Mini Movers

Sensory mother and baby groups in cardiff!

Mini Movers offers a range of fun mother and baby groups in Cardiff, Dinas Powys and Caerphilly. 

Expertly developed by a senior children’s physiotherapist and dance teacher, Mini Movers is a unique baby sensory class which combines sensory play, dance and music to stimulate your little one in every class!

Each exercise and dance in Mini Movers has been meticulously designed to work on gross motor and fine motor skills, sensory integration, proprioception, rhythm, musicality, attention and core stability whilst also promoting fun, confidence, social skills and bonding between parent and child.

Mini Movers helps your baby learn about the world around them through sensory stimulation, light shows, music, dance, baby massage, fun home crafts and more. Our intermediate and graduate classes also help toddlers build friendships, develop social skills and confidence through parachute play, music and dance.

Our class themes change regularly to stimulate your baby and let your child explore and learn new skills whilst learning new things about the world around them. Fun and popular themes include Under the Sea, When I Grow Up, In the Jungle, Around the World and more!

Numbers

Gross motor skills

Whole body movements which involve the large (core stabilising) muscles
Numbers

Fine motor skills

Movements which require the smaller muscle of the hands and fingers
Numbers

Sensory integration

How the brain processes information we receive from our five senses, organises it, and responds
Numbers

Proprioception

The sense that lets us perceive the location, movement, and action of different parts of the body. We are not born with this and need to learn it!
Numbers

Rhythm and musicality

Understanding of tempo, rhythm, mood and phrasing- important for learning instruments, singing and dancing
Numbers

Attention

Key for learning as it allows us to plan, monitor and regulate our thoughts and actions
Numbers

Core stability

Allows us to be stable, functional and protects our spine
Numbers

Social skills

Early social interaction is beneficial for child development and can help develop strong language skills, creativity, empathy, communication and confidence
Numbers

Bonding

Research has shown that attending baby music and movement classes increase parent-baby attachment and improve the quality of interaction and bonding

Our baby sensory classes centre around promoting gross motor skills, which are key for helping your baby or toddler to gain strength and confidence in their own body. It builds a great foundation for them to continue to develop as they grow and be able to achieve more complex skills later in life such as football, athletics or gymnastics.

Learn how to facilitate your child’s development in all areas safely and gradually with expert advice whilst also dancing, having fun with your baby and other parents and creating special memories together. Our mother and baby groups in Cardiff (around Caerphilly and Dinas Powys) are suitable for children aged newborn to three years old.

We think it is essential for our mother and baby classes to be developmentally appropriate for your little one as we focus on specific skills and milestones in each class therefore, our baby and toddler classes are based around developmental ability rather than age to suit your child’s needs.
