Thank you so much for the session you did for the National Childminders Association at Jump.  I think all the children enjoyed themselves and were able to join in even though most of them were not welsh speakers - they certainly enjoyed the musical instruments.  We would love to use you again in the future as part of our role is to encourage childminders in Cardiff to use welsh languiage in their settings and we help encourage this through songs and rhymes. Look forward to speaking to you in the near future.

Many Thanks once again.

I just wanted to say a huge thanks to you for the welcome and the happy times that Chloe and I had  at the sessions.  I really looked forward  to coming each week.  It was great to feel included as a Welsh learner as I'm too shy to try speaking it and  going to other Welsh based activities where learners are not really catered for.  It also really helped me to get to know other mums from the local school which was really nice as I felt then that I could chat to them there as well rather than just saying hello.September 2010 lesley says:
I have been taking my granddaughter to Hei-di-Ho in Whitchurch since Stephanie first began this group. My granddaughter is almost 3 yrs old now, was just under 12 mths old when we first went along. Being her grand mother and not being a welsh speaker I was nervous about attending, but there was no need. Stephanie put me at ease straight away, it was very welcoming. We've been having fun ever since, both of us have made new friends along the way too. My grandadughter will be starting school in January and I know we will both miss this happy fun session each Monday morning.  

Thanks Stephanie!!

 

I take my 2 year old grandson to Hei-di-ho and he really enjoys it and asks if we can go and see Stephanie (who runs the class). He will be going to a Welsh school so I think the songs are a good introduction to the language and, being children's songs are very simple and a good way for me as a non Welsh speaker to learn the basics also. I find it a very friendly relaxed atmosphere, sometimes I stay and have a coffee and a chat at the end of the session. I like that fact that payment is weekly per session. I find Stephanie very friendly and approachable and very enthusiastic about what she does.

My son is 18 months and has been going to the Whitchurch group since he was about 8 months old. and he absolutely loves it. Now I am back at work, his grandma takes him and while she isn't a welsh speaker she really enjoys going and they have both learnt lots of songs together. Stephanie is very enthusiastic and the classes are completely bi-lingual (although the songs are in welsh obviously)and there is a good mix of both fluent welsh speaking and welsh learner parents/carers.  It's great value too as the sessions are twice as long as other music groups but the same price and there is a chance at the end to chat with other mums, dads and grandmas and practice your welsh. no herding you out the door quickly after half an hour before the next group like some other groups  Whether you are first language welsh or you want to introduce your child to the welsh language and music in a fun and informal setting (and learn some yourself) then I would recommend this group!!
