So what exactly is Razz Early Years?

Razz early Years is made up of 3 different classes for 3 different age groups:

  • Tiny Tots babies to walking,
  • Tots walking – 3 years
  • Mini’s 4-6 years

Let’s look at each in detail:

Explore, play & bond

Parent and child working together
Classes run for 1 hour usually in the morning

Tiny Tots has been developed to inspire little ones from 6 months to walking to see the world through imagination, senses, play & performing arts. The Tiny Tots class structure features a mix of “Time to bond” and “Time to share”, allowing for more one to one time between parent and child, with the teachers delivery focussing on guiding the parents in working directly with their children.
A great first step on the ladder before children start independently following teachers instructions for themselves with their parents help during Tots, before then Completely becoming independent
of their parents in the room on their own during Razz Minis! Classes run in 6 week ‘themes’ rather than a full term, with each 6 weeks exploring a different and
varied theme.

Melody, movement & Imagination

Parent assisted class
Classes run for 1 hour usually in the morning

Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances. Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up. That’s why Razzamataz has designed Razz Tots for children walking up to 3 years, an exciting journey through the jungle, to space, under the sea and much more! Razzamataz hope to aid parents to ensure that their children can develop and achieve their full potential in a safe and enabling environment. Razz Tots classes are our parent assisted melody and movement classes for our preschool students, classes last one hour and include a social time at the end for both Tot and Grown-Up! Our Razz Tots classes involve imaginative play, melodies, movement and crafts all of which help our classes meet the Governments National Early Years Guidance. Classes run in 6 week ‘themes’ rather than a full term, with each 6 weeks exploring a different and varied theme.



Independence, confidence & fun

Children in the class by themselves
Classes run for 1 hour usually in the early afternoon straight after school

Razz Minis offers a fun yet informative introduction to the world of performing arts for 4 and 6 year olds.
At this age, children enjoy music and movement in such a natural way it’s a great time for them to begin to explore the world of song, dance and drama.
Each Razz Minis class lasts one hour and is based around 20 minutes each of singing, drama and dance. Classes take place once a week for 36 weeks, divided into three 12 week terms, where possible we aim to stay in line with our local school terms. With no pressure to perform, parents are invited in to celebrate the progress their child has made in our Razz Minis programme – just lots of encouragement, smiles and fun!

“My eldest son has been going to Razzamataz for the last 4 years. He absolutely loves it and he enjoys going every week. HIs little brother and sister joined Razz Tots when they turned 2. Today was their first day at Razz Minis. They went off without crying and their teachers were full of praise for them as they joined in all the activities. I am so proud of them all and so pleased we are part of the Razz Family!”
