autumn kids classes

We’ve put together this handy reference guide to local kids classes and activities that take place from September until the Christmas holidays – baby classes, toddler classes, and classes for older children. And when we say local, we mean local, with all the classes featured here available in Twickenham, Teddington or The Hamptons, or very close by.

There’s a lot here, so the listings are split into four sections to help you find what you’re looking for: 1) Creative, Craft & Forest School; 2) Drama, Dance & Singing; 3) Music & Developmental; and 4) Sport & Movement. 

As always, if there’s anything you’d like to see added, just let us know. We have endeavoured to make sure that all the information here is correct and up to date, but please do also let us know if you discover any inaccuracies.

NB We have included pricing information where possible here, but it’s worth speaking direct with the classes as most offer a free trial and lots offer sibling discounts, but some also charge a membership fee. Most classes that charge by the term will also allow you to join mid-term – if there is space – for a reduced rate.
