encouraged to join in with at their own pace and level. Classes are always carefully structured and designed according to age and ability.

 

What happens in a session?

We begin by singing the Singing Starlets song, where we say hello to the five Singing Starlets characters and do our “Roll our arms and clap the beat” actions. The Singing Starlets represent different musical features, which we sing about in the opening song every week- Sonia is a singer, Disco is a dancer, Rocco likes playing rhythms, Flash plays the guitar and Baby likes to learn through fun.

 

Babies and Under 2’s sessions:

We use a mixture of upbeat original songs and some of our favourite children’s songs to help children learn and develop coordination. The songs are brought to life using props and puppets, which captivate the children. They enjoy guessing,’who is going to come out of the bag and see them today?’ Singing Starlets is always very popular with the babies and under 2’s.

2-5’s sessions:

At this age we like to get the children up and dancing. We will teach them some funky dance routines to some ‘pop sounding’ childrens songs, as well as seasonal and educational themed dances and action songs. These help the children not only learn about coordination, but the content in the songs helps them to learn in a fun and relaxed way. In longer sessions (40-45 minutes), we also do drama. 2-5’s are also often invited to act out characters in well-known nursery rhymes, which they really love. Nurseries often comment how surprised they are that the shyest child wanted to stand up and do some acting in front of his/her peers.

Common features in all sessions include, music and movement, action songs, props and puppetry, musical instruments, parachute and bubbles.

 

Please note:

We do not recommend holding classes of more than 15-20 children. However, in certain circumstances, we are happy to discuss combining the under 2’s and 2-5’s classes to suit your needs. If you think this might apply to your nursery, please mention it when booking your free trial class.

 

As professional entertainers, Singing Starlets would also be a perfect addition to your nursery parties too. We often entertain at Christmas Parties, Graduation Celebrations and Open Days. Regular service users receive a significant discount on our party prices.

 

We also run after school clubs in performing arts (for children aged between 4-7 years of age). Please visit Starlets Performing Arts Club to find out more.

Ofsted Review 2013

The children enjoy the sessions as they involve singing, movement & language development. The children pretend to hold a microphone to enhance their singing. They sing and move to the song “Shooting Star”, this involves the children jumping into the shape of a shooting star.  The children learn to dance fast and slow and have fun while learning the meaning of these words. The session is fast paced and lively and is well pitched for the children’s age range to promote learning and an enjoyment of singing and movement.

Terri hosted my daughter Meliha’s 4th birthday yesterday, there was an age range of 1 year to 8 years old and every one got involved (even the adults). The props and songs used where well thought out and fun for all. Would not hesitate to book again. Would have gave you more stars if face book had that option. Thanks again for making a special day memorable in so many ways – happy children and one very happy mummy xxx

Terri was amazing this afternoon at our 3 year olds party today at Sharnbrook village hall.

Terri made sure to include every child including those who didn’t know others in the group and also from a diverse age range (4 months to 9 years).

Terri played games, sung songs and did dancing making sure all children got to unwrap during pass the parcel.

Thanks Terri for letting our little one have a fab birthday party!

A big thank you to Terri at Singing Starlets, for her energetic and captivating, musical and dance performance at our son Harry’s first birthday party. Babies from 4 months to kids up to 5 years of age, thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment and interacted with Terri and her singing starlets. I was particularly impressed with how she made every child feel part of the activity by interacting with them through song, dance and fun props. It was so good, Mummies and daddies even got involved! I would highly recommend Singing Starlets as an activity/entertainment for parties. The singing Starlets CD is also fantastic and a must in my car!
