Baby and toddler groups/classes are beginning to start up again. Many of the groups and classes that ran pre-covid are not returning, but there are some completely new offerings. I’m currently working through all the historical data on classes from before lockdowns, getting confirmation of what has disappeared forever and what has restarted or is about to and adding them to the site one by one. If you have info on classes definitely running that aren’t yet up here, please email me info at and I’ll get it up here.
