“I would never have thought that a yoga class could be so welcoming, friendly and helpful – and the fact it’s been virtual during such a difficult year is totally amazing.”
Hi, I’m Alison, I’ve been teaching Pregnancy Yoga for 14 years. Creating connection and community is really important to me and I’m here to support you every step of the way. Yoga helps you enjoy a healthy pregnancy, easing aches and pains and feeling great in your body, with time and space to reflect and prepare. You might be planning a hospital birth, home birth, maximum pain relief, minimal intervention – all are welcome here. I also offer lovely nourishing post-natal yoga for you and your little one, to support you through your first year.
We can adapt all the practices to suit individual needs, or come and sit, lay down, breathe and be in the company of other mums and mums to be. Everyone is welcome to take what they need.

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.

Weekly sessions gently introduce letter sounds, whilst also focusing on developing confidence, turn-taking and listening skills.

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.

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!

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.
