Parent and Baby courses

9th August 17

Come and meet other new local parents, we are offering Baby Massage and Baby Empowered Parenting Courses this autumn.

Baby Massage

After previous successful courses the wonderful Liz Thompson, we are happy to announce another four session course in September and October.

Liz, who runs the course locally in Islington including at Neals Yard, will be also running four weekly sessions. The sessions are 9:30am – 11am on Fridays 22nd, 29th September and 6th, 13th October 2017.  Please contact the nursery office if you would like to join these sessions. If you will have a young, not yet mobile baby then, please do book a place through the office. Places are limited as the group size will be small.

For booking, contact nursery office: 0207 700 2445 /

Nappy changing, feeding and crying welcome. The course is suitable for babies from birth to crawling.

Baby Empowered Parenting Course

The autumn term Baby Empowered Parenting Course will run over two morning sessions, on Fridays 3rd and 17th November 2017, 10:15am – 12:15pm at our nursery (28 North Road, N7 9EY). The course will include discussion time, information, film clips and the opportunity to meet other new parents. The cost will be £50 per individual attending, or £90 for a couple – this is the fee for both sessions, and will include a parenting book for you,  as well as other handouts and information. Feedback from previous sessions was extremely positive and we a delighted to be able to offer this course again.

Our Principal, Miss Emma Gowers, has run the Empowered Parenting Course for seven years now, and this popular course is designed for parents of 0-6 year olds and runs over five sessions. She noticed a number of parents arriving at Empowered Parenting saying ‘I wish I’d done this course two years ago’. She also noticed as a parent herself that the information available for expectant and very new parents is limited to the practicalities of birth and so on only. Miss Gowers feels strongly that there is lots of information about the first year or so which isn’t prioritised for new parents, and which she feels would benefit the child and family.

Parents can undertake this course, which would then give them food for thought, and some ideas to use until their child was 12-18 months old, at which point they could then join the main Empowered Parenting Course if they wished to.
