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!
Gross motor skills
Fine motor skills
Rhythm and musicality
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.
