‘Me & my little one completed two terms of baby yoga with Samantha & we couldn’t recommend them enough, I was gutted that she outgrew the class! They are a fab session not only for the babies but also for the mums (I particularly enjoyed the relaxation time at the end 🙊) I totally believe that moves we did in class helped my daughter progress so quickly in terms of crawling & standing plus it’s lovely to have a bit of social time with other mums too.’

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.

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!’

‘My daughter has attended Sally Corbally‘s dance classes in Riccall for a while now and really enjoys them. She does ballet and tap and gets to take part in a big show every couple of years, would highly recommend the classes for children of all abilities.’
FF, Jan 18
‘At three years old our daughter joined Sally Corbally’s School of Dance. She absolutely loved to sing and dance and Sally came highly recommend. Two years later her love of dancing has continued to grow which is down to the excellent teaching of Sally and her dance teachers. Sally really has given our daughter a chance to shine, taking part in her first dance show this May and completing her bronze award in tap and ballet this July. There is a real focus on enjoyment for dance in the sessions and our daughters confidence has improved greatly as well as her technique. I would wholeheartedly recommend Sally Corbally’s school of dance to any parent whose child has an interest in dance and performing. ‘

Tinytalk Baby Signing classes are fun and beneficial classes for you and your baby. I teach British Sign Language signs in a baby friendly and interactive way using nursery rhymes and songs. Help develop communication skills with your baby before they have the muscle strength to speak using words. Basic signs will allow babies to communicate their wants, needs, and interests to you.

with toys for the babies and a free drink and biscuit for adults. This
time is vital as it allows babies to socialise together and encourages
friendships within the classes. It is an opportunity to meet other local
parents and carers and to ask me for tips and advice on signing with
