Belle's Babies

Bewdley

Hi I'm Hannah and I run Belle's Babies. I am a qualified teacher, baby massage instructor and soon to be baby yoga instructor. I have completed and finishing off my qualification as a mental health well-being practitioner as well. Once I had my daughter I decided to build my own business using the experience I had of teaching in both mainstream and special education, as well as training in other fields to create classes for my local area. Working with children has always been my passion and this also allows me to spend more time with my beautiful daughter. 

 

Belle's Babies is based in Kidderminster and the surrounding areas of the Wyre Forest. We offer antenatal, postnatal, baby massage and stay and play sessions. Baby yoga will be arriving early in 2022. 

 

Belle's Babies offers a weekly stay and play session suitable from new born to preschool age. The session is 1hr30mins and follows a slightly structured plan. The children are able to access toys during free play, engage with each other and begin building and developing key skills. The children are also able to join in with snack time, if they wish, where fruit and biscuits are served and children are encouraged to sit together to eat. Children are encouraged, with support of their parents, to help with tidy up time before joining in with a sensory/music/story time session. Each stay and play session has a variety of toys available which are rotated weekly and sensory/crafty activities are also available. The focussed time at the end of the session is themed weekly and children are encouraged to join in with songs, stories, sensory activities and basic signing. Parents are able to have a nice cuppa or coffee and meet other parents. We also encourage parents to join the free Belle's Babies Community Hub group on Facebook where they can support each other and ask for advice and recommendations.

Tiny Talk

Evesham, Droitwich & Worcester North

Baby signing is a fantastic way to develop communication between you and your baby as babies have control over their hand co ordination a long time before their verbal skills develop. No longer do you need to need to interpret cries or guess what your baby needs, they can tell you themselves! Once you have taught your baby to 'talk' you'll find they have plenty to say!

Signing babies are happy babies as it eases frustrations between parent and baby by developing understanding. Baby signing strengthens the bond between parent and their child and lets you engage in real 'conversations'.  So let’s find out what your baby would like to say to you!

Classes are available:

Mondays @Cropthorne Village Hall, 9.45am Toddler, 11.15am Baby

Tuesdays @Lyppard Hub, Worcester, 9.45am Toddler, 11.15am Baby
