Gentle Beginnings

A peaceful and supportive space to nourish your relationship with your new child, to observe and enjoy their development, gain confidence in your abilities as a parent, and make new friends.

A Gentle Beginning is born out of a wish to give gentle support and space to new parents and babies.  We hear a lot about the importance of creating a healthy attachment and bonding with our baby from the earliest weeks and months.  We also know now that babies develop in a healthy, confident way when their needs for self directed development are respected.  Babies also need a quiet simple life. And simple toys!

Groups run on Mondays, from 1.30-3pm, and on Thursdays, from

Your first session is free!  For more information, or to book a place, please contact the school, or speak to the group leader, Dorothy Male, on 01904 612683.
