August 2020 Update:  We are in the process of updating the Weekly Classes and Playgroups pages of the site for the Autumn term.  Due to Covid restrictions, this is harder than normal as class providers are still confirming details/venues.  Please check all details directly with class/group providers before travelling.

Playgroups and Classes

North Leeds and the surrounding areas are a fantastic place for bringing up children and there is plenty going on for children.

Below is a list of all the local playgroups and drop in sessions throughout the week and also details of children’s activities and classes available across our area. Please contact the organisers directly if you would like to find out further information or to confirm class times or costs.


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.

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 LittleLions-Rugby ‘Toddler Only’  sessions can be found at the Parish Hall, Thorner. Our sessions run from 11.30am – 12.30pm on a Thursday. What’s interesting is that our sessions run immediately after the Thorner Toddler Group. This means parents/Carers can either join the Playgroup at 10.00am and then stay on for our Toddler Class, or just come at 11.30am, just for the LittleLions-Rugby session.

Don’t be put off by the word ‘rugby’. Our sessions are more like a multi-sports session where we have included a rugby ball at every opportunity because of our love for the game. No experience or knowledge of the game is needed. All your child needs (girl or boy) is the capacity to have ‘FUN!’

We offer a full and exciting morning for the children which they all thoroughly enjoy, not to mention it gives the parents/carers a time to relax before taking up the reins again for the rest of the day.

Thursday: 11.30am – 12.30pm,  The Parish Centre, Thorner, LS14 3ED

Are you a new parent and love the outdoors?

Join our baby walking group for no-commitment and (very) informal meet-ups with other new parents! We’re a group of like-minded parents who arrange times to walk around Leeds, Harrogate and Wakefield, including a mixture of buggy and sling walks.

MUMMY MEET-UPs, supportive 6 weekly discussion group meet-ups for new Mums.

Becoming a new Mum is an incredible, yet intense time.

Meet other Mums at a similar stage in motherhood.  Weekly supportive, socially distanced discussion groups.  Baby’s needs are of course always cared for, but the focus here is also on Mum wellbeing.

This course of 6 weekly get-togethers is for all new Mums out there.  Our sessions are relaxed and informal with zero pressure for you (or baby!) to conform.  We focus on creating non-judgmental, relaxed space to discuss all things motherhood.  Never before has having a new baby been so isolating, we are here to support you.

Discussions revolve around the Mums who attend; conversations will go where they need to go… but we also have some hugely beneficial new motherhood insights to share.  Topics include the truth about baby brain, expectation versus reality, mum-guilt, building your village of support and importance of postpartum nourishment (full list can be found on our website).

Participants will also be gifted access to our recorded ‘on-demand’ baby massage course to watch at home.

Baby signing is a fantastic skill to learn with your little one, enabling you to communicate with each other from an early age and encourage their social development.

Our great fun, music based classes support your family, as you discover the benefits for yourself!

Sing and Sign Babes is a gentle 5 week music and sensory course with an emphasis on communication. Suitable from birth to 6 months. This lovely class explores eye contact, gesture, and anticipation, together with lots of cuddles, tickles and some simple signs. All building the framework for communication, brought to you using our magic ingredient – music!

The Stage 1 course introduces 6-14 month olds, and their families, to the wonders of baby signing. Over 100 signs are covered in the 10 week course, relating to daily routines (like meal times, getting changed, bedtime etc), animals, vehicles and lots more.

The Stage 2 course gives 14-30 month olds, and their families, the opportunity to enjoy more complex topics, with more physical exertion! More animals to encounter, colours to explore, and lots of weather conditions to experience over the 10 weeks! As children develop speech, having the support of a physical gesture alongside emerging words, makes it much less frustrating for everyone!
