Baby Sensory sessions running across the Hull and East Riding Area for babies from 0-13 months. Award-winning, sensory-rich development classes designed to support you and your baby from birth. Regular exposure to an incredible range of sounds, smells, sights, textures, music, dance, signing and massage all help rapidly develop the brain in your baby’s first year. We’ve done the research; so you can enjoy the fun.
Climbing sessions for the ‘Under 5’s’ runs on Fridays and Sundays at 9am (all year round not just term time).
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.
Baby Story Play (6 Months—2 Years): Dipping tiny toes into our world of stories, words and sounds, our unique sessions are a multisensory blend of Storytelling, puppets, bubbles and movement to music. Each week we will explore a brand new story, unique to Debutots, through sounds, actions and imagination!
Early Years Drama (2-4 Years): Debutots interactive storytelling and dramatic play classes nurture creativity, stretch imagination and grow confidence whilst promoting communication, language and literacy skills. Each week we will explore a brand new story, unique to Debutots. The children’s creative responses are then facilitated by a skilled Debutots practitioner into an imaginative group retelling.
