TinyTalk's award-winning musical Baby Signing Classes are coming to Gloworm. Ever wanted to learn how to communicate with you baby from an early age? Learning to sign is just the trick! This activity is perfect for babies, so make sure you pop along to one of these brilliant free taster sessions. 

Messy play more your thing? Why not drop in and join the fun with the Messy Monsterz gang. Their brilliantly messy play sessions are great for your tiny ones to explore the environment around them and to be creative with all the messy things you can think of. A brilliant activity for babies that is key in developing communication and language, whilst also encouraging physical development and is a whole lot of fun!

How brilliant were Jo Jingles last year? Your tiny ones really loved shaking and stomping with Big Jo and his friends, so we just had to invite them back for more musical fun. Jo Jingles are one of the UK’s most popular pre-school music groups. We know your babies (and ours) love making lots of noise in this super popular session. Come along and join in the silly fun in the tiny tots tent. 

Tumble Tots

Tumble Tots prides itself on being the UK’s first structured physical play program for children from 6 months to 7 year olds. Tumble Tots allows children the opportunity to participate in an active physical play program using specially designed colourful equipment.

Tumble Tots strives to provide children with essential skills for life whilst contributing to their recommended 3 hours of physical activity that is needed every day!

Each 45 minute Tumble Tots sessions has been carefully designed and structured to enhance a child’s physical development skills alongside their social and cognitive development.

There are five different Tumble Tots classes, which are all structured to reflect the emotional behaviour, physical change and ability according to the age of the child.

Above all else we aim to give children the playful start for future success and to more importantly build skills for life!!

Soul Sensory

Soul Sensory is an exciting community interest company that provides a 'safe space' sensory tent to be enjoyed by young and old alike!

The idea and development came about from one Mum's experience of taking her son who has autism to festivals but feeling there was a need for a safe environment for her son to enjoy calming activities that help him and many others process sensory information.



SOCATOTS is the world's leading provider of football-related physical development activities for young children aged between six months and five years.

Children attend regular sessions with other children of a similar age, where they master both motor and social skills under the watchful eye of highly qualified coaches.

A unique feature of SOCATOTS is the active participation of parents in the sessions.
