Gurgle & Co. offer weekly, multi-activity developmental play classes for babies to preschoolers. The classes have been designed to grow with your child and their developing knowledge and experiences of the world around them. 

Aligned with the new 2021 EYFS Framework, the classes support and encourage the development of:

  • language acquisition
  • fine and gross motor skills
  • multi-sensory awareness
  • balance, rhythm and movement
  • emotional understanding
  • cognitive skills
  • social and early friendship learning
  • attention and listening skills

Time with your baby, toddler or preschooler is precious, particularly in these most formative early years. Gurgle & Co. combines sensory play, music and rhythm (with yoga inspired movements), messy play, baby signing into the one combined class. As your child grows we start to add in some early phonics. The classes are stimulating, structured and fast paced, whilst allowing parents and caregivers the opportunity to experience a wide variety of early years activities within the one class.

We all want our children to have the best start in life and to have the opportunity to socialise with children of their own age.  Becoming a new parent can be very overwhelming, at Gurgle & Co. we place a high value on the importance of new parents having the opportunity to make new friends for themselves and to join new communities. This is why each session finishes with a chance to grab a hot drink and have a chat. All of our class groups are also connected via a private whats app group to arrange any informal play dates and to ask any questions. 

As your child becomes a preschooler we start to introduce a knowledge of phonics in a fun and play based way, with an aim to build their confidence and awareness of phonemes (sounds). This is based around Phase One of the Letters and Sounds Framework used by nurseries and schools, providing the perfect start for your little learner as they begin their nursery or school education.
