Parent, Baby & Toddler

Do you have a child aged between a few weeks and up to 3 years old? If so, do join us at our Parent, Baby and Toddler sessions at Culford Pre-Prep and Nursery, just 10 minutes outside Bury St Edmunds. Each session offers a different activity for your child, as well as some lovely refreshments to enjoy together in our own Paddy & Scott’s café.

Mini Art Explorers and Mini Active Movers 

Thank you to everyone who has attended our Monday Mini Art Explorers and Wednesday Active Movers sessions this term. The last dates for these activities will be Monday 4  and Wednesday 6 December as they will not be continuing next term. We will instead be introducing some new activities so please keep an eye on this page. Hartbeeps and Suffolk Sling Dance will continue as usual.

Suffolk Sling Dance | Dance Studio in Sports Centre
Tues at 11.00am

New to Culford for October/November 2017! We are really excited to announce that Suffolk Sling Dance is coming to Culford. The enjoyable class allows parents to dance with their babies or toddlers whilst providing a gentle workout at the same time. It is also a great opportunity to meet and socialise with local mums, as there is a chance to catch up over a hot drink at the end of the session in Culford’s Paddy and Scott’s Café.

 The classes will begin on a weekly basis from Tuesday 7 November at their normal price of £6.00.

The cost of Parent, Baby & Toddler Hartbeeps is £6.00 per session (£3 for registered Culford parents) plus £1.00 for every additional toddler, but no charge for a baby.

Hartbeeps begins with a coffee and a catch up for parents and playtime for the children. This is followed by a music session aiming to enhance your child's early years experience. The sessions will be integrated with Culford Nursery, making it a great way to get to know the teachers and pupils at Culford. Those who attend Hartbeeps can also take part in a swimming session twice per term in our on-site pool, again followed by a catch up in the café.
