Sensory Baby Class News
Due to popular demand Whippersnappers will be providing a second weekly baby sensory session on Thursdays which will take place on our second site College lodge in Dulwich Park.
Summer term sensory baby classes start Wed 15th April 2015
Wednesday – 11.30am – 1.30pm at Brockwell Lido – Tutor Penny Khader
Thursdays – 11.30am – 1.30pm at College Lodge – Tutor Katherine Gray.
Our sensory baby classes are designed for new borns to crawlers and last for 2 hours. We provide free tea and coffee, a chance for parents/carers to meet up and socialise and provide a 45 minute music session with fully trained Whippersnapper music tutors. We include African drumming, sensory lighting , props, baby signing and a variety of different activities for babies and grown ups.
Once your child reaches the crawling stage and becomes more mobile we would suggest you join our mixed baby and toddler classes which run across both our sites every day of the week.
Both our sites are very different.
Brockwell lido is where we began 21 years ago! This site is more theatrical with a stage and full lighting rig and sound system. It is a great party venue and can be booked for parties during weekends. There is the Brockwell lido pool side café for a coffee before the class or lunch afterwards. This site is also very easily accessible as it is near Herne Hill junction with lots of bus routes and Herne Hill over ground station.
College Lodge in Dulwich park is a Victorian Park Keeper’s Lodge. In 2010 Whippersnappers fund raised £250,000 to convert the building into a fully accessible community arts centre. Many children, young people and adults with disability are now benefiting from activities we hold at this fabulous venue. Activities include after school clubs, holiday play schemes, Independent Living Skills, Art and Drama Therapy and creative courses for adults with learning disabilities. The site has a beautiful garden with a log cabin as well as an indoor dining area, upstairs workshop space and therapy rooms. College Lodge is just to your left as you enter Dulwich Park opposite Dulwich Picture Gallery. There are plenty of cafés and restaurants in Dulwich Village for Lunch or The pavilion Café situated inside the Park. College Lodge is also a very popular party venue on weekends.
