We’re very proud to say that the Nursery Rhythm Kit won a Silver Award at the 2013 Practical Preschool Awards – you can see what the judges said in the first section below. The Kit contains a great selection of 15 percussion instruments that don’t take up much space and pack away neatly into the bamboo storage basket with the big shaman drum sitting on top. Also included are a full set of 30 Music Cards with hints and ideas for 25 musical play sessions and a “What it’s called and where it’s from” card, that will give you a little background on each of the instruments in the kit. Up to 14 children can play together with an adult and it’s brilliant for around 7 children at a time. For 3 years and over.
N.B. For Early Years settings please note:
A. Our products are musical instruments, not toys, and should always be used under the supervision of responsible educationalists and carers and not left with children under 3 years of age to play with by themselves.
B. Please follow the simple “Good Practice” guidelines set out in the “Traditionally” section below.
For SEN settings: please put a note with your order to indicate that it’s needed for an SEN setting, so that we know to include the relevant materials.
Please note that for reasons of stock availability we may need to make the occasional substitution of the more minor pack components. If so, we’ll always ensure suitability/equivalence and we’ll always clear any significant changes with you in advance.
If you are looking for some instruments for a medium-sized group of children who like to make a noise and enjoy using beaters, this is a good set of exciting and rhythmic instruments consisting of a variety of percussive and interesting sounds. There are two types of drums, a metal cowbell, scrapers, a pitched chime, woodblocks and clackers. There are several pairs of instruments which tend to encourage friends to choose the same instrument and work together. Nearly all the instruments have a beater which very young children love to use and when presented with instruments with and without beaters, will nearly always choose the ones with beaters. Using beaters, especially one in each hand, helps young children to develop quite precise co-ordination and a sense of anticipation. Because the instruments are very different to one another, your children will enjoy exploring and swapping the instruments with each other. A large, flat-drum called a Shaman drum is included not only for your children to play but also so you can guide, lead or even take charge of the group if wanted. The judges at the 2013 Practical Preschool Awards gave the Nursery Rhythm Kit 85.1 points out of a maximum possible of 100.
We work with a small number of specialist logistic companies to deliver your order quickly and economically. The delivery method varies, depending on your location and the size of the order, as follows:
Orders up to 5kg – Courier 2 to 3 working day delivery. This would typically include books, smaller instruments, percussion baskets and djembes up to 40cm.
Orders over 5kg – Courier, next working day delivery. Most orders are sent this way.
Large orders – Pallet service, 3 to 5 working day delivery. Used for large orders and those with more fragile contents.
- Above timings are from dispatch date. Time from placing your order will usually be one or two days longer, depending on the order and destination.
- Delivery to offshore or Highland addresses may take longer and may cost more than to UK mainland addresses and we’ll quote and agree the costs with you in advance. Please note that in these cases it’s fine to go ahead and place your order, and there’s no obligation on your part until the delivery costs have been quoted and accepted by you.
- For some destinations, where a courier service isn’t available, we may send by Royal Mail instead.
Orders weighing less than 1kg and not too bulky – Post Office Airmail. This would include books and smaller percussion instruments.
Orders weighing more than about 1kg and large orders – international courier or pallet service. We’ll obtain competitive quotes and agree these with you in advance.
Please note that it’s fine to go ahead and place your international order prior to confirming shipping costs, and that there’s no obligation on your part until the delivery costs have been quoted and accepted by you. Payment for international orders, including shipping costs, is required before dispatch of the goods.
Please let us know straight away if anything arrives damaged or otherwise in a substandard condition and we’ll be happy to replace it, refund the cost or provide you with an alternative product to your satisfaction. Speed is of the essence here as most courier companies will only accept responsibility for damage in transit if the damage is reported within 24 hours of delivery.
In the event of damage, please take photographs, including any damage to the packaging, and email these to us ASAP.
Similarly, if an instrument develops a fault within 12 months of purchase in the course of normal use (though excluding fair wear and tear), please let us know, and we’ll replace it or refund the cost. It’s also very helpful for us to see photos of the issue as this gives us solid information for changing the design, the production method or the packing materials.
But please do contact us before returning any damaged or substandard items. Once we’ve approved their return, please send to: Drums for Schools Limited, 21 Shaftesbury Avenue, Burton Joyce NG14 5GL
We really appreciate your feedback in the case of faults (or if you think an instrument could be improved in any way) and we take all such feedback very seriously indeed.
