Weekly Classes & Groups (0-5 years) Oxford

Art, Sensory, Developmental & Messy

Our original Baby College® parent and baby development classes help parents gain an insight into their baby’s development from birth onwards and learn a carefully designed range of physical, multi-sensory and cognitive games and exercises which can be enjoyed together in class and at home.

Age groups:

Infants (0-9 months) – offer an insight into baby development to increase your confidence and understanding of your growing baby.  All our fun activities are suitable from birth with the exercises progressing as your baby grows.

Toddlers (9-18 months) – your older baby is now fascinated with the world around them so in this group additional learning themes are introduced and new skills are practiced.  Activities promote language, social skills and body awareness.

Juniors (18-36 months) – our special Junior programme is even more active, more emphasis is placed on encouraging confidence in physical and social skills and in supporting increased independence with fun and stimulating games.

Baby Massage – a series of four practical sessions for babies 0-6 months, including songs and movements.
