I’ve also started to look up a few toddler classes here in Dubai. There are plenty to choose from! I’m focusing on swimming, music and sensory play. This week, we tried out Moms and Tots, which is specifically aimed at 12-36 month olds. All the children seemed to be exactly the same age as Arthur – so it worked really well.
He loved it! It’s an hour and a half of messy play, sensory development, singing and dancing – all with the aim developing their fine and gross motor skills. The teacher was enthusiastic and welcoming, and I was really impressed with the variety of activities. We changed to something new every 10 minutes, so Arthur never had a chance to get bored. He particularly loved splatting his hand in paint and then on the paper – something I never would do at home, for fear of the mess! It was really inspirational, and I’ve already taken tips from the class to use at home.
Our class took place at Extreme Fun Motorcity, and the children are allowed into the soft play area afterwards – plus there’s a great cafe, if you wanted to stay for lunch.
Moms and Tots also takes place at Favorite Things Marina Mall and Le Petit Palais in Dubai Mall.

All my photos are from Arthur on another occasion – I was so busy trying not to get paint all over myself, I didn’t managed to take any pictures!
