Early Years activities at the Corn Exchange

This Autumn, we’re excited to have lots more classes and workshops for familes.

We have a whole range of activities to entertain the whole family this autumn.

This season we’ve added a second Rhyme and Shine session, created new family Sunday workshops and made many of our sessions pay-as-you-go so you can decide each week which classes to attend.

Rhyme and Shineis our relaxed singing group for parents and their under-2s which takes place in our Learning Centre on a Tuesday morning. Due to popular demand, we have added a second session so classes now run at 10:15am and 11:30am. These sessions are a brilliant way to meet and socialise with other parents as well as assisting child development. The price includes a free hot drink from the Corn Exchange after the session.

Play to Learn (Pre-School) sessions are creative and active explorations of different letters through stories, songs and games. Come along to the Learning Centre on Wednesdays at 9:30am for 45 minutes of fun. Adults do not need to stay - unless they want to join in!

Toddler Dance is a movement group for toddlers on Wednesdays at 10:30am. Combining props and simple story-songs, these classes promote confidence, coordination and rhythm through fun active sessions. All children must be accompanied by an adult and parents and carers can join in too!

Story Store is run by Rosanna Walker from Debutots. Incorporating songs, rhymes, actions and plenty of opportunities to join in, every session is themed around a different children’s storybook and aims to create a multi-sensory storytelling environment. Come on a different adventure each week in the Learning Centre on Thursdays at 10:30am. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Creation Station creates art-based adventures with your little ones. Baby Discover sessions(10:45am-11:30am) open a world of creativity for you and your baby (5-18 months) while Little Explorers sessions are perfect for toddlers between 15 months and 5 years old (9:30-10:15).

Altogether Sundays explores some well-loved stories with your little ones through imaginative play, singing and craft activities. Taking place from 10am-11:30am, this term we’ll be exploring:

14 Oct- Room on the Broom

4 Nov- The Very Hungry Caterpillar
