Great senses summer sessions with Hana. My little girl absolutely loved the sensory and messy play. Hana is great making effort to speak with everyone in the sessions and learning all the babies names! The activities varied each week and there was always something new to try. Basing the sessions around books worked really well and allowed for stories to be shared at the end. We will be looking out for more holiday sessions in the future! Thank you
Really great class such a good variety! The teachers are so friendly and make you feel so welcome!
Petals classes were fantastic for both my sons, we did a whole range from Senses and Yoga to Music. Both myself and the babies absolutely loved everything about the classes! We had a lot of fun and the boys had so much to see, do and look at. I especially loved baby yoga as it was a chance to just spend some time with my son and relax. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough! Hana is an incredible class leader too.
