Rhythm Time classes are full of fun and engaging activities. The classes in St Albans, Harpenden and Welwyn Garden City combine music and multi-sensory experiences, all designed to encourage the development of babies and young children.
What can parents and children expect from Rhythm Time?
Expect music, action songs, movement, instruments, props, puppets, bubbles, cuddles and more! Rhythm Time is the perfect time for you and your child to become absorbed in new sights and sounds. Babies and toddlers love the 30 minute classes. Rhythm Time puppets Rat-a-Tat Rabbit and Arabella also make an appearance at each class and children love seeing their cuddly, friendly faces.
Classes are run by Carly, a qualified primary school teacher and a mother to two young children. Carly uses her experience to ensure that classes are high quality, engaging sessions where babies and toddlers learn through play.
Your child will experience a variety of different types of music, from Mozart to Nursery Rhymes and Bach to original Rhythm Time songs. They will even have the opportunity to play simple instruments, as well as sing songs. Carly has boxes filled with woodblocks, tambourines, bells, cymbals, maracas and triangles, all waiting for little hands! Check out this video to find out more about Rhythm Time.

How does Rhythm Time benefit young children?
Rhythm Time classes include lots of activities that you can also recreate at home, from special bonding activities to activities that increase your little one’s listening skills. Each session is limited in numbers, to ensure a nurturing environment where your child can gain in confidence and develop their social skills.
There are songs and rhymes which help to develop language skills, as well as your child’s understanding of basic rhythm and pitch. Sessions also include actions and moving to music which promote physical development as well as increased body awareness and balance.
What age range do Rhythm Time classes cater for?
Rhythm Time offer Baby and Toddler classes. There is something for everyone, from newborn to 3 years old. Contact Carly to find out which class is most suitable for your child. Classes are split into three age groups:
Young Babies (0-6 months) welcoming, gentle sessions that introduce babies to new sights and sounds through a variety of multi-sensory and bonding activities. Classes are also a chance to meet other new parents, relax and enjoy time with your new baby.
Older Babies (0-14 months) encourage babies to explore their environment with a range of sensory activities. There are instruments to play, songs and actions, as well as tummy time activities, crawling and discovering new ways to learn and play.
