Tuesday 1.30pm-2pm

Many little things light up hungry little minds. 

Kids take everything in, and even the smallest things you do with them can make a big difference. They love it when you chat, play and read with them, even when they’re too young to understand everything. We understand that due to the coronavirus outbreak, you and your children are spending more time at home and you might be looking for a bit more inspiration for things to do. This group offers some simple, fun ideas and activities you can do at home as a family.

Thursday 10am-10.30am

We all know children are always on the move and can't keep still, so why not come along to our new interactive Zoom sessions. It will be a simple, fun and fast paced group that the whole family can get involved with, (we're no Joe Wicks) with a variety of yoga, sticky kids dancing and actions songs. The group will help to burn off some of that excess energy (and food) during lockdown.

Tuesday 11am-12pm

Baby massage offers a special one to one experience for both mother and baby through the use of massage and reflexology techniques. Baby massage has many proven benefits, such as; aiding digestion and relieving some reflux and colic symptoms, as well as improving babies sleep patterns. The class sizes will be small and delivered through Zoom, with qualified members of staff for gentle guidance over a five week course.

Monday 9.30am-11.30am or Wednesday 9.30am-11.30am

Group Triple P is a parenting programme, but it doesn’t tell you how to be a parent. It's more like a toolbox of ideas.

You choose the strategies you need. You choose the way you want to use them. It's all about making Triple P work for you. The three Ps in "Triple P" stand for "Positive Parenting Programme" which means your family life is going to be much more enjoyable.

Thursday 1pm-2pm

Zoom Babies will be delivered with the support from the Health Visiting Team. It is an interactive group with stories, singing and simple activities that can be recreated at home such as treasure baskets, musical instruments, shakers and sensory items. It is also an opportunity for parents to ask questions, speak to other parents as well as receiving those important Public Health messages. 

Each week the staff focus on topics such as: 

  • breast feeding support
  • safer sleeping
  • weaning
  • safety in the home
  • bath time
  • tummy time

Wednesday 1pm-1.30pm

Incorporating the Hungry Little Minds Campaign, this group will show off your child's singing voice and musical talents. Whether that be playing the drums with pans and spoons, rice bottle shakers and tissue box guitars, we all have a bit of rhythm. We will be bringing together a selection of old favourite nursery rhymes as well as introducing you to some new ones whilst having fun.

Monday 10am-11am

Are you an expectant parent? Are there things you would like to know about caring for your new baby? Have you got lots of questions?
