Seedlings (formerly Stretch & Sing) is a gentle nature-based music & movement course specifically for babies aged 0 to 9 months. Learn songs, rhymes, lullabies, gentle stretches and holds to soothe, settle & stimulate your baby. Discover the magical effect that music and nature can have on your baby!

Each session combines gentle holds & stretches - to boost growth, rhythm & coordination, ease colic, reflux & wind - with enjoyable songs, rhymes & lullabies that nurture communication, language, bonding, brain development and.. a life-long love of music!


The outdoor environment enables your baby to enjoy a gentle surroundings that will soothe and stimulate rather than overwhelm, while absorbing the calm sensory sights & sounds of Nature - dappled sunlight through the leaves, gentle breeze, birdsong, greenery. You and your baby can also experience all the benefits of time spent outdoors in natural surroundings, such as fresh air & oxygen to boost energy & mood, improve sleep, and strengthen the immune system.

There is 15 mins of social time before every session begins (11am-11.15am) - a great way to meet and chat with other local parents & babies. 

Each 45 min class is relaxed & baby-led: you are welcome to feed or change your baby whenever you need, and remain in the class whatever your baby's mood. There is plenty of recapping throughout the course, enabling you to catch up if your baby has any 'off-days'!

Seedlings can be booked as a block of 6 or 7 sessions (£60 or £70 total) depending on the current term length (as sessions are term time only).

From April to October, Seedlings takes place OUTDOORS in a lovely grassy private outdoor space surrounded by mature trees. In the event of rain, sessions move INDOORS to our spacious, ground floor Hall with easy access for buggies. Indoor toilets are available at ALL sessions. There is also plenty of free parking available.

Being outdoors provides a uplifting and calm environment that helps to boost overall wellbeing, stimulate the senses and soothe emotions.

Participants are advised to dress for the weather. In Autumn and Winter, warm layers are best with a waterproof out layers and waterproof footwear for all adults.

If the forecast is for wet weather, we move into the Hall for all or part of the session.

There is plenty of gentle movement e.g. walking, sways and dips using safe baby yoga holds, to keep everyone (big and small) nice and warm!

There are waterproof groundsheets, padded jigsaw mats and foam mats to provide dry and padded seating. Chairs can also be provided.
