Mini Athletics Hull & East Riding was launched by the parents of 2 young girls in September 2019 who are passionate about getting children active and interested in sport from an early age. The classes are designed to get kids active, healthy, interacting with each other and hopefully grow a love for sport, as well as making use of all that boundless energy.
It is an athletics based class which develops all core skills – running, jumping and throwing – the foundation of all sports which can help children go on to do various sports as well as athletics. At 5 different venues our area:
Classes are £6.50 per session. First class free! For more information and to book a class, please visit their webpage here, find them on Facebook here, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 01482 420230. Also provide kids birthday parties.
My Baby Can Dance and My Newborn Can Dance is an award winning movement to music, pre school activity with early years education. Your little ones 1st steps to learning! In a weekly session we combine movement to music with activities, singing and musical instruments, numbers, colours, phonics and shapes also looking at topics such as the world around us and health & hygiene and road safety for children. Hull classes are run by Janine –
Our Toddler Climb sessions are the perfect opportunity for your pre-schoolers to enjoy some of the older kids fun! These slower paced sessions, allow your Under 5’s the chance to try out any of our climbs. And when they’ve had enough they can head over to soft play. It’s an informal climbing session – so if you’re doing the school run with an older sibling, there’s no rush to be with us at 9am prompt – although the climbing needs to take place before 10.30am Friday or 10am on a Sunday. Your entrance fee covers a session lasting an hour and a half.
We recommend that Toddlers should be able to walk and weigh a minimum of 22lbs to take part.
Sling fit mama is a class combining fitness, toning and strength, it will help to strengthen all the muscles weakened by pregnancy and childbirth. The classes are carefully structured to have your baby in a sling throughout the duration, so it is great for bonding with baby and stealing a quick kiss.
There are obviously no nursery fees or guilt of leaving your baby… you can actually do something for YOU that benefits you both. Your teacher is also a baby wearing peer support worker, so is on hand to help with any sling needs.
