New mums moving to Southwark needn’t despair when it comes to finding buddies and baby friendly activities.
Affordable, fun and entertaining – it’s not much to ask for when it comes to amusing your little ones. Southwark has plenty to tick those boxes.
Want to nurture a mini Mozart? Bach to Baby is just the ticket. Trained musicians perform child-friendly classical concerts at St Mary Magdalen on Bermondsey Street once a month. Toddlers are free to roam about while babies can sit on laps and absorb the classical sounds. The next concert is on Friday, 8 June at 10.30am (doors open 10.00am).
Don’t miss a trip to the wonderful Tin Lid just up the road after Bach to Baby. They stock a mixture of quirky independent designers and chic accessories for children.
Forming friendships and developing social skills needn’t be hard with free baby story and rhyme time sessions on offer, suitable for children aged from 0 – 4 years. These take place at the Blue Anchor Library on Southwark Park Road and in John Harvard Library on Borough High Street.
Wow Baby Sensory immersive classes are held in Canada Water studios. The baby programme is designed to stimulate, educate and provide precious memories during the all-important first year of life (from birth to 13 months).
But it’s not just all about the little ones. Find time for yourself at postnatal yoga sessions at Setchell and Longfield Hall on Wednesday mornings. Bring baby along, lay down and take deep breaths as yoga instructor, Liz, leads you through gentle movements to help you relax and reboot.
