Did you know that 95% of the brain is developed by age five?
The good news is that parents and caregivers can support this brain development by establishing secure relationships with their children during these critical early years.
This is why we created Zumbini!
Created in partnership with Zumba and BabyFirst, Zumbini is a unique, effective, and fun early childhood education programme that uses the power of music and movement to promote cognitive, social, emotional and motor skill development for children aged zero to five, all while promoting a strong bond between parent and child.
Zumbini classes range from 30 to 45 minutes and can be offered in a “parent and me” format, in which each child is accompanied by their parent or caregiver, or the “Zumbini for Schools” format, ideal for children aged two to five in a school or daycare setting without their parents or caregivers.
Zumbini’s course curriculum is designed to help children learn through music and play.
Rather than adhere to a strict, goal-oriented curriculum, Zumbini classes are flexibly structured in a way that allows children to participate and explore in the way that comes most naturally to them, ensuring inclusion and effectiveness for visual, auditory and kinesthetic learners.
As we like to say, “Zumbini classes do not teach music, they use music to teach!”.
Throughout the class, children will sing, dance, and play with instruments while bonding with their peers and with their parents or caregivers.
Zumbini also incorporates entirely original music, created by the same Grammy award-winning team responsible for Zumba’s globally recognised songs.
Even parents find themselves hooked on Zumbini music after attending classes with their little ones!
Families who attend Zumbini classes will have the option to take the music home with them by purchasing digital access to their favorite Zumbini album (£4) or a Zumbini Bundle, which includes digital music access along with a corresponding songbook and character toy (£12.50).
For those interested in teaching the Zumbini programme, we offer a virtual training and ongoing instructor membership programme to prepare new instructors to teach Zumbini classes in their area and equip them with the tools they need to plan, market and manage their Zumbini classes whenever and wherever is most convenient for them.
The one-time Zumbini instructor training course costs approximately £230, while the ongoing membership costs is just £33 per month regardless of how many classes are taught.
Included in the monthly membership cost is an indefinite license to teach the Zumbini programme, along with access to all of Zumbini’s original music, curriculum resources, class planning tools, 100+ instructor review videos, social media assets, marketing materials, a class management and payments system and so much more.

Lastly, facilities interested in offering the Zumbini program can have staff members trained and licensed to teach, or can list themselves on the Zumbini Instructor Job Board in order to be paired with an existing instructor in their area.
