Museum of OxfordSt Aldate's, 40 Pembroke St, Oxford OX1 1DZ
The Museum of Oxford is the only museum dedicated to the history of the city and the University, making it the essential starting point for a visit to Oxford. There is an exciting programme of temporary exhibitions and family events, with regular family activities in the galleries and workshops for children.
MOVE combines therapy and education in a programme which helps children work towards goals that they really want to achieve, which can range from learning to hold their head up by themselves to learning the skills needed to play football with their friends using a pacer. MOVE is unique in that no child is too disabled to use it and works with the child’s parents, teachers and therapists to teach them skills which are then practised in everyday life, enabling parents to be involved in key decision making and instrumental in their child’s development.
Visit our website or call us on 020 7407 5344 to find out more information, speak to a specialist or a parent of a child already on the programme or to visit a school using MOVE.
Our expert course leaders will work with your young explorers to maximise their progression, which can be recorded in the Complimentary ‘RAW Adventure Journal' provided.

Hands up who likes to pretend?! We all know how incredible a child’s imagination is – one minute they’re flying to the moon on a rocket ship, the next they’re sailing away on a pirate ship or chasing a dragon over the hills and at Pyjama Drama we put imagination centre stage.
Our classes are packed with singing, dancing, pretending and play. It's not only lots and lots of fun but Pyjama Drama also helps develop key skills such as confidence, communication and problem solving.

Water Babies runs fun, innovative baby swimming classes across Midshires. Our fully qualified instructors are world class and could have trained as private pilots – three times over – in the time it takes them to qualify with us. With a multi-award winning programme which teaches vital water confidence and safety skills from birth, our overall aim is to teach you to teach your baby to swim. So we’ll always explain why we’re doing everything, as well as carefully demonstrate exactly what to do.
Through carefully structured training, babies can be taught life saving skills such as turning onto their backs or, following a sudden submersion, swimming to the nearest solid object. They grow familiar with what it feels like to fall into water, so that should they ever accidentally fall in they are far less likely to panic and drown. And our results speak for themselves. In the last three years alone, at least ten of our tiny clients have saved their own lives as a result of the skills they learnt at Water Babies – and five of them were just two years old at the time. Water Babies has the only baby/toddler swim programme that is accredited by the ASA (the Amateur Swimming Association) and which links directly to the National Plan for Teaching Swimming. Our teachers have either achieved or are working towards the brand new ASA Diploma in Pre-fundamentals in Baby Swimming.
Water Babies classes run in Aylesbury, Hemel Hempstead, Milton Keynes, Northampton, Buckingham, Banbury, Towcester, Brackley, Coventry, Brandon, Kennilworth, Leamington Spa, Warwick, Meriden. We can’t wait to hear from you so for further details please call 01295 709221 or email email@example.com or visit:
