First Playtime helps sow the seeds for essential life skills, including socialisation, self-motivation and resilience, in children of varying abilities, aged between birth and three years.

We do this in small baby classes and toddler classes, lasting up to 90 minutes, with an experienced Class Leader who will help you interpret child development stages through the medium of self-chosen play.

With many demands on your time and attention at home, it's easy to miss your child's subtler accomplishments. We offer your little one a YES Space, where they're allowed to do (almost) everything, and we offer you a Parent Space where you have the freedom to sit and enjoy your child, away from the pressures of having to do many things at the same time!

If you’d like to know what to expect from a class, and what’s expected of you, please click HERE for a copy of my Class Leaflet. If you’d like to ask me any questions, please give me a CALL, or EMAIL ME. I’ll be happy to hear from you.

yes space

When play is self-chosen, an infant or child can explore freely, sometimes playing for prolonged periods with the same plaything or group of playthings. Almost everything is allowed.


Parent space

The unique child is honoured and respected, each encouraged to follow their own individual path of development, both physically and emotionally, whilst learning to play alongside others.

more than 10 years' experience

Having an experienced Class Leader on hand, to intervene where necessary, means parents relax and observe how their child interacts with others, and their surroundings.
