Nature Babies begins with a baby/ toddler yoga session of around 20-30 minutes. Enjoy swinging, rolling and stretching with your baby, before exploring the under 2s room, full of lovely wooden and natural toys and treasure baskets. Craft activity for adults, too.

The perfect group for small people. Beginning with an ‘invitation to play’ based around a particular theme, followed by songs with gentle sensory activities which relate to the theme. Babies can then explore the rest of our Under 2s room, with treasure baskets, natural and wooden toys.

Our 5 week baby massage & yoga course teaches a full body massage which you can share with your baby ; as well as baby yoga songs and movements which are fantastic for boosting baby’s sensory development. Baby Massage is an ancient, relaxing activity for both baby and caregiver, with a whole host of benefits. Best for non-mobile babies.

Holistic Toddlers is a wonderful, nurturing group, based around the seasons. Each week has a different seasonal theme, around which we have a craft and story. We also include breadmaking at the start of each session (or sometimes, depending on our theme, we make biscuits or similar); free play with our high quality wooden toys; and a seasonal song circle.

Make the mess at Family Garden and enjoy sharing cooking with your toddler. Peel, chop, grate, knead and roll your ingredients, before having a play with story and songs and sharing the meal together as a group.

Babysign is a wonderful skill to share with your baby, allowing them to communicate before speech. We use BSL signs; and learn through songs and rhymes, with parachute games, puppets, musical instruments and more, for a fun class, with lots of singing, rhyming and signing.

Those first few months can be a whirlwind! Meet other new mums in a mums-only circle, so you can be honest and open and honest, while sharing the highs and lows of the early days of motherhood. Learn more about baby development, coping with colic and crying, finding time for yourself and more in this course led by Sophie- mum of three, breastfeeding peer supporter, doula, babywearing consultant, baby massage & yoga instructor and 10 year worker with babies and toddlers.

Seedlings is a group for mums only, to aid honest and open discussion about all areas of motherhood. Aimed at mums themselves, this is your opportunity to explore your identity as a mother and a woman. Discussions and activities are guided by the group.

Busy Bees is perfect for busy toddlers. Including messy play, explorative art, sensory and heuristic play; plus garden play, water play and more! We also include a story and songs linking to the theme, at the end of our sessions.

Story Explorers is a lovely session, where your toddler can move, bend, play and sing as we explore a story through movement, yoga, dance, music and song.

Can you leap like a frog, shake your sillies out and roll like a piggie? This fun session for toddlers is full of songs, music and movement.

Musical Moments with Mike, is a beautiful hour of music and song, with real instruments, led by the wonderful Mike. Please book this class directly (click the pic to head to his facebook page).
