At Award winning ARTventurers we run colourful, creative (often messy!) art, craft and creative play sessions for babies, toddlers and children as well as holiday classes and workshops, fantastic creative birthday parties and other events for children of all ages.
The aim of ARTventurers sessions are to nurture and develop your child’s creativity.
We provide them with the opportunities, guidance, inspiration and materials to EXPLORE, experiment and EXPRESS themselves through a range of COLOURFUL art, creative and sensory activities.
We run weekend and school holiday specials too, please check the website for details.
We are Gold Fully Accredited members with the Childhood Activity Association meaning you can have absolute confidence in the activities and sessions that we provide for children.
We are WINNERS in the What’s On 4 Kids Awards 2020 for Most Loved Academic/Creative Activity AND Most Loved Baby Activity.
At Baby Swimmers we follow the Starfish Awards, so little ones can gain water confidence and build a foundation to swim unaided in the future. We play games and sing songs which are skill related and also teach water safety skills so they can learn to swim back to the side, hold on and climb out when they are strong enough.
Our structured classes work towards this and are also fantastic for bonding with your little one, as well as enjoying yourselves in a fun relaxed atmosphere, which we always ensure is at your little one’s own pace including underwater swims. Babies use their natural reflexes when they are in water, so it is always a good idea to start as soon as you can, as swimming is a great workout and helps to strengthen their muscles and also increases alertness.
For toddlers we follow the STA Stanley Awards, so again little ones can gain water confidence and build a foundation to swim unaided. For this age group we still sing songs and have fun with games and also start to teach the basic strokes, continuing with water safety skills and teaching your toddler to hold on, turn, then push off the side to swim to you independently. Classes will focus on floating, learning to tread water, rolling, push and glides, diving for sinkers and more.
Swimmers Academy is for our older swimmers where we focus on stroke technique and stamina, classes run for any age from Beginners and go through to Gold also incorporating Lifesaving Awards.
All teachers are fully qualified with specialist training for your little ones. Our classes are child led to ensure each child is taught and developed at their own pace.

The best introduction to football training for 3-4 year olds
Parents, we know how hard it can be to find an activity to keep your little-ones active, engaged and learning something new.
That’s why we started Foot-Tech First Touch…
After years of coaching football, we developed a curriculum specific to toddlers, pre-schoolers and reception children.
The sessions are 30 minutes long and guarantee:
It’s the perfect intro to football training and helps them gain the skills to give them a massive head start for the future.
We are outdoors all year-round as we believe getting children outside and active is one of the best things for their well-being, as well as helping them to build resilience in the early years to help them later in life.
Our coaches are some of the most engaging and knowledgeable people you could ever wish to meet.
They’ll guide your child through the first steps of their football journey and help them move onto our full 1-hour sessions once they are ready.
Want to try a free taster session?
You can choose from:
John Smeaton Leisure Centre, LS15 8TA: Wednesdays 5pm-5:30pm/ Fridays 5pm-5:30pm

Does your child love music ?

During a Pat-a-cake Music class, I offer parents and carers the opportunity to make music together in a safe environment, to meet other parents, for children to socialise and have a snack and you can even have a hot cup of coffee too! Classes are suitable from 6months- 3 years.
All the resources used are especially created by Pat-a-cake to enhance your little ones musical development from an early age as well as develop other key skills such as confidence, language skills, communication, gross motor skills plus many more.
With 17 years experience teaching music I am passionate about the importance of learning music from an early age and as a mum of two I understand that the time you spend with your little one is so precious and goes so quick. Finding a class that suits you both is so important.

Deliver a specifically designed programme for each age group with energy, enthusiasm and excitement.
“Be prepared to run across the jungle, wade through the quick sand or sprint through Rugbytots Valley avoiding all the smoking boulders.”
Age 2 – 3.5: Youngest classes require full parent participation and offer a fantastic opportunity to spend quality time with your child whilst they learn new skills, meet new friends and have an exciting introduction to Rugby.

Age 5 -7: Older age group classes really start to prepare children for life after Rugbytots. The same structure is followed but these sessions involve advanced team games and ensure that the basic skills of rugby are coached in the right way by maintaining small class numbers.
