Geraldine Mannion started Tick Tock in May 1992 in Islington London. It is a children's music group for under 5's run by professionally trained and highly experienced actors and singers operating 36 weeks of the academic year.
In each 45-minute session we sing a selection of nursery rhymes and songs old and new, with a different programme each week. The songs and rhymes are dramatised and linked by a narrative thread. The children are invited to act out some of the characters in the songs, or interact with props and animals.
As well as Islington N1 there are groups at Crouch End N8, Muswell Hill, Tring and Berkhamsted, Hitchin, Harpenden and St Albans Herts.
We would like to congratulate Rachel Farrow the leader of Tick Tock in Harpenden on winning "Best Local Activity for the under 5's 2010" awarded by Whatson4 Ltd.

There are many reasons for using music and rhymes with young children.
Everyone can join in at their own level and pace, whether it is just listening, clapping hands or doing simple actions.We would like mums, dads, carers, nannies and grannies to sing along and encourage their children to join in our unique blend of music, drama, movement, poems and participation.
