There are a huge number of fantastic classes for toddlers in and around Queen’s Park and The Kensals.  Rather than endless googling and trawling through sites, you can put your feet up (haha!) and scroll through our bumper round-up of all your local options.

Details were correct as of April 2017, but check the links and/or get in touch with the organisers first 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 (see what’s on for details of regular drop-ins). Oh and if you know of a great class we’ve missed, drop us an email: anna@queensparkmums.com
