Classes for 3 - 5 Year Olds
Chiswick, West London
We have a wide selection of classes for 3-5 year olds, which run on a weekly or termly basis. Our classes are a mixture of adult participation and drop-off sessions, encouraging confidence and independence away from home and nursery. If classes are not listed as “DROP OFF” in description, then children must attend with an adult.
**Spaces are limited in each class to ensure a calming environment and one-one-attention**
Mini Yogis ( 3 - 5 years)
Yoga is for any age! You are never too young to start! Our drop-off classes for children aged 3-5 years offer kids a chance to develop their confidence and independence away from home and nursery, in a safe, stimulating environment. Our fun, interactive class supports the development of children’s creative expression, concentration, and social skills. Through yoga shapes, games and stories our teacher encourages an understanding of spatial awareness, benefiting co-ordination and motor skills. Songs, rhythms, movement and stretches are used to encourage self-expression, whilst simple relaxation techniques help children learn from a young age the importance of feeling calm.

Creative Coding (3 - 5 years)
Did you know coding is on the curriculum from 5+?
MAMA.codes offers fun and creative after-school coding clubs and holiday workshops, that support the Computing curriculum. Our unique approach to teaching coding and computational thinking is the ideal launchpad for young children. We use storytelling and jokes to build fluency, plus plenty of “unplugged” physical coding games. See examples at www.mama.codes/gallery. We use tablet-based free coding app ScratchJr – so it’s helpful if children bring an iPad or Android tablet with them (Kindly ensure that the tablet is fully charged and that the Scratchjr app is installed and functioning prior to class). Children learn generic coding concepts they can then transfer to any other coding language.
When: Fridays 4.00pm – 4.45pm, (21st Sept – 7th Dec, half term 26th Oct)
Price: £203.50 per term
