Local resident

"The Lexi Cinema on Chamberlayne Road - a beautiful boutique cinema with a real community feel, which also donates all its profits to charity. It's staffed by local volunteers, sells great wine, and has one of the most eclectic programmes of any cinema in London! In the summer, they also do outdoor cinema in the local parks..."

All of this is done whilst engaging your baby with songs and movements, providing an excellent opportunity to bond and spend time with your baby and meet other parents and carers to share the experiences of caring for a new baby.

Viva! Sing Spanish @ The Yard

Gracelands Yard,
From birth, infants make no distinction between music, language, singing and speech. Children can imitate the rhythm of a language long before saying the words. Young children often reproduce other languages with perfect pronunciation. Listening to music in a foreign language is a fantastic way of learning single words and phrases in context. Website
