What People Say


I cannot recommend Deirdre enough. Myself and my little 3 month old attended her Tiny moves classes for 0-6 months. Deirdre has so much knowledge and experience and we learned so much. I could confidently play and stimulate my baby appropriately for her age. Also, I knew how to broadly look out for signs Erin was meeting her developmental milestones. Deirdre provided us with play and schedule ideas to take away after each class that really helped. And also answered any of my queries which was so reassuring. She combined all the latest research and her own experience into a very easy to follow manner. The online platform is fantastic and we are looking forward to doing Deirdre's 6-12 month class. Thanks Deirdre 


Completed the Tiny Moves class with my little girl and found it amazing! Deirdre is extremely knowledgeable and a fantastic teacher. Easy to see she loves what she does! Gained so much information, practical tips and confidence to help maximise my daughter’s development. Can’t recommend it highly enough and am looking forward to starting Maestro Moves at 6months.


My daughter and I have participated in Deirdre's Tiny Moves and Maestro moves classes, I also took the Toddler Moves workshop. As a FTM I found the content of these classes invaluable. Everything is entirely backed up by up to date, current research and Deirdre is extremely knowledgeable and practical about how to implement this information in day to day life through play. I found it very reassuring to have a qualified professional to check in with on a weekly basis in relation to the skills associated with child development. I would have no hesitation in recommending Deirdre and her classes.
