  • Childminders Support Network:  regular evening meetings and training events.
  • Body Confidence: Mondays from 10.30am-noon. An opportunity for mums who have recently given birth to do some gentle exercise where baby is included in the process. Have a coffee, chat and socialise with other mums.
  • Young Mum's Body Confidence: Wednesdays from 11.15am-12.45pm. For mums under 21 years of age who have recently had a baby, an opportunity to do some gentle exercise where baby is included in the process and meet other young mums. From January, baby massage sessions will follow at 1pm.
  • Baby Massage: Thursdays from 10-11.30am. Baby massage is an enjoyable and fun experience for both baby and parent/carer. It enhances the bond between parent and baby; relieves colic, wind, constipation and teething pain; soothes restless babies and improves baby's sleep. For local parents.
