Lucy Sparkles’ lessons are always full of fun and they change week by week to keep the children engaged and interested. Children thoroughly enjoy her lessons, learning about different tones of music, different musical instruments and new rhymes and songs.Naz Afsari – Headmistress, Park SW2 Kindergarten

We all absolutely love Katy Sparkles when she comes to our service and now that the sessions are online it’s bringing our little Cubby family back together through Covid. Would recommend Ginny and all of the other amazing Sparkles 1000%Jess- Cubby House on Campus (Acton)

As well as providing activities through music and movement to enrich the children’s experience and development here at nursery, Harry Sparkles brings a real energy to the building. Terribly talented with the array of instruments he can play from saxophone to guitar (to name just a couple!), Harry is the most enthusiastic and animated person I know. He’s our answer to Dick van Dyck and our week wouldn’t be complete without him.Tamysn Parry – Montessori Directress/Owner, Tam’s House

Our children thoroughly enjoy your drama classes which are highly inter-active and encourage both their listening skills and creativity. The lessons are well structured, very much geared to the young age group and a welcome addition to the Early Years Foundation Stage.Julie Cave – Manager, Toots Day Nursery

The session is fun-filled and very interactive, with lively music and instruments. I find it very useful for my baby 7 months.Parent – Maytree Nursery and Children’s Centre

Thanks so much for organising for Sarah Sparkles to come to Olivia’s party on Saturday. Sarah was so lovely and all the kids really enjoyed the entertainment. She had quite a tough job as they are all just turning 2 so their attention span is quite short, but she did an amazing job of keeping them all entertained. Sarah was so friendly and kind and everyone said afterwards what an amazing job she had done.Anna Walters – Mum of Olivia (aged 2), Chiswick

Lucy Sparkles drama classes have enriched our nursery curriculum, broadening the range of skills the children use to communicate.Claudie Judge – Manager, Mount Park Montessori

We were really happy with Jodie Sparkles and her assistant. She was well organised, showed great management skills over the kids and organised some fun and engaging activities. All of the children really enjoyed themselves and the mums and dads (that did stick around to drink the beer and wine on offer) were impressed. Many of them have come up to me since and thanked me for organising a great party with great entertainment. We would definitely recommend you guys and hopefully come back to you again next year. Thanks again!!Roger Bolton – Dad of Mae (aged 6)

I just wanted to write and say thank you to you and Lewis Sparkles for a great time at Lilly and Alfie’s birthday party this week. Lilly was really happy to see Lewis, it was a great surprise and when we asked her what the best bit of her birthday party was she immediately said singing with Lewis. One of the other parents delayed taking her son to pre-school so as he could finish the singing with Lewis as he was having so much fun and I had others crying when their mums said it was time to leave!!
Lewis was so good at involving all the children and how he remembered all their names I don’t know! He managed to make Lilly feel so special and whilst she was a little shy to start with, she was glued to his side… It was great to see! The singing was lots of fun and the children all had a great time.
Please thank him for us, and thank you for arranging it all.Kelly Hunt – Mum of Lilly and Alfie

We would recommend that every nursery have a Lucy Sparkles class. It’s such fun!Claudie Judge – Manager, Mount Park Montessori

The lessons are well structured, very much geared to the young age group and a welcome addition to the Early Years Foundation Stage.Julie Cave – Manager, Toots Day Nursery

Lola and I have been attending Lucy Sparkles dancing classes this term. We get to spend the well structured class dancing, playing and having fun. I am now a dancing Dad and love it. Brilliant! Lola and I recommend Lucy Sparkles without reservation.Roger Jones – Lola’s Dancing Dad, Balham

Ginny and the team at Lucy Sparkles & Friends have been a pleasure to work with since we began collaborating back in 2018. Ginny and the Sparkles are professional, reliable, creative and of course have the most fantastic rapport with children & their families. Ginny is always willing to tailor her sessions to suit the Mint and our coin and education programs. We consistently receive good feedback from participants about the quality of the workshops, and they are quickly becoming one of our most popular public offerings! More recently, Ginny has adapted these workshops to be run online, which again have been extremely well received whilst we cannot run programs onsite. I highly recommend Ginny and her wonderful team – they are a pleasure to work with and leave the children feeling enchanted and inspired!Hannah Webb- The Royal Australian Mint

The children loved the dance session. They were fully engaged using the colourful props. A wonderful experience that they spoke about for days after!Siobhan, Shumaila and Sarah – Pre-school teachers, Toots Day Nursery

Get Along Gang Playgroup really enjoy both the Drama and the Music sessions. Very professional and friendly staff. Thanks Lucy Sparkles!Perihan – Manager, Get Along Gang Playgroup

I like Music Club with Sally Sparkles because I like playing with the egg shakers, the maracas and the monkeys. My favourite song is ‘5 Little Monkeys’.Boy age 3 – Ravenstone Preparatory School

Our children love Callie Sparkles. She is very enthusiastic when she comes and the children are always excited to see her and what she might have in her special bag this week. She keeps things very varied for the children and every week has something new to introduce to them either by an active game or singing with the key board (in a very high pitch which I can not dream of reaching) or even combining the two and covering music and movement.
The toddlers really enjoy her time too I have never seen them sit so well or so close to anyone before, again I think it’s because she changes things up for them and introduces some variety.
The parents have given some really positive feedback about her too as the children go home with their ‘sparkles’ from her telling them all about her.
Sarah Owen – Owner and Manager, Toad Hall Nursery Group

All the parents and children who attend our Sparkles sessions with Sally Sparkles absolutely love them! We have a full session every week with parents queuing up to get in! The children really benefit from Sally’s welcoming, enthusiastic and fun nature and learn through her consistent delivery of fun songs and actions.Blaise McDonald – Children’s Centre Deputy Manager, Bell Lane Children’s Centre

We love having Anna Sparkles deliver her wonderful music classes – she’s become a fantastic addition to our roster of teachers since we started working together a year ago. She is lively, bubbly and fun, and wholeheartedly throws herself into each and every lesson with absolute passion and enthusiasm. Our mums and little ones always look forward to seeing her – it’s no wonder her classes are always full!Laura Lord – Director, Dotty and Jack’s Family Club

A wonderful experience that the children spoke about for days after!Siobhan, Shumaila and Sarah – Pre-school teachers, Toots Day Nursery

Ginny Sparkles customised a series of beautiful face paint options relevant to our event. The children were absolutely mesmerised by her sparkly fairy dress and she was just fantastic with them! There was a big queue for face painting throughout the entire event and the designs were absolutely beautiful!Penelope Wort – Event Organiser for ‘Make Wonderful Things’ craft kit launch

We love Lucy Sparkles because she does nice singing.Child age 3 – Park SW2 Kindergartens

All our children love the music lessons provided by Lucy Sparkles and they especially treasure the ‘sparkles’ given to them at the end of each lesson! Veronica Sparkles and Sarah Sparkles provide calm yet stimulating lessons which engage all the children at Marmalade Bear. It is wonderful to hear the children singing new songs and developing their creative abilities.Hayleigh – Head Teacher, Marmalade Bear School

I like her sparkly skirt.Lily – The Park Gardens Nursery

Just to say a BIG thank you! Callie Sparkles was amazing and did lots of music and dancing. It was a big help to us and the children absolutely loved it! Thanks for organising so last minute.Carla Shohet

We came across Lucy Sparkles recently at a children’s party where she was wonderfully entertaining and engaging the 3 yr olds. The extra surprise was to notice how even the adults attention was captured when Lucy sang – there was chatty background noise and then… silence. It was like magic!Shannon Reed – Mum of Jasper (aged 3)

Our pupils are so captivated by Lucy Sparkles’ sessions that everyday they ask, “is it Lucy Sparkles day today?” Lucy provides brilliant sessions and our pupils and teachers are delighted at the end of each class!The staff from Ecole Cadet Rousselle

Lucy’s approach is similar to my own. It is about quality, not quantity and we have been very pleased with the service we have received.Jane Alway – Manager, Montessori at Brook Green

We recently contacted Lucy Sparkles and Friends to see if we could arrange a fun activity for our children’s Christmas celebrations. From the get-go, Ginny was promptly responsive to our emails and was happy to answer any queries we had and tailor a package to suit.

On the day of our event, we welcomed Teresa, the Christmas Fairy to our early learning centre. All our children and educators thought Teresa was fabulous! Our babies were enchanted by Teresa’s singing and she also won them over with musical instruments and bubbles. Our toddlers and preschoolers were also thoroughly enamored with the Christmas Fairy, with lots of interactive hands-on fun! We thank Lucy Sparkles & Friends for brightening up a cold and wet day!

Only a few months ago we switched to Lucy Sparkles for our weekly music class after using another provider for many years and we are really happy. The children really look forward to Cecily arriving each week with her magic sparkly bag. Cecily has such a lovely voice and the children are totally captivated when she plays her guitar and violin, it fills up the room with such a lovely sound. It is really lovely too that Lucy Sparkles don’t just put on a cd and sing along.Emma St Marthe – Manager, Pipkin’s Patch

Lucy Sparkles is a very upbeat teacher that allows the children to participate in role play at their individual pace. Each class is varied with the use of props to ensure the children are engaged during the sessions.Sarah Roberts – Operations Manager, Baby Room Nurseries

We were recommended Lucy Sparkles by our area manager. The Lucy Sparkles team are very professional, friendly and fun. Our children have built a great relationship with them already. We highly recommend Lucy Sparkles to your school or service.Sanny- Campbell Cottage

Lucy Sparkles is by far the best Baby/Toddler music and dance class there is as not only is it great fun it is also educational. Our daughter, Sophie has been coming to classes since she was crawling and now as a Toddler is even more enthusiastic and is very sad if she has to miss a week. 10 out of 10! We will also hire Lucy Sparkles for Birthday parties too.Jessica and Marq Bailey – Parents of Sophie who attends classes at All Fired Up Dulwich

They are also great fun for children and parents alike!Guiliana Chiappin – Family Outreach Worker, Maytree Nursery and Children’s Centre

Lucy Sparkles is a fabulous teacher. She interacts with the children well and has built a great relationship with our children.

We highly recommend her and her team.Daniella Goodman – Founder and Manager, Little Linguists Nursery School

It has broadened their imaginations and they enjoy all the sounds and movements each session brings. Thank you so much from all the teachers and children.Miss Beccy – Classroom Leader, Eden Montessori Nursery School

Lucy Sparkles has been providing our Child Care Service with dance and music lessons for the last couple of years. The children thoroughly enjoy each and every session and Friday is their favourite day of the week. The teachers that we have had at the Service have been professional, kind and delightful in every way. Each lesson is filled with lots of fun things and always ends with sparkles (glitter) for each child. Lucy Sparkles is a wonderful way to end our week and we look forward to continuing with the program in 2022.Leanne Crisp- Precious Momentz (QBN)

An enriching and enjoyable experience that our children look forward to participating in each week!Siobhan – Pre-school teacher, Toots Day Nursery

When the children here the doorbell going on a Wednesday morning they all shout for Ella Sparkles and scream with excitement. Ella is full of such enthusiasm and really keeps all the children engaged from start to finish. Bluebells Nursery wouldn’t be the same without her and she has really helped build the children’s confidence in singing and dancing and we would recommend her to all nurseries.Joanna and Kate – Managers, Bluebells Nursery School

There is too much to say. Every Thursday he wakes up and becomes happy. He sees the building and starts to smile.Parent – Maytree Nursery and Children’s Centre

I love singing and the actions.Shona – The Park Gardens Nursery

I like Music Club because of dancing and shaking and playing games with the parachute. I get glitter when I’m a good girl. I like the song ‘Stand Up Sit Down’.Girl age 3 – Ravenstone Preparatory School

I wish I had a time machine so that Yvette Sparkles could be the entertainer at my own 4th birthday party!Carl Pappenheim – Thomas’ grown-up friend

Ben Sparkles has been with The Park Gardens Nursery for more than a year as a peripatetic singing teacher. He takes the sessions very seriously and is able to manage children of different ages in groups of twelve. He uses a variety of instruments, a parachute and lots of visual aids. Some of the songs are original and they are mixed with familiar ones. He has an excellent record of attendance and is always punctual.
Ben always shows care and commitment in all his work with the children and in turn they love having him here. He will go out of his way to ensure the children in his care are safe and secure at all times. Ben would be an asset to any nursery class. He conducts himself well in his duties within the setting and is professional, trustworthy and beyond reproach.Helen Wiffen – Nursery Manager, The Park Gardens Nursery School

I just wanted to say that Jodie Sparkles was totally brilliant today. Everyone said how entertainers often don’t work out as they can’t hold children’s attention. Not so with Jodie! She had the little ones captivated and everyone thought she was fab. Mummys and little ones alike. Thanks so much!Jo Tauscher

Thank you so much Ginny and Anna for the fantastic job you did entertaining the kids at Louis’s first birthday party. The kids were utterly mesmerised! Everyone had a blast, kids of all ages.
I can’t imagine having another birthday party without you guys there! All the parents commented on how great the party was, especially the cowgirls! Thank you very much again.
