Supporting you & your child

Get your child off to a flying start.

‘Flying Bees’ - Newborn to 4 months

Our massage & movement groups are suitable for newborns (and older infants) to 4-5 months of age. We introduce you & your baby to massage routines you can use from birth, positions for play & tummy time ideas,  we explore your babies cues & find time for you and your baby to unwind and connect together. Flying Bees is a wonderful way for you as a caregiver to learn all about your baby and the wonderful things they can already do! The activities you learn helps equip you with the skills to help you support your child to coregulate, help them soothe to sleep and can help you to ease their discomfort when they are teething, have colic or feel constipated. Our babies are given a free massage oil sample for you to trial!

See the world though your child's eyes & experience the wonders of play.

‘Busy Bees’ Sensory Movers 4.5-5 months+

The group focus’ on promoting a child’s global development. We use a range of activities to stimulate sensory, motor, cognitive and social emotional development. We introduce you and your baby to the eight body senses and strategies to develop a child’s sensory processing skills (this is key to developing longer term self regulation skills).


We work through a range of key positions for play which promote gross motor development, activities and games to develop visual perceptual, fine motor and cognitive development. All of our activities promote communication and social interaction

A slower pace for those need nurturing

‘Warrior Bees’ newborn+

Is a group or 1:1 session specifically for infants who may have been born prematurely or may have additional medical needs following a difficult start. Our groups are bespoke to those attending and deliver important early intervention, promote sensory regulation, comfort, discuss early positioning and self care strategies and provide parental education. Our groups are a great way for you to meet other families who have had similar experiences. Please contact us to discuss your child’s needs and to book a January 2021 place.
