Testimonials

Mindfulness relaxation is excellent for teachers too. The hot air balloon story is excellent after a busy evening spent marking, and one I'd definitely recommend for class use at perhaps the end of a PE session, or any time during the school day to renew focus!
Helen Plester, Art Teacher and Consultant
Absolutely fantastic. Our daughter struggles relaxing after crazy days at school but the mindfulness relaxation has helped her so much. She also loves everything about magic mountain. She talks about Cat and John as if they are her friends. We would recommend this company to everyone!
Mrs Ashley, Working mum
Out of all of the nativities they have performed this was the one they enjoyed the most, the songs really stood out and the variety was brilliant! We really felt the children were able to get excited about the music and that they wanted to learn taking ownership of their parts in each performance.
Mrs Stanley – Headteacher, Charnwood Primary Academy
"Magic Mountain Creative provided us with an easy to follow and fantastic sounding Christmas Nativity for our dance and drama school. It was brilliant for children to experience some acting and singing and we were able to allocate lines that children were comfortable with.  Totally achievable for children from the age of 6, we even had children in secondary school taking part too.  The songs were varied and the harmonies worked well for everyone.  We can't wait to perform it in December!"
Georgia Holloway, Dance and Drama teacher
