Baby Bites Cookery Workshops in Bishopston – something for all the family!
Baby Bites have cookery workshops for everyone in the family – from pre-schoolers to parents. At the classes for adults, parents will build their confidence in a relaxed environment and learn recipes for tasty simple meals that are suitable for the whole family from the baby up.
They leave with delicious samples of food that they have cooked as well as clear information about childhood nutrition. For kids there are preschool classes in the week, and classes for older children in holidays and some weekends.
We also have inclusive classes for kids with SEND and their siblings, running in the holidays. These are lots of fun and it’s a great way of introducing kids to the fun of cooking. Or finally if it’s a fun and different party you’re after Baby Bites also offers cooking parties for birthdays – including make your own pizzas, chocolate fun and cupcake decorating.
Debutots interactive storytelling and dramatic play classes are wonderful for nurturing your little one’s confidence, imagination, language and literacy skills. With a blend of music, puppets, bubbles, unique interactive stories and drama, Debutots classes are refreshingly different and lots of fun.
Boogie with your little one, play with the parachute, help Geri pop the magic story bubbles and interact with the story by joining in with the words, sounds and actions. Then we all take one big magic jump and find ourselves bringing the story and scenery to life!
Afterwards, as is customary at the end of all good magical imaginary adventures, there is just enough time for tea and cake! Join Geri every Tuesday morning at The Saltcellar, Totterdown Baptist Church, and at The Milk Shed, North Street’s gorgeous Baby Lounge and Café, every third Saturday of the month and from June, every Thursday morning.
Also, do look out for special sessions at Emersons Green Village Hall during the school holidays.

At Gymboree Play and Music we are often told by parents, “You are the only class that manages to engage my child.” This is not a coincidence! It is a reflection of the fact that we are the experts in early childhood development and as such, we know children; we know what works, what engages, and what is appropriate for the many different developmental stages between birth and age 5.
We use music, song, dance and imaginative play to create a wonderful learning experience for all our little ones, using our specially designed equipment as part of our most popular Play and Learn sessions levels 2 – 7.
