Boogie Babes

As well as their usual sessions, Boogie Babes are joining the residents of 4 Dementia care homes! Are you looking for an afternoon activity for your little ones? Then come and be part of something special: Come and wiggle, dance, sing, shake pom-poms, flip the parachute, and pop the bubbles with the residents of one of four Dementia care units.

After reading about the positive impact brought about by mixing these two very different age groups and the benefits for both, I decided Boogie Babes would be perfect!

Refreshments included at the end of the class.

Come and have a truly happy afternoon

Harrogate Gymnastics Pre-School Sessions

Pre-School – Term time sessions

Getting a head start

Bouncing, spinning, rolling – children are already natural-born gymnasts. So if you want to help yours develop their physical skills, what better place to start than at Harrogate Gymnastics? In our Pre-school Classes we teach your children important skills like balance and co-ordination. With expert supervision and a playful environment, it’s a great way for them to have fun and lay the foundations of a healthy, active lifestyle. With an adventure playground to explore and lots of exciting activities to get involved in, the sessions are always energetic and entertaining. And while they’re having fun with new friends, they’ll also be getting a head start in the world of physical exercise.

Structured Classes

Our pre-school structured classes are for children aged from 2.5 years old who can participate independently of their parent/carer. Each class is 40 minutes of fun, continuous activity using the full range of gymnastic equipment, trampolines, and the foam pit. With a small coach to children ratio, each child receives proper instruction and has many opportunities to practise gymnastic skills that help develop and improve their listening skills, balance, spacial awareness, coordination, flexibly, agility, and strength. We will regularly evaluate each child’s progress against the stage criteria to see which specific areas need further work, where they are excelling and how much they are improving.

 

Drop-in Sessions.

All of our drop-in sessions are open to all pre-school children accompanied by an adult and, new to the drop-in, we now have a special baby area for our smallest members. Sessions are £5 each child, and there’s no need to book – just come along and have a go!

The Fern Club – STEAM+M children’s programme.

The Fern Club is unlike any other STEAM (Science, technology, engineering, art and maths) programme as our main focus throughout the class is movement; STEAM+M. Children are free to move from activity to activity as they please, experiencing STEAM inspired skills as they go.

For children aged 2-7 years we specialise in promoting a love for learning. Aiming to take away the pressures of formal education and encourage the child’s natural inquisitive playful self.

The Fern Club follows a curriculum of classes; specifically tailored for children, focusing on a different weekly theme. During the class each parent and child will experience skills and activities together. What’s most important though is that children love to move, so our classes have a big emphasis on motor skill development.

By no means are we looking for “finished products”, we encourage children to explore and take the lead. For you the parents we give you the tools to help your child’s inquisitive mind flourish and to spot the benefits and learning in action.

We will show you the amazing benefits to your child’s motor skill, cognitive, social and emotional development throughout the class. Seemingly simple activities often have incredible benefits to your child’s whole brain development. The Fern Club teachers will highlight the learning moments and help you to spot them in the future.

As a member of The Fern Club, you the parent will be actively involved as your child experiences new and exciting opportunities. You’ll be right there with them as they achieve new skills and master new levels of thinking. Your job is to guide your child through the activities on offer. This could be lending a helping hand, trying something together, participating beside your child or simply standing back and letting them figure it out themselves. There will be a whole range of activities on offer, some will need your assistance, others will simply need you to watch and marvel at your little one discover something new. The only thing we ask of you is that you get involved and dedicate 1-unhurried-hour to your child.

There are 3 locations in the Harrogate area on Monday, Wednesday and Thursdays. Duchy Road, The Green Hut and Calcutt.

Parents are to stay with their child throughout the duration of the class to experience the class together.

>Siblings are welcome and discounts are available to those with more than 1 child between 2-7 years.

Classes begin from 5th November with a 7 week term for just £52.50. Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

To book, visit “http://www.thefernclub.com  or for more information email hello@thefernclub.com

Toddler Sense in Harrogate and Wetherby

Eleanor runs award winning Toddler Sense classes in Wetherby and Harrogate.

Toddler Sense offers children aged 13 months to 5 years the opportunity to explore a new play space each week; every week is themed differently – we might be flying on a rocket one week, digging for fossils the next, then discovering the jungle or being superheroes! Every class has been carefully planned to support children’s learning and development in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage; but they don’t know that, they’re too busy having fun!! Structured activities go hand in hand with the opportunity to play and discover. Each class starts with exploratory play, a great way of settling children in and allowing them to burn off some energy on the soft play, bouncy castles, balancing beams, pop up tents and tunnels. We have a huge range of equipment and resources; the children can’t wait to see what is set out each week! A 20-25 minute activity session follows, rich in sensory exploration, much loved songs, dance and creativity!

If you are looking for exciting activities which will be great fun for both you and your little one, please book on the home page or call Eleanor on 07771 982412 or email harrogate@toddlersense.co.uk.
