autumn kids classes

A NOTE TO THIS TERM’S GUIDE! This has been much harder to put together than usual given the current circumstances, but the good news is that most classes are hoping to be able to get back to ‘real-life’ classes from September. Lots are also planning to run online classes alongside these for people who would prefer or for those who can’t get a place in the real-life classes due to numbers being reduced. Please note that the following information is correct at time of writing, but as with everything else this year things could change at any time. We apologise if there are any inaccuracies, and please do let us know if you find one. We will carry on adding classes as and when we hear they’re back.

We’ve put together this handy reference guide to local kids classes and activities that take place from September until the Christmas holidays – baby classes, toddler classes, and classes for older children. As always, if there’s anything you’d like to see added, just let us know.

There’s a lot here, so the listings are split into four sections to help you find what you’re looking for: 1) Creative Craft & Forest School; 2) Drama, Dance & Singing; 3) Music & Developmental; and 4) Sport & Movement. 

NB We have included pricing information where possible here, but it’s worth speaking direct with the classes as most offer a free trial and lots offer sibling discounts, but some also charge a membership fee. Most classes that charge by the term will also allow you to join mid-term – if there is space – for a reduced rate.
