Tots Play offers a complete programme of classes, resources and more to give you the confidence and inspiration needed to play, connect and enjoy special time with your baby or toddler in ways which will enhance their development.
Our classes are suitable for children from birth to around 4 years, with a range of sessions aimed at different age groups. With the exception of our Baby Development course, which runs at regular intervals, all courses are ongoing so you can join at any time throughout the year.'
Attending classes is a great opportunity to enjoy focused time with your little one as you cuddle, play, connect and make new discoveries together every week.
You will also pick up lots of ideas to enable you to continue the fun (and learning) at home, so get ready to leap, laugh and learn together!

8 Weeks to Crawling
For a fun, interactive, play session that you and your baby will both enjoy come and join us at Discovery Tots. Each week you and your baby will enjoy focused time together, signing, bouncing, exploring and playing together. No two classes are the same and with so many new things for your baby to experience each week, we often get told that babies sleep very well after their Discovery Tots class!
We know that babies learn best when they use their whole body and all their senses, and each 40 minute class is filled with lots of different activities to stimulate, delight and encourage development in a relaxed, loving and fun environment.
Even at such a young age a structured playtime, which the classes provide, helps a child to feel secure, giving the confidence to explore, learn and grow, making development more rapid and learning more fun. It is also a great place to start building social skills, first by watching and later through interaction with the other babies.
Crawling to 2 years
Once your little one is on the move they will want to explore, make friends, and play, play, play! At the fun-filled world of Social Tots they will find all this and more.
During each 40 minute weekly class, crawlers and toddlers will benefit from a structured, but fast paced play environment where each child's personality is encouraged to shine through, as we bring out their love of play and exploration in ways which will stimulate the development of both body and mind. '
When the whole world is an adventure waiting to be discovered, it can be tricky to keep these little explorers still for long, so activities are kept short, interactive and varied throughout each session.
With the emphasis on fun, our carefully designed programme includes a mix of structured and free play activities, both so important for this age group, providing plenty of opportunity for Tots to build the skills they will need to prepare for the challenges of preschool and beyond, along with their own creativity, independence and early social skills.
For ages 2 to 4 years
Physical Play and Pre-Riding Skills. Building the Skills for a Lifetime of Action!
Balance, co-ordination, gross and fine motor skills are all vital for your toddler’s development and form the basis for fitness and sports of all kinds.
Using a range of fun games, songs and equipment from bean bags to balance bikes, your little one will have the chance to develop and practice all these skills and more, challenging themselves in lots of different ways.
From early riding skills on our toddler size balance bikes to learning how to stretch and relax, with simple yoga and massage, Action Tots will boost your toddler’s body awareness, confidence, fitness and social skills as you laugh and play together.
Each 45 minute class includes a number of activities based around 4 skill stations:
Body - working on co-ordination, strength, and gross motor skills
Brain - helping to develop focus, concentration and fine motor skills
Balance - the key skill for all types of movement, especially learning to ride a bike
Bikes - exploring, handling and gaining the skills and confidence to start to ride our balance bikes
With songs, games, stretches, parachute play and bubbles to ensure lots of fun as well as learning!
