The long Summer holidays are over and it’s time to get back to some structured reality!  But how to keep our kids active, engaged and learning whilst also ensuring they have lots of fun!? Luckily for us, we have a huge range of brilliant classes starting this month in and around Queen’s Park and Kensal Rise that does just that!   What’s more, many of the classes have kindly offered QPM’s lovely discounts so keep your eyes peeled as you scroll the list below.  As classes often need to fit into our busy schedules, we have listed the classes by day.

Details were correct as of September 2017, but check the links and/or get in touch with the organisers first as things can change. Bear in mind too that most classes offer a free trial and sibling discounts – and some may ask for a membership fee.  Although most classes charge per term, many will allow mid term joining (space permitting) and charge for classes remaining.

As always, if you think of a great class we’ve missed, drop us an email to let us know: anna@queensparkmums.com
