Swaddling to Toddling: Wesley Memorial Methodist Church, St George
Welcoming and relaxed antenatal classes focusing on labour and baby care. Giving you the confidence to look forward to and enjoy your baby. Sessions will cover feeding, dressing, nappy changing, winding, sleep, teeth, hygiene, possible routines and much more.

Collect and explore information packs to guide you through the first year and onwards. Practice key skills on realistic dolls and discuss a range of theories so you can decide how you manage your journey with your baby.

Meet other couples in your local area and enjoy the social time at the end of each session (refreshments included).

Sing and Sign: St Aidan’s Church, St George
Sing and Sing are music classes but with a BIG difference.  With your participation and commitment, Sing and Sign can teach your family how to communicate before baby can talk.  Through music and singing, you learn the signs while baby enjoys the songs, instruments and props.  Classes are good fun and relaxed but with a strong emphasis on learning.

A Sing and Sign course runs for 10 weeks and each class lasts about 35-45 minutes.  In those 10 sessions, you can learn well over 100 signs.  Some signs are relevant to baby’s routine (milk, eat, change nappy); some are signs for things that babies are interested in (park, duck, train).  Bristol families say over and over again how much they enjoy Sing and Sign classes and how beneficial signing has been for them.

Songs and stories for pre-schoolers. Term-time only.
