Childhood Studies graduate launches music and movement classes for little ones
Emma Renouf, a graduate of the BA (hons) Childhood Studies degree at City College Norwich, has launched Spinning Tots – providing weekly music and movement sessions for 6 months to 5-year-olds at locations in and around Norwich.
The mum-of-three made the decision to set up her own business because of her passion for working with pre-school children and their parents, and her first-hand experience of the many benefits that music and movement brings to children’s learning and development.
“I really enjoy working with children and parents. I’ve seen how music and movement support children’s learning and development, and it’s something that’s fun for the parents too."
“I find it really rewarding to see parents and children interacting. Personally I find it really enjoyable – and if you enjoy what you’re doing then I think your passion comes through."
Ms Renouf, who has managed a successful local play and music franchise, and worked across both pre-school and older age groups, says that her degree experience helped give her the confidence to set up on her own.
“I decided to do the degree because I wanted to further my knowledge, to help with my job at the time. Doing the degree has given me the confidence to set up my own business and I am really excited to have now launched Spinning Tots.”
