At David Lloyd Clubs, we offer a wide range of free activities for kids of all ages – babies and toddlers included! Fun and educational, our activities will help your child learn new skills, socialise with other children, encounter new experiences, and have fun; all in a safe, supportive environment. We also have a crèche so you can enjoy some me-time in the gym or spa knowing your child is safe and happy in a stimulating and caring environment.
Activities for Babies (ages 0 – 2)
Baby and Me Playtime (0 – 1 years)
Explore different sounds, smells and textures in a relaxed environment, with music, singing and messy play, plus free play where babies can interact with each other.
Babies (ages 0 – 2)
You’re never too young to be active and make new friends! Your child can explore the world around them, gain fresh experiences, play, learn – and have fun.
Baby Club (0 – 2 years)
A relaxed session with other parents where babies can kick and giggle together in a soft play space. Chat with parents, grandparents, nannies and other carers.
Tots Playtime (1 – 2 years)
This mix of activity, dance, singing, messy play and free time helps toddlers burn off energy and develop their communication and social skills.
Activities for Toddlers (ages 3 – 4)
Let’s Play (3 – 4 years)
This class will take kids on a journey of sporting imagination; there will be lots of games which will encourage skill development, introducing the kids to different sports! It will help pre-schoolers develop their coordination, social skills and physical development.
Let’s Discover (3 – 4 years)
The children’s imagination leads this session as they take part in active storytelling, singing, and dancing, helping to develop creativity, social skills and fine motor skills.
Scooter Squad (3 – 4 years)
Our Scooter Squad gets toddlers playing scooter games, mastering new tricks and learning how to stay safe.
Let’s Make (3 – 4 years)
Creative adventures such as painting, sticking, drawing and colouring will spark kid’s imaginations as they have fun exploring different textures and colours. Weekly activities have been designed to help develop fine motor skills, concentration and self-esteem.
Junior Swim (3 months – 16 years)
It’s essential that kids feel safe and comfortable in the water – and our junior coaching classes are the best way to give them the skills and confidence they need.
Our world-class junior swim programme follows the Swim England Swimmer Pathway which helps kids of all abilities develop a full range of swimming strokes and water skills. The class sizes are small to allow for close attention to the kids by our Swim England Level 2 teachers.
Kids are encouraged to learn through fun and games in the water. Starting with our pre-school framework for babies and small children, our expert teachers build up skills via ‘jigsaw piece’ activities that include streamlining, breathing, buoyancy and balance.
When combined, they turn kids into competent, confident and safe swimmers who can use breaststroke, backstroke, butterfly and front crawl. At each stage of the pathway kids will receive a variety of awards and regular reports to ensure they are motivated to continue.
Our crèche provides a safe, stimulating and caring environment with lots of different activities to aid children’s development.
We let kids develop at their own rate, focusing on what they can do rather than what they can’t. Meanwhile you can focus on some me-time in the gym or in the pool, on the courts or in our spa. It’s a win-win!
As you can imagine, the crèche is very popular so please make sure you book beforehand. You can book up to eight days in advance for one or two hours each time.
