New Classes & Groups for babies and children in York
A new year is always a great time to try something new for you and your mini mumbler – and the fantastic children’s service and class providers of York have lots of new things to offer to try.
We’ve gathered the information together here so you can choose from these new offers, new classes and activities in York in 2020…
A Gentle Beginning
Calm and supportive parent and infant groups in York.
These groups offer a uniquely peaceful and supportive space for parents with babies up to toddling. In these groups you learn how to create a co-operative and loving relationship with your baby, and see how self-initiated movement and play time is so crucial. You make new friends and can join a special facebook group where helpful articles and other offerings are given. There is tea and cake to welcome you and a selection of eco friendly appropriate first play objects for your baby to explore. The groups are held in a beautiful room, are 1 ½ hours long and run on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. The first session is FREE.
NEW 2020 offer – a specially chosen bag of eco-friendly first play objects to take home
We have new classes starting on Thursdays at Emperors Gym in York.
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 ones 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.
For our older swimmers 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.
Age Range: Classes from 6 weeks old up to 14 years old Classes at: Roko, Kilima Hotel, New Earswick, Emperors Gym, Robert Wilkinson School, Pocklington School and Stamford Bridge.
We are delighted to be returning our very popular and Mumbler Recommended Baby Bumpkin Yoga sessions (suitable for little ones 10 weeks to pre crawling) to Little Green Rascals, Tadcaster Road in January – but this time (and new for us) on a THURSDAY, 13.15 – 14.15. You DON’T have to be using the nursery to be able to attend these sessions.
This 6 week course is a wonderful way to connect with your baby through story, music, stretching and simple baby yoga moves. We add in a few warm up stretches for parent / carers too, but don’t worry if you have no previous experience of yoga as our sessions are predominantly aimed at little ones (with just the occasional cat stretch and downward dog thrown in for grown ups too !).
We promote feelings of calm … and have fun along the way too !!
Cost : £6.95 per session, booked as a term. Commences Thursday 9th January .

At Kixx our goal is simple: To have a positive impact on every child at every opportunity. We do this through an innovative programme which offers a high energy, fun, age-appropriate introduction to physical activity through football. Our programme has been carefully designed for both boys and girls between the ages of 18 months and 10 years of age.
Our sessions have been created and developed by professional footballers and trained coaches who use the best games, drills, exercises and materials which are age appropriate.
Each 40 minute session provides a fun, playful, safe environment which encourages children to develop a positive sense of themselves, respect for others, a positive disposition to learn new skills, and a sense of pride in their ability to master them.
We deliver Kixx sessions on Saturday mornings at our Vale of York Academy, Rawcliffe Drive, Clifton, York, YO30 6ZS and Sunday mornings at our York Sports Village Academy, Lakeside Way, York, YO10 5FG.
NEW Specialist Disability Swimming Lessons in York
Level Water is offering specialist 1:1 swimming lessons to children with disabilities. We fund lessons for children: – Aged 4 to 11 – With a physical, hearing or visual disability – Who cannot swim ten metres
Unfortunately we are not able to support children with a significant behavioural, social or learning difficulty
Swimming is a great sport for children, but it can be ineffective or unsafe for some with disabilities to learn in mainstream groups.
Level Water provides one-to-one lessons until they are ready to join a mainstream class or competitive club.
How does it Work?
We work in partnership with Better Leisure at Energise Leisure Centre. We provide their teachers with specialist disability training. They deliver your lessons and we provide funding so that together, we can offer 1:1 lessons to you for at the mainstream group rate.
We will send you a full application form to complete.
If we can provide funding, the pool will contact you directly to book your lessons.
Moo Music is a fun, interactive and multi-sensory music session for 0 to 5 year olds and their grown ups too! We sing, sign, dance, play, explore and have lots of moosical fun to over 120 original songs. Music is an essential part of every child’s development and the original Moo Music songs are positive, uplifting, fun and educational. The interactive sessions will help children 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 for the children and the adults too! Each week we have a new theme for our sessions so why not come and join us on one of our adventures!
My 11 month old absolutely loves his Moo Music sessions! We sing the songs at home most days and he gets all smiley and excited when they come on in the session now, which is really nice to see. Mel is so lovely too, and the amount of props she has is amazing! There’s something new for the babies to play with/look at every single week! I’m gutted to be going back to work soon as we will have to stop coming 🙁
I definitely recommend these sessions for any babies who enjoy music and singing! It’s so much fun!
