Baby College classes are a total developmental work out for your baby: physical, neurological, communication and cognitive. A series of repetitive, gentle physical exercises help mature your baby’s balance system and replace his infant reflexes. Language and communication skills are explored; music and listening are encouraged; as are fun sensory games such as parachute and bubble play.
Classes are mindful of covid safety and you will be sent up to date guidelines with your booking confirmation. Bookings are for 12 weeks to enable friendships and continuity but mid term bookings and catch up classes can always be arranged subject to availability. Split payments, zoom class access and gift card payments also possible, please ask by emailing [email protected]
Baby College COVID-19 guidelines for parents

Please clean your hands and your little one’s hands before entering class - either wash hands thoroughly for 20 seconds with running water and soap and dry them thoroughly or use the alcohol hand gel supplied ensuring that all parts of the hands are covered
Please ensure good respiratory hygiene by using the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach
We may continue to arrange the classes slightly differently for a time to maintain social distancing, please respect the decision of your Baby College teacher and do not move any mats. Please follow your teacher’s instructions about social distancing (if required) during activities
Where requested to please wear a face covering, this is at the discretion of each Baby College teacher. You are welcome to wear one if you wish to at any time. See section on Face coverings below.
Response to any infection:
Please help us with the following

Government guidelines on singing relaxed from July 19th. Now we are allowed to sing it is a very beneficial development activity for your child and you and important for your child to be able to see your face whilst doing so but at the moment even when singing is allowed, please sing quietly and maintain social distancing whilst singing. Your teacher will inform you of any further restrictions or relaxations to do with singing. We will keep all teachers fully informed as to the latest guidelines.
Latest guidelines are here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-early-years-and-childcare-closures/actions-for-early-years-and-childcare-providers-during-the-coronavirus-covid-19-outbreak#parent-and-child-groups
Use of shared resources
Play Kits: Your teacher may decide to minimise the use of shared equipment for a while longer in your area. If required your teacher will send you details of equipment to bring in a separate bag with you each week to class. You might like to purchase a Baby College Play Kit from your teacher in advance or ordered to be delivered to you in class or you can bring your own equivalent toys (these will be items like rattles, scarfs, books, coloured toys etc.). Play kits are also available from www.babycollege.co.uk/store.
Each week you may be asked to bring commonly owned extra items. When using Baby College equipment in class your teacher will clean this before and after every use so please help them with this by handing it in carefully in the container provided so that they can make sure they are cleaned regularly.
Please keep your toys stored safely in a bag when not in use and keep this bag away from any other roaming little ones.

Baby College: From July 2021 it will be at the discretion of your local Baby College teacher if they wish to continue operating a “mask-to-mat” policy. If so they will ask you to wear a face covering in any situation where social distancing is not possible but to remove your masks (if you are happy to) when you are sitting on your mat and communicating with your child. Make sure masks are put away out of reach of children when not in use.
