Mini Mover sessions are fun, physical activity aimed at 0-5 year olds, which include songs and movement. Each activity is designed to get parents moving and playing along with their children, whilst developing the child’s fine and gross motor skills, eye tracking and spatial awareness.

  • Mondays from 10.30-11.30am: Loughborough Leisure Centre, LE11 3HE
  • Thursdays from 10-11am: Soar Valley Leisure Centre, Mountsorrel, LE12 7FG
  • Fridays from 10-11am: Elizabeth Park Sports Hall, Thurmaston, LE4 8FN

The prices for each session are £2 for one child, and an additional £1 for each subsequent child.
