Mondays ( when it is just £3.00 all day)…..

New Monday Mummy Me Time @ The Nurture Barn starting 11th June. Massages for tired mummies with Kia of Takesometime.

As a mum you shouldn’t feel guilty or even made to feel guilty about wanting a bit of ‘ME’ time……why? Because you’re human! It is important, vital even, to reconnect with yourself once in a while and by doing so, by giving yourself an opportunity just for a short time to relax, to breath, to think ‘I really needed to do this for ME’ will have such a positive impact on your wellbeing of which will benefit others around you! Sound good? Well add on the feeling of helping other mums to do the same and you’ll feel amazing!

This is how it works…..

You’ll need 2-4 Mums that you know well to be free on a Monday as you will be tag teaming and take it in turns to look after one another’s little one, so you can switch off and relax.

Choose your half hour slot from 10-10.30, 10.30-11, 11-11.30, 11.30-12, 12-12.30, 1-1.30, 1.30-2, 2-2.30 and 2.30-3.

 On the third Monday of every month we have a Multiple group.


We have our very popular weekly Baby Music, Movement and Sensory class called BoogieWoogies with a class at 10 am (Babies & Crawlers) and 11am (Walkers up to age 2), a third mixed class at 12pm and another mixed class at 1.30pm if enough interest. This class can run outside when warm weather.This runs certain weeks through the school holidays and multiples (twins and triplets) pay £3.50 extra for the class.  On the first Tuesday morning of every month we have a Sling Meet Up.


BoogieWoogies is a sell out class every week, so book quickly for your week. It has been so popular we also have a Toddler/Walkers class now too for under 3’s. Mums don’t want to pay term fees anymore particularly when they are little in case they cannot make a class. Watch a short video of the BoogieWoogies session here.

As well as Wednesdays, this is really fun day for those little ones who have started scaling the walls at home. We put out plenty of soft, clean, shapes for them to climb on – laid out right in front of you, downstairs so you can relax and have a coffee while watching them. See a video of it here.
