At Baby Swimmers we follow the Starfish Awards, so little ones can gain water confidence and build a foundation to swim unaided in the future. We play games and sing songs which are skill related and also teach water safety skills so they can learn to swim back to the side, hold on and climb out when they are strong enough.

Our structured classes work towards this and are also fantastic for bonding with your little one, as well as enjoying yourselves in a fun relaxed atmosphere, which we always ensure is at your little one’s own pace including underwater swims. Babies use their natural reflexes when they are in water, so it is always a good idea to start as soon as you can, as swimming is a great workout and helps to strengthen their muscles and also increases alertness.

For toddlers we follow the STA Stanley Awards, so again little ones can gain water confidence and build a foundation to swim unaided. For this age group we still sing songs and have fun with games and also start to teach the basic strokes, continuing with water safety skills and teaching your toddler to hold on, turn, then push off the side to swim to you independently. Classes will focus on floating, learning to tread water, rolling, push and glides, diving for sinkers and more.

Swimmers Academy is for our older swimmers where we focus on stroke technique and stamina, classes run for any age from Beginners and go through to Gold also incorporating Lifesaving Awards.
All teachers are fully qualified with specialist training for your little ones. Our classes are child led to ensure each child is taught and developed at their own pace.

We Swim at Best Western Kilima Hotel, New Earswick Pool, Pocklington School, Robert Wilkinson Primary School, Roko & Stamford Bridge Junior School

Due to the arrival of my second baby there are currently no Moo Music sessions while I am on maternity leave. Moo Music York will be back in January 2022 every Thursday at Tang Hall Community Centre. Please feel free to message or email me if you would like details closer to the time or if you would like to be added to our mailing list. Alternatively keep an eye on my Facebook page for updates and posts. I look forward to being back and seeing lots of lovely Moovers in the new year. Best wishes, Farmer Karyn.

Moo Music is a great fun and interactive music session for 0 to 5 year old children and their parents, grandparents or carers too, where the children sing, dance and play. Music is an essential part of every child’s development and the 125 original Moo Music songs used at the sessions are positive, uplifting, fun and educational. The interactive sessions will help your child gain confidence and develop memory, language and coordination skills in an exciting, enjoyable and multi-sensory way. It’s a great way to make new friends – both for the children and the adults too!

The first session is free so there is no need to pay anything up front. However, you do need to book in order to attend as spaces are limited due to covid restrictions. To book just visit my Facebook page, Moo Music York and click on the ‘book now’ button.

Are you looking for a class which is fun, upbeat and action-packed? Are you keen to give your child a good foundation in early literacy skills? Would you like to join a class that you can enjoy together with your child, whilst learning about phonics at the same time, and discover lots of ideas for ways that you can support them at home?

Come along to award-winning 45-minute classes aimed at toddlers and pre-schoolers between 1-4 years, which are delivered by an experienced teacher and are based on the Early Years Curriculum.

Weekly sessions gently introduce letter sounds, whilst also focusing on developing confidence, turn-taking and listening skills. Classes help children develop an early interest in sounds without even realising, as they are too busy playing and having fun! This is the perfect class to help boost your child’s confidence, whilst compliment what they learn at preschool and prepare them for big school.

Come and groove on down to our dough-disco, shake your pom-poms and meet our mascot Robot Reg who shows children how to use his arms to orally blend and segment the sounds for reading and spelling!

MINIs sessions (1 – 2.5 year olds) are play-based sessions that help to develop speech & language skills and early vocabulary through short activities and role-playing, including nursery rhymes.
PRE-SCHOOLER sessions (2.5 – 4 year olds) include sound recognition and oral blending & segmenting, which are foundations for learning to read. This is through fast-paced, fun games and activities which encourage listening for sounds.

What Would Your Baby Like To Say?

Babies use all kinds of signs and gestures as a natural part of learning to talk; think of the delight we have when they learn to point, wave or blow a kiss! Encouraging your baby with extra signs like ‘milk’, ‘more’, ‘change nappy’ or ‘tired’ will help your baby communicate more easily.  Developed with the help of Speech and Language professionals, Sing and Sign classes utilise music and songs, props and rhymes in fun sessions that makes learning to baby sign both easy and fun!

Autumn 2021 classes, starting w/c September 20th, are now open to book. Our courses are designed over three developmental stages that broadly equate to:

Sing and Sign Babes – 0-6m

Stage 1 – 6 – 13m

Swimming with Linzi is all about having fun in a safe environment whilst gaining water confidence and developing great stroke technique.

I am a small independent STA swim school; I live in Sheriff Hutton and I set up my swim school after training and teaching my own children to swim many years ago. I realised then that the whole goal to swimming success is fun!

I offer baby, toddler and pre-school lessons at Carr Junior School in Acomb, York, from 1 month old to 4 years from nurturing baby classes right through to stroke development: Monday, Thursday and Friday mornings from 9.30-12.00 pm. At this same location I also offer all abilities classes for 2-9 years, Sunday 1:00-5:00 pm.

I also run after school classes at Robert Wilkinson School, Strensall, York, for beginners through to more advanced, once again encouraging water confidence which leads to improved stroke technique: Monday , Tuesday and Wednesday3.30-6.30 pm.

I like to get to know all the children individually and adapt my teaching to suit every child. Your child will be enabled to happily progress at their own pace. All swimmers receive a STA certificate, as well as a woven badge, these are included in your fee.

Classes are fun based and relaxed with only 6 children in each class, only 1 lesson running at a time and the whole pool to ourselves, so we have lots of space. In this environment I find my swimmers really enjoy their lessons and thrive learning to swim following the progressive STA guidelines and being COVID safe.

I have over 15 years of swimming teaching experience and I am a fully qualified STA Swimming Instructor, STA baby and pre-school teacher. I hold a Level 3 STA Diploma in Aquatic Teaching for Baby and Pre-school, STA lifeguard certificate and have DBS clearance. I’ve also recently received STA COVID-19 Safety Officer Certificate.Do have a look at my facebook page for more info or get in touch.

Tiny Toes Music
Tiny Toes Music is all about you and your baby, toddler or child playing and making music together and enjoying the magic of being surrounded by live music. Babies and children love songs, rhythms and music and benefit greatly from a musical environment. Music affects the physical, emotional, and intellectual development of babies and children and strengthens cognitive and sensory development.

But most of all, Tiny Toes Music is fun for all!

Teeny Tiny Toes Music

Teeny Tiny Toes Music is a brand new music and singing group for new parents and pre-mobile babies from newborn.
When we sing to our babies, the following wonderful things happen – we bond, we play and have fun, we develop language and listening skills, we learn to recognize names and ease transitions e.g. you will learn songs for waking, sleeping, eating and even pooing!
All the above boils down to using your singing voice, doing actions, signing and making music as a way to express love and joy. Your baby will not care in the slightest if you are a great singer or not. They only care that you are singing to THEM! In their eyes and ears, you’ll be a super star!

Come along to Tiny Toes Music and experience for yourselves the many wonderful benefits that music and singing brings, whilst making new friends within the wider community.

York Suzuki Early Childhood Education offers weekly music classes for children aged 0-3, with their caregiver. They are a chance to come together to celebrate the unlimited potential of every child. Our classes offer a calm, structured, nurturing space to engage with your little one through music.

The classes are run by trained SECE teacher, Laura Wingrove, who has over 10 years’ experience of teaching through the Suzuki method. Class sizes are small to allow each and every child to flourish and caregivers are supported at every stage of the journey. We use the beautiful SECE curriculum of nursery rhymes and action songs which is based on the teaching philosophy of renowned pedagogue Shinichi Suzuki. Although many musical concepts are mastered within the classes, it was not Suzuki’s primary aim to create master musicians, but rather ‘human beings with beautiful, harmonious minds and high sensitivity’. We believe that by using the highest quality musical instruments, children are given the earliest opportunity to appreciate beauty, to treat the instruments with respect, and to play them properly, creating a beautiful sound themselves.
