I’m sure we all agree that we have never been so grateful for our digital age as we are now, managing our time in self-isolation!
The multitude of options available on the web can, however, be incredibly overwhelming as we try to find our way to what we are looking for. Over time, I have become aware of some wonderful local baby & toddler groups that have now converted to online classes.
I know how busy life as a mom becomes, so I thought I would list a few of the local classes to make life a little easier for you over this time. The wonderful part about joining local online classes for your little ones, is that it also helps you feel a little more connected & a little less ‘isolated’.
Most of these are local to the Richmond borough, which means that once ‘social distancing’ is lifted, you & your little ones will be able to meet your new ‘virtual’ friends!

An award winning preschool dance & ballet syllabus offering four stages of ballet dance classes for young children aged 6 months to 6 years, plus a tap dancing class for children over 3 years.
Judging by the keen little dancers on their Instagram feed, this seems like a wonderful way to introduce your little ones to song & dance, while also improving their body awareness & self-control.

Multi-Award Winning Baby Sensory classes tailored to suit babies from birth up to 13 months.
Baby Sensory’s fun & engaging developmental programme is now available at home via Zoom which means that you can also “virtually” meet other parents in your local area and make new friends online. Be sure to join your local sessions so that once things go back to normal you can join your local class and meet your new friends in person too.
