The Best Bournemouth Kids Clubs and Activities
Are you looking for Bournemouth Kids Clubs and Kids Activities? Here at Club Hub we have put together our highly recommend list of Bournemouth Baby Classes, Toddler Activities, Kids Clubs and Kids Activities to get in touch with.
We know how hard it is to keep our children occupied and entertained during the holidays and how important this time is for them to relax, have fun and ultimately make wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. In this day and age both work commitments and immensely busy lifestyles can prove a huge burden on parents and carers alike.
With a lack of holiday club options and variety in the Bournemouth/Christchurch area Victoria and her husband Justin decided to launch their very own holiday club, Pouncing Panthers in 2015…but with a difference!
Their aim: to get children off their tablets and screens and into the big outdoors! Their motto: ‘Play the Way nature Intended’. Lack of activity is a prime contender to child obesity in this country and the lack of interaction with others is also effecting children’s mental health.
Pouncing Panthers is a screen free zone that specialises in fun and interactive activities to keep our children happy, stimulated and entertained.
Our activities include but aren’t limited to; Arts and Crafts, Football, Hockey, Dodge ball, Cricket, Den Building, Woodland Adventures, Litter Picking, Beach Activities, French, Performance Arts and Street Dance.
With such a wide variety of activities there’s always something to suit everyone and some children get introduced to activities that they may never have experienced before! Needless to say, our children never get bored!
Our activities are geared to building confidence and self-esteem whilst making friends and keeping fit is a subliminal bi-product! We often find that the children have enjoyed themselves so much that they don’t want to go home at the end of the day!!
This summer, thanks to BCP Council and HAF funding (Holiday Activity and Food Programme) we are introducing Nutrition and Cookery sessions into our timetable. The children will be rustling up their very own delicious and nutritious meals and eating them for their lunch!
We are super excited about Summer 2021! Book your children in on this link and allow your children to create some wonderful memories with us!

Pipling’s Nature Babies
Pipling’s Nature Babies groups are suitable for expectant mums and pre-crawling babies with a focus on supporting parental well being through guided grounding and mindfulness practices. Each class has a flow rather than a structure with the opportunity to explore nature and make beautiful creations to explore your senses and your babies. Nature is the perfect sensory experience for your baby, and offers you both the opportunity to build community support and connection with like minded families.
All classes include complimentary tea and cake, seating and shelter and wooden toys for your baby to explore. There is a focus on being rather than doing, with no expectations for your baby to behave in a particular way, both come as you are and be accepted. You can use the space to share, no solutions or fixes will be offered, you can understand your experiences into parenthood with non-judgemental support.
Sun & Moon Baby Hub
Hi my name is Lesley and I run Sun and Moon Baby groups from my relaxing and nurturing Early Years studio unit in Christchurch. I am an experienced and qualified IAIM Infant Massage Instructor, Baby Yoga instructor and I also have a Ba Hons and over 25 years experience within the Early years sector.
My baby massage and baby yoga courses offer parents/carers an opportunity to learn skills that have many benefits for both baby and them. These can include early communications, bonding, relaxation, improved sleep routines and also help with digestive issues, such as colic, constipation and wind. These courses also offer parents an opportunity to meet other new parents, socialise and share the many joys (and sometimes tribulations!) of early parenthood.
All sessions are completely baby led, so if baby is feeding, sleeping (or maybe just not feeling the love for massage or movement that day) then no worries, with each and every session being a duration of 90 minutes, there will always still be plenty of time for play, relaxation, catchups and refreshments.
Having my own studio used solely for these groups allows me to ensure that the room is always baby and parent friendly, the groups are calm, inclusive and unhurried and a warm and friendly welcome is always guaranteed.
In addition to the above courses I also run sessions that are bookable on a one off basis, these include: Baby Relaxation Sensory sessions where parents/carers can chat and chill as babies relax with soothing music, lights and sensory exploration and little movers Play and Learn sessions. All groups are kept small and purposeful and are uniquely and sensitively tailored to the parents and babies who attend.
Private friendship groups and 1-1 sessions can also be catered for.

Dorset Holiday Clubs
Dorset Holiday Clubs is a holiday club with a difference: we offer full-day packages of workshops and activities that take place across dozens of venues in and around Bournemouth. The process is simple:
- Parents drop off their children with us at the first venue of the day (like a ceramics studio)
- Our staff supervise, accompany, lead and entertain the children throughout the day across multiple local venues (such as rock climbing and bowling)
- Parents pick up their children from the last venue of the day. (such as a bowling alley).
Our morning workshops have an educational element, and include activities such as ceramics, surfing, kayaking, martial arts and golf. Our afternoon activities are just for fun, and include bowling, rock climbing and crazy golf.
Everything is included in the price, including transport between venues, lunch, drinking water and sun cream!
What’s more, we have three stackable 5% discounts – those booking in June can save up to 15%!
And for parents’ peace of mind, our staff to child ratio is 1:7, and each child is given a GPS tracker just in case they get separated from the group!

“My son absolutely loves Baby Theatre, after coming at Christmas we knew we’d have to come back. So pleased we’ve booked up until the end of June because I can see it’s going to be the highlight of his week coming. He went to a different baby group and was shy and didn’t enjoy himself very much but came to Baby Theatre today and was so entertained, loved the water, bubbles and lights and was having an amazing time dancing & singing. Emma is so lovely too and really engages with the children. I would so strongly recommend this group, it’s reasonably priced compared to other local groups too! Thank you very much xx” – Tasha Charlton
Tappy Toes Dorset
Tappy Toes run active and energetic dance and movement classes for boys and girls aged 6 months to 5 years. Our classes are specifically designed to instil a lifelong love of dance and movement into our little dancers.
We use a wide variety of music from different genres, colourful and varied props and fantastic reward schemes (Including stickers and certificates) to encourage our young dancers to keep coming back term after term!
Don’t just take our word for it, here is what one of our Tappy Toes mummies, Sarah Wood, has to say,
‘My daughter had become really shy and clingy due to lockdown and Tappy Toes has completely brought her out of her shell. It’s been amazing to see her develop and her confidence grow after just a three-week trial! We’re now signed up for the term and can’t wait for our weekly classes.’
Classes running in Bournemouth, Poole and Blandford.

Fledgling love parent and baby wellness
Fledgling Love Parent and Baby Wellness is a family run business offering hypnobirthing classes, breastfeeding support, baby massage, baby yoga, sensory play, and tummy time fun. New Nature classes will be coming in September, Fledgling Bumps and Baby’s and Fledgling Nature Tots.
Throughout the summer we will be running Baby Massage, Baby Yoga and Sensory Play and Tummy Time classes.
Baby massage is a nurturing class for you and baby, enabling you to bond with your baby through touch. Baby massage teaches parents the skills to calm and nurture their baby using gentle, soothing massage strokes. Massage can aid digestion, colic and wind and help baby sleep. The classes are completely baby led, do as little or as much massage as baby is happy to do. If baby cries or needs a feed do not worry, just continue massage when baby is happy to do so. At the end of each class refreshments and cake are served, giving parents the chance to sit and chat with one another.
Baby Yoga is based on traditional yoga movements which have been used to improve health and wellbeing. Baby yoga sessions include massage and songs to relax and captivate baby’s attention, increasing the fun. Baby yoga shares some benefits with baby massage, it eases digestion as stretches can help relieve colicky pains and wind. Baby yoga stimulates baby’s senses, through a variety of different stimulus: movement, touch, songs and stretching.
Tummy Time sensory play and fun is a lovely introduction for baby for some tummy time play, with lots of sensory toys to explore. We include lots of singing and have some yoga stretches that benefit tummy time added into the class.
