STAG Mumbler – Summer Holiday Special

Have a wonderful Summer break

It’s nearly that time again, these holidays do seem to come around so quick (perhaps not quick enough for our mumbler teachers!).  Filling the time can be hard, as can finding new and exciting things to do, while watching those pennies.  Here at STAG, we thought we’d try and help make it a little easier for you and offer you some inspiration.

Check out our STAG Mumbler – Summer Holidays Special

It’s never too late to tell us about great local events, clubs or groups.  So if you’re heading somewhere great this Summer, do let us know about it at stag@mumbler.co.uk and we’ll make sure we add it for other mumblers to see.

Moo Music is a great fun and interactive regular music and movement session for 0 to 5 year old children and their parents, grandparents or carers too, where the children sing, dance, play, learn and have lots of MOOsical fun.

The interactive sessions will help your child gain confidence and develop memory, language and coordination skills in an exciting, enjoyable and multi-sensory way. It’s a great way to make new friends – both for the children and the adults too!

Puddle Ducks Swimming Lessons

Puddle Ducks are one of the UK’s leading providers of swimming lessons to babies, toddlers and pre-school children. Our Baby & Pre-school programme is a wonderful bonding experience and our classes incorporate rhyme, music and movement, based on extensive child development research. Our lessons are so well received that the children we teach can often swim over 10 metres before they start school. We also have our fabulous Swim Academy lessons for 4-10 year old children, suitable for all abilities.

Our tailor made swimming classes, suitable from birth, instil a love of the water in every child and your little one can jump in’ at any point during the term. As well as teaching babies and children to swim we also teach them some important personal survival skills. Learning to swim is a journey and one that opens doors for your child along the way. From the pleasures of a swimming pool or the sea on a family holiday to learning water sports, the possibilities are endless!

‘His confidence in the water has significantly improved from a timid little boy who wouldn’t so much as look at his teacher, without crying, let alone be the demonstration! The patience and persistence of his teacher has clearly paid off. He absolutely loves his lesson and made me a very proud mummy recently being awarded swimmer of the week! Highly recommended!’

LP, June 18

‘My daughter goes to Swim Academy at Loversall with Liz & Vicky and she absolutely loves it, she is growing in confidence with every lesson. Every week she counts down the days to the next one, she has especially enjoyed the pyjamas week lesson and didn’t want to leave. My son also attends Floaties with Vicky and he is very happy in the water, highly recommend’

LJ, March 18

‘Have used puddle ducks at Dw Selby since my three year old was 12 weeks old. Great water confidence.’

EB, Jan 18

We run classes in Selby at DW Fitness & Willow Lodge, Bubwith on several days of the week. Find out more about all of our pools and classes on our website.

Relax Kids


Mumbler Accredited Review – Read what STAG Mumbler thought when we went along and reviewed a class.

Relax Kids sessions are designed to develop your child’s emotional intelligence in a fun and engaging way by taking them on adventures that give them lifelong tools to regulate their emotions and manage their feelings, as well as the confidence to try new things and the power of positive thought.

Our classes follow a 7-step programme that allow children to explore different themes through movement and play, yoga inspired stretches, self/peer massage, fun breathing activities, and a blissful visualisation section. Each class is full of fun and relaxation in equal measure.

There are different programmes to suit all ages – Little Stars (ages 2 – 5), Magical Adventure (ages 5 – 9), Chill Skills (ages 9 – 16), and Just Relax (Adults Relaxation Classes). Our community classes are held at The Old Granary, Riccall Grange in a beautiful and nurturing space in small, intimate groups. In addition to this, I offer bespoke one to one sessions that are planned around your child’s interests and needs – these are particularly helpful if you would like to work on specific issues (e.g. a period of transition such as separation, loss of a loved one, change of school etc).

Little Stars – Friday Mornings 10am – 11am @ The Old Granary, Riccall Grange

Relax and Restore Family Workshop – the last Sunday of every month 10am – 12noon @ The Old Granary, Riccall Grange

E and I, 19

Can highly recommend Anne Marie’s classes. We did baby massage and yoga and it was always the highlight of our week, especially in the early days when getting out of the house is an achievement in itself! So lovely meeting other mums and babies too. Anne Marie is so welcoming and we will miss going to her classes every week!

RB, April 19

Every session we’ve done with Anne-Marie has been excellent, she makes you feel amazing and confident even when you don’t feel it. My little boy loved going to the sessions and gets so excited and happy when we sing any of the songs and actions we’ve learned.

Water Babies Swim School

Baby swimming with Water Babies is an exciting, enriching experience for both you and your little one. Suitable for little ones from birth up to school age. As the UK’s leading swim school, not only do we teach vital lifesaving skills but we always incorporate lots of bonding, fun and socialising, so you can be sure that a Water Baby is a happy one! Our number one priority is to make sure you feel both happy and safe in the water.

Excellent for babies born premature too like my little girl. We’re chapter 8 now her her development has come on massively to the point she has practically caught up in everything.

KE, Aug 18

‘I highly recommend it! My boy and I are swimming with water babies for over a year, and every chapter is better and better.’

DB, Aug 18

I love Water Babies! This is my second round with my second child and it is just consistently brilliant. All of the teachers are so lovely, so gentle and encouraging with the children and so much fun. WB communication is excellent and they’re an all round lovely bunch! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for swimming lessons to enjoy with their children.
