No Public classes are running at present due to the Covid-19 crisis, but we are planning to re-open our face-to-face classes from 21 or 28 September.
However, our Twistin Tinies sessions are available as an online option via our Private Members Area, click here for more information). If you would like to sign up for these – for a £4 weekly fee – please email us at Jacqui@twistintots.co.uk, call or text Jacqui on 07977 578 359, or visit us on Facebook – www.facebook.com/twistintots.
Twistin Tinies is aimed at parents and carers with children aged 0 – 18months (non-walkers). Numbers at these classes are restricted to 10 to ensure social distancing.
We recently combined our programme with another – Baby World & Me – and you can now see elements of both in our innovative and fun classes, making them even more interactive and developmental for your baby!
When our face-to-face classes resume, they will run as follows:
- Wednesdays 12.30-1.30pm
- Little Eaton Village Hall, Vicarage Lane, Little Eaton, Derby, DE21 5AE
We have drafted some Guidance for parents attending face-to-face classes so that they know what to expect. Please click the link to read these.
Here is a short taster video of what you can expect at classes.
When face-to-face classes resume, they will be as follows, and all customers will also receive all the benefits of our Private Members Area in the price of their classes:
- 45 mins of musical and sensory development activity
- 15 minutes “chat” time where parents can ask questions, socialise and hopefully make some life-long friends.
Social distancing will be enforced at classes as much as possible and to minimise sharing of resources, we will be offering a Twistin Tinies Kit Bag of props that you can either purchase or hire from us – or you are welcome to bring your own. Again, details of these are still being finalised, and will be shared with you shortly. (We may also have other props at classes that we may use and then clean). It may be that you will also need to purchase / hire / bring a couple of additional items for each new Term. Cost of the Kit Bag is likely to be in the region of £25 (hire cost £10, with £15 deposit refundable once props returned in good condition).
Class numbers at classes are capped at 10.
- Face-to-face classes – £8 per session. Classes must be paid for in advance and customers must book a half term at a time (usually 6-8 weeks).
- Online classes only (for those customers who are not yet ready to return to face-to-face classes, are unable to secure a space, who cannot attend in face-to-face locations, or who want to access classes in their own time with their partner) – £4 weekly, paid in advance per half term (as above).
- As we are not starting back at the same time as schools this half term, the first block of classes will be slightly shorter than normal (a half term is usually 6-8 weeks, depending on how the school holidays fall) – only 4 or 5 weeks, so the cost will be £32-£40 for our first half term.
- tips and advice on many baby related topics
- recorded version of the class so you will never miss a session again; your partner can also join in with these sessions at home; and you can watch where and when you want
- our weekly baby signs
- a weekly Home Activity – usually something to make to aid baby’s development
- details of how to create a themed sensory exploration area for your baby
- our weekly Information Topic – which may offer advice on weaning, sleeping, baby proofing your home (and lots of other useful baby-related topics).
We also have a Private Facebook group where those attending classes will be able to access ‘specialists’ on certain subjects to get advice etc, and ask questions of and get advice from other parents. (This area is currently under construction but should be available by the time classes resume).
We are currently updating all of our policies etc to ensure we meet new Covid guidelines. All of our updated policies and risk assessments will be posted on our website shortly for you to view should you wish to do so. All Team staff have also attended an Infection Control Course in order to keep all of our customers safe – which is our top priority.
We are looking forward to welcoming you all back soon!
A large Hall with large car park. Baby changing facilities available, Park outside for play after or before class.
