​Cindylou loves working with children of all ages and abilities – she is a bubbly, energetic performer, who often uses handmade felt puppets, musical instruments and props from her “suitcase of curiosities”.

​A typical school day will consist of 4 – 6 sessions that are either 30 minutes or 45 minutes long, depending on the age and needs of the children. Cindylou always provides a timetable for the day, bespoke to each setting. Sessions begin at 9:30 and usually end at 3:00. Have you got a group of children that would benefit from a small group session which could mean you could use some of your PP funding towards the costs.

Why not get together with schools in your cluster or federation, booking adjacent days, thus saving on costs. ​All sets can be adapted according to time constraints. If you don’t see what you want then please contact Cindylou to discuss your needs.
