Parents whose children attend the Tumble Tots playgroup sessions in Melton have been left disappointed after being told they will end after half-term.

Tomorrow (Friday) will be the last classes for babies and youngsters aged up to three at the Baptist church.

Tumble Tots aims to develop physical skills and positive personaility traits through structured play.

James and Helen Lowe have been taking two-year-old son, Nathaniel, to sessions there since he was a baby. Helen said: “I’ve been taking Nathaniel to Tumble Tots since he was six-months-old and he’s now almost three.

“He absolutely loves it and I feel he has become so much more confident as a result.

“It saddens me that it might not continue, and I feel very strongly that Melton needs activities like this for the children.”

Another mum, Sophie, who takes son Jacob, to classes there, said: “It is really upsetting to think Tumble Tots is going, as it has made such a difference to my son’s confidence and helped him with his balance and climbing skills, but also his social skills.”

The Melton Times has left messages with the organiser of the sessions, but has not had a response.

The Tumble Tots website does not list any sessions in Melton after half-term.

Up to 10 attend each class, but parents were told that was not enough to continue.
