Aidan for Tumble Tots!, The Curve

Thanks to Aunty Zurin and little Harith!.. It was a nice feeling looking at the kids in the kindergarten, and I was wondering whether there is a proper place for kids under 1 year old to get exposed and socializing with other kids their age.. Well, i know that there are kindergartens that do take our tots, staying for few hours, but normally if the mother is working, and ofcoz my case is so way different! Since i am no longer in this venture life of working, i have all the time in the world to look after my November boy, and i think to get him into TUMBLE TOTS is oh so a brilliant idea! Yup, thanks to Aunty Zurin and Harith, as looking at Harith's potential and progressions after attending few of the classes, make me realize that Tumble Tots is just the place that i am longing for.. Hmmm.. Great! :)

Since it was located in The Curve, Damansara, it will be marvellous! After classes, Aidan and mummy can spend our times together, there.. Isn't it wonderful? Hehehe.. Well, i know it is still early to plan all these, but early preparation is a great plan right? Hmmm.. everything need to start at some point.. Hehhe.. In my case, browsing for the classes and the programmes right now, and gather all information about it.. :P Through my research, Tumble Tots rocks!

Tumble Tots have few programmes like Gymbabes.. Tumble Tots.. Gymbobs and Right Start! Super! :)
