Babies & Children
We currently have classes at Mothercare Torquay and in Newton Abbot.
Here at Baby Bloom Development we are passionate about postnatal support, early attachment and positive touch. As mums to small children ourselves, Leigh and I fully understand the stresses and worries, as well as the joys, of having a new baby and we are committed to helping you find your flow.
When you come along to one of our sessions, you will always be greeted with a warm smile and made to feel at ease. We pride ourselves on our friendly and relaxed approach which provides the perfect ‘safe space’ to ask questions and seek advice.
It is our firm belief is that ‘it takes a village’ and for this reason when you sign up for a course or a workshop with us you automatically join our tribe of ‘Baby Bloom Buddies’! We promise to continue to support you for as long as you need, through our closed Facebook group, regular meet-ups and constant availability. You will also receive our Baby Bloom Buddies Card which fully embraces our community spirit.
You can rest assured that we are here to support you throughout your parenthood journey.

Every Class Your Child Needs in One, For Great Value and Even More Fun!
Of course, you want the best for your child and they are growing and learning so fast that every minute together is precious.
A regular class is a great way to spend focused time playing together, learning new things and enjoying each other’s company.
But what kind of activity should you choose….?
A Music Class? Yoga? Massage? Physical Play? Baby Sign Language? Sensory Play?
Perhaps you like the sound of them all. Each brings so many benefits for your little one, and would be lots of fun – but how will you fit them all in?
Well now it’s Easy!
At Tots Play Paignton and Torquay there is no need to choose, you and your baby or toddler can enjoy all these experiences and more in one fun-filled programme.
Tots Play offers a complete programme of classes, parties, information products and resources to give you the confidence and inspiration needed to play, connect and enjoy special time with your baby or toddler in ways which will enhance their development.
