Thee holidays are over (hooray?!) so classes are back on! We’ve saved you the trouble of trawling through tons of sites and have collected details of the local classes for toddlers (you’re welcome, we’re nice like that). If you’re looking for details of classes for babies, see our article on Classes for Babies.

Details were correct as of 1 September 2015, but do check the links and/or get in touch with the organisers as things can change. Bear in mind too that classes tend to fill up quickly and that drop-in spaces may not always be available.
