I am endeavouring to keep the listings as up to date as possible but please check with organisers first, thanks for your understanding.
Play With Phonics is a new and exciting class launched 7th January 2020! Phonics is an important skill for children to learn, to help them to speak, read and write, all of which are encouraged in the class. 2 sessions: Toddlers (1 year – 2.5 years) and Pre-schoolers (2.5 years – 5).
I follow the Letters and Sounds Curriculum. The Babies will learn phase 1 phonics, and Toddlers and Pre-school will learn phase 1 and 2. This is done through lots of fun ways; stories, action songs, doh-disco, action games, sensory equipment, sound lotto, parachute, musical instruments, creative activities, role play and so much more! Each session is varied and focused on a phoneme (letter sound) each week, with most activities based around that. Term time only. Current classes:
I will be going to other areas soon – please express your interest for other areas.
Booking essential. For more info and bookings contact Karen on 07736053838, email firstname.lastname@example.org or follow her on facebook here.
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.
