Will classes be the same as pre Covid times?

We currently just one large sensory area with mats spaced out to allow for space and comfort..

The class will be 50 minutes long and will still be in 3 parts, starting with our Hello song, then sensory activities, followed by a short break from structured activities where you remain on your mats but can chat to other adults whilst babies rest, feed or play with the lovely equipment provided. We will then finish with another section of sensory activities and our wave goodbye song. As always classes will have a huge amount of variety , different every week and some wonderful themed sessions too!
