Baby & Toddler Timetable: BS41


A list of weekly term-time activities for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers in BS41. Please contact groups prior to arriving to ensure they are running that day.


Babel Babies: Long Ashton Community Centre
Award-winning multilingual music and movement sessions for babies, toddlers and preschoolers with songs and stories in different languages from around the world – no prior knowledge of the languages required!

There are two age groups: Babies (up to walking) and Bambinos (toddlers and preschoolers, and any younger siblings). Both groups learn songs with signs to aid early communication, songs with instruments, songs with movement, and soothing lullabies in a fun, interactive musical session that will give you and your little ones plenty to talk about when you get home. Parents often head for coffee afterwards and keep the conversation going.

The sessions are a great way to discover the joy of learning another language while your toddler is doing the same, or learn with your kids as they start to use a foreign language at primary school. They are also perfect for parents who’d like to meet other families bringing up children with more than one language.

Babel Babies sessions run in 5-week courses where you will learn about 8 songs in a variety of languages from French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Arabic, Norwegian, Russian and Welsh. Every child receives a watercolour-illustrated Babel Journal where you collect stickers and surprises every week to keep track of your adventures with languages. A course is £32.50 for one child, and just £10 per additional sibling.
