AN EXTRA baby class has been added due to high demand at Hexham Community Centre.

Bloom Baby Classes Northumberland and North Tyneside have added an additional Caterpillar Club for babies aged six weeks up to six months to their timetable.

The new Caterpillar Club will start on Tuesday, January 11 at 12.15pm, which will run as well as the fully booked 11am class.

Bubbles, parachutes, lights, puppets, songs, and more are used to help sensory development.

The international company was set up to improve parent and child bonding, along with children's early development.

The class will include various activities to stimulate the baby's physical, social, cognitive, and sensory development. Each week will have a different theme, meaning each class is a new experience for babies to enjoy.

With a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, parents can make new friends with other class members. Numbers are capped to encourage a more comfortable atmosphere.

The classes are set to a bespoke soundtrack.

Bloom Baby Classes received the Whatson4kids Award for Most Loved Baby Activity 2021, as well as being shortlisted as some of the best baby classes in the North.
