Zoom classes - Baby Massage and Sign and Learn  

At Highbury Community Nursery, we have been running successful Baby Massage Courses for 10 years. Due to the current restrictions, we have now introduced Online IAIM (International Association of Infant Massage) Baby Massage courses via Zoom

Baby Massage is a pleasurable experience for parents and their baby and has many benefits which may include:

  • enhances bonding through nurturing touch
  • aids relaxation
  • promotes better sleep
  • helps digestion and may relieve colic
  • improves sensory stimulation
  • parent and baby can do the strokes at anytime

The initially introductory cost of the online course is £15 for the 5 sessions. The course is for a group of 4 parents with their baby, so there are limited spaces & booking is essential. 

The courses run on a Monday from 11am-12pm and a Tuesday from 1-2pm each for 5 weeks. 

Please email Cathy for further details and to book a place .  


At Highbury Community Nursery, we have been running successful Makaton Sign and Learn Courses for many years. Due to the current restrictions, we are introducing online Sign and Learn Course via Zoom.

Sign & Learn enables babies from as young as six months to communicate their needs effectively, thus reducing frustration. It helps parents and carers to focus on key words, which when accompanied with signs, greatly aid understanding even before children themselves can form the signs. It is a fun way of interacting with babies and toddlers, they will amaze you by how fast they learn and you will realise just how much they know long before they could ever have used speech to tell you.

Sign & Learn is a fun singing session which incorporates Makaton signs for parents to learn and use throughout the day with their baby.

The course runs on a Tuesday from 10.30-11.30 for 5 weeks at a total introductory cost of £15.
