New Born Baby Classes

Classes are suitable for babies from birth to 4 months.

Whippersnappers are running sensory classes for newborn babies and their parents and carers. Classes are suitable for babies from birth to 4 months. Classes are designed to be welcoming and relaxing for both baby and their grown-up. Parents and carers are offered teas and coffees on arrival and encouraged to chat and get to know one another. We then provide a 30-minute workshop where you will learn baby finger rhymes, baby songs and lullabies. We will provide live music to accompany your singing, an African drumming section, dancing with baby, parachute play and bubbles. The whole session lasts one hour and costs £50 for a 5-week course.

Brockwell Lido
Friday – 1.30pm to 2.30pm.

We do have limited drop-in spaces available each week, please contact adavey@whippersnappers.org to book.

If you have a group of 10 friends who would like to attend a bespoke blocked booking class, please contact adavey@whippersnappers.org.
