Classes in Allestree

No Public classes are running at present due to the Covid-19 crisis.

However, we are running our Twistin Tinies sessions via Zoom on Tuesday afternoons.

Until 8 May, these sessions are free. Thereafter, sessions will be £3.50 per session. To join these sessions, you must book and pay in advance for 4 consecutive sessions at a time (so a cost of £14).

(This does not apply to customers who were already customers at the time of Lockdown, who had already paid for a number of classes. These customers can attend any weeks they wish until their money “in the bank” is used up. Once this credit has been used, however, they must also book 4 consecutive sessions if they wish to continue with sessions. If these customers decide to attend a Zoom session and are admitted to that session however, their account total will be debited, even if they decide to leave the session before it has finished.)

New sessions may be introduced on different days and at different times if we ascertain there is a demand and once you have paid, if other sessions are introduced, you will be able to transfer to the session on the day and time of your choice, if a new alternative suits you better. For more information, call or text Jacqui on 07977 578 359.

Here is a short video of the type of thing that you can expect at classes.

Our musical baby development class is  for non-walkers only.

We have recently taken over another baby business – Baby World & Me – which had been operating in Allestree, and have combined it with our established offer, making our classes even better! We follow a theme each week – ranging from Under the Sea, to Arctic, Going to the Seaside, Enchanted Castle and Safari – and offer stimulating and innovative activities which are designed to develop baby’s skills. We cover hand-to-eye co-ordination, gross and fine motor skills, speech and language development, tummy time, cause and effect, touch and visual tracking and many more areas. 

Within each class we also have our Natural Exploration Area, which is our “break out” activity and gives parents the chance to chat and swap experiences, and babies the chance to explore lots of new props, sights and textures relevant to the weekly theme.

Twistin Tinies is aimed at parents and carers with children aged 0 – 18months (non-walkers).  Numbers at these classes are restricted to 20 to ensure intimacy and allow parents to make new friends. Click on Twistin Tinies in the top Menu link to find out more about classes.

You have to book and pay in advance for these classes, but we do offer 3 x trial classes for £15. Please call Jacqui on 07977 578359 to reserve your trial sessions.
