I can't recommend these classes enough - they are educational and fun for little ones and parents too! They are also a great confidence-builder for little ones, thanks to Nikki's enthusiasm and approachability. My son was quite a shy 2-year-old when we started Dandy, but within a couple of weeks he was rushing up to see what was going to come out of the bag next! Nikki pitches each class perfectly so that the activities are always exciting and engaging for the little ones, but they never seem to get overstimulated. For a room full of toddlers, that's no mean feat! Sadly my little boy is now too big to continue the classes, but I would highly recommend to other parents.

Dandy is the best baby class I have been to. Is has a bit of everything, sensory, signing and music! My son absolutely loves Dandy and gets excited every time I play the Dandy cd at home. He has learnt so many signs through Dandy and using them everyday. I am so pleased Dandy has now arrived in Oxfordshire!!! Thanks Nikki for such a wonderful class!

Having been to many baby and toddler classes with my son (now 4), I was thrilled to find Dandy Development when my daughter was a few months old. These classes offer such a wonderful variety of sensory experiences for little ones, the children are all thoroughly engaged and Nikki just oozes enthusiasm to which the children readily respond. Of all the classes I've attended over the years this one makes the others pale into insignificance. Thank you Nikki!"

DDandy has been a huge part of Felicity's childhood so far as well as my experience of motherhood. We've both learnt so much from you which has paved the way for us to "grow in every way" for years to come.... mainly that FUN is so important and easy to do with a few little tricks. We've learned all about using simple toys, singing, exploring, tasting, touching, puppets, cuddles, books, bubbles and of course talking with words and signs. Loads of tips for communication....repeat, repeat, repeat! I hope you realise the impact your teaching has outside of Dandy classes, laying the foundations for happy, confident children with happy, confident parents.

Katie has attended Dandy Development just before she was one (she's three soon) and has loved every second. Out of all the classes I'd trialled, this was the one where she lit up and I knew she'd connected with it from the start. The combination of signing, music and sensory elements means these classes allow the children to experience a wide range of activities. I noticed Katie thriving week after week! Plus, Nikki's enthusiasm is infectious! Katie was Nikki's shadow in the classes - always helping. She was always first in the queue to see Dandy come out of the bag too! Fantastic classes that Katie and I will miss very much." .
