The Toddlers’ Workshop offers classes from 3 months up to the age of 4 years, every age group focuses on perceptual skills necessary for that specific age.

Lynette says that, “at BabyGym we assist in de-stressing and relaxing the baby, facilitate bonding, assist with sensory awareness and develop body awareness, muscle tone, posture and spatial orientation. Our programmes have been designed to guide Mom and Dad from pregnancy, through birth and through each of the physical development milestones.” To find out more, contact Lynette at,
