Classes in Darley Abbey

No Public classes are running at present due to the Covid-19 crisis. However, we are hoping to resume face-to-face classes week commencing 21 or 28 September.

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. Click on Twistin Tinies in the top Menu link to find out more about classes.

We have recently taken over another baby business – Baby World & Me – which had been operating in locally 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.

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

Once they resume, we will be running a face-to-face class at Darley Abbey Village Hall on

  • Thursdays 11am – 12 noon

If you are not yet ready to return to face-to-face classes, you can sign up to our Online Only offer, Click here for details.

Our face-to-face classes will follow the structure below:

  •  45 minutes of musical fun and sensory development activity for baby
  •  15 minutes of “chat” time where parents can ask questions of each other, and of the Class Leader, get advice and hopefully make some life-long friends

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. Click here for details of the Kit Bag.

Our Online Only offer will be 40-45 minutes of musical fun in your home. using props that you can either buy from us, or provide your own. Some activities may be slightly different for the Online Only option.

  • Class numbers will be capped at 10 (8 at Horsley Woodhouse) to ensure social distancing


Face-to-face classes will be £8 per session. This must be paid in advance for each half term (6-8 weeks, depending on when the School Holidays fall). 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. 

For this fee, in addition to our face-to-face class, you will also receive access to the online Twistin Tinies Private Members Area, where you will be able to access a range of  tips and advice on many baby related topics, as well as a recorded version of the class so you will never miss a session again. Click the link for more details. 

Alternatively, you can sign up for Online Only classes for £4 weekly, also payable in advance per half term. If you do this, you get access to the Private Members Area and an online class there, as well as all of the other Members benefits.

We also have a Private Facebook group where those attending classes, or signed up for Online Only 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!
