Our Baby & Toddler Groups

We host a huge variety of Baby & Toddler Groups at Family Garden, Exeter.

With a range of flexible and affordable sign-up or drop in options, there is something for everyone- whether you like singing, moving, babysigning, getting messy or even cooking together or getting muddy in the garden!

Holistic Toddlers

A seasonal group for 18 month-5 year olds, with breadmaking, seasonal crafts, beautiful wooden toys, seasonal songs and story.

Little Shoots

A calm, gentle group for Under 2s. A different, weekly, themed ‘invitation to explore’, followed by free play with treasure baskets, wooden and natural toys & songs linked to theme.

Little Cooks Club

Cook with your small person- exploring kneading, mixing, grating, chopping and more. Free play while food cooks, then eating together as a group. All food is vegetarian.

Craft & Play

Aimed at adults, but babies and children very welcome to come along and play in the playspace while we craft at the tables. Range of crafts, including felting, painting, sewing, origami, wood & clay.


Fantastic for boosting communication and bonding, encouraging and developing speech and vocabularies and lessening frustration. We use mainly BSL signs and also incorporate parachutes, musical instruments, mirrors, puppets and more as we learn to sign through songs and rhymes!

Baby Massage & Yoga

A 5 week course where you will learn a full baby massage routine. Excellent for bonding, relaxation, relief of constipation and tummy aches. We also learn baby yoga songs, stretches and movements. Best for non-mobile babies.

Busy Bees

Messy Play, explorative art, heuristic and sensory play… all based around a theme. Followed by story and songs related to the theme.

Gardening Group

Planting seeds, bulbs, fruit & veg. Plus, playing with mud, water, leaves; making flower potions, painting with mud, decorating flowerpots etc…. For all ages, adults with babies welcome too!

Hello World

Movement class for young children, with yoga, dance, stretching, moving, singing, parachutes, instruments and more. Exploring stories with our bodies!

Baby Yoga

Fantastic for developing your baby or toddler’s proprioceptive and vestibular sensory systems, we will stretch, swing, roll and fly as we sing songs, play with instruments, parachutes, puppets and other gentle sensory stimuli.
