About Baby Development Course
The ultimate baby course lasting for 13 weeks and is suitable from birth.
You will go on a journey with your baby learning all you need to know to support each stage of their development.
The course consists of baby massage, baby yoga, story massage and sensory based play.
Laura Evans a trained weaning specialist will be joining us to run a session on different weaning approaches and to answer any questions you may have.

You will be joined on the course with like minded parents and you will see the same people each week. This is an excellent opportunity to make new friends and support networks.
The baby development course fee can be paid in two installments please contact me to arrange.
About Baby Massage
Everything you need for the session will be provided for you including organic massage oil, a mat for your baby to lie on and some toys for your baby to play with. I also have spare dolls for you to use just incase you arrive and your baby has fallen asleep. The only thing you are asked to bring is a towel for your baby. We are strong believers in the importance of baby's sense of smell and familiarity and have no doubt that your baby will be most comfortable with a towel from home. Free parking is also available at the venue.
At the beginning of your course you will receive a booklet containing lots of information about baby massage including all of the techniques from the duration of the course to help you to continue massaging your baby at home.
Integrated into each session will be opportunity for you to relax and have a drink and biscuit and meet other guardians.
Baby massage is recommended for babies from birth to crawling.
Baby massage courses run for 5 weeks. You will then have the opportunity to continue onto a second baby massage course or progress to baby yoga or sensory massage.
Here at Twinkle Toes we want you to feel relaxed and comfortable so please feel free to wander around with baby if they need a cuddle, feed baby, change baby's nappy, or if they are unsettled and just need a break.
Please wear comfortable clothing when attending baby massage.
About Baby Yoga
Baby yoga is a fun and interactive class for both parent and baby.
We work through moves to help aid your babies development, involving gentle stretches to help with coordination, the digestive system, and is a great sleep aid.
Parents also enjoy some gentle yoga movements to help stretch out those aches and pains from carrying you baby around whilst incorporating your baby through the use of sensory props and songs.
We enjoy a relaxation at the end of the session and social time to make friends with babies of a similar age.
Baby yoga is suitable from 8 weeks to the crawling stage and is a fantastic follow on from baby massage or a stand alone course.
Each baby yoga course lasts for 5 weeks in duration.
Please wear comfortable clothing when attending baby yoga.
About Sensory Massage
Sensory Massage is an upbeat, cheerful class to support your babies developing needs.
Sensory massage involves our award winning story massage based on a different theme each week, nursery rhymes, lap movements and sensory play.
A refreshment break is provided to give carers the opportunity to relax and socialize whilst your baby enjoys playing with a range of carefully chosen toys to delight their senses.
Sensory massage is suitable from 2 months to 12 months old, your baby can participate in whichever position they are most comfortable - lying down, sitting up etc.
Sensory massage is a perfect follow on course from baby massage and baby yoga, helping you to continue providing your baby with the benefits of positive touch.
