I would be so grateful if anyone can recommend a brilliant nursery for a one year old and if there are any good drama groups run on a Saturday for the 7 to 10 age range ? I also need to find riding lessons, a gymnastic club or trampolining, well both ideally. Tae kwon do and baby swimming recommendations would also be brilliant.
Thank you so much

I'm off to bed too but I'll be back in the morning
Can recommend the nursery I used but not in ck

Morning. They do baby swimming at Cheltenham Park Hotel Gym. There is a Nursery in the village that seems to be used by many,its more of playgroup type affair not open early or late if you see what i mean,so great for fun or if you work school hrs. I used Fox cubs in the reddings and dd was very happy there. There are many toddler groups and a couple of playgroups and also the scghool has a Kindergarten. There are a couple of local dance schools who do lessons in the village halls Janet Marshall and Dance works. There is also brownies guides cubs etc. I would google drama and the other things. It is a nice place to live tho,ive been here years you could atually live here and never have to go anywhere else and the schools are excellent.
Dolly twat i wonder if i know you <<wories about contraversial remarks made on mn>> grin

Ishani Thu 12-May-11 08:58:28

I think I shall need a job looking at house prices so I'm after a 8am to 6pm nursery at least at the begining whilst I sort myself out.
I have applied to the juniors ledkr and holy aposole but they were not very friendly the head at CK seems much nicer, are you pleased with it ?

DollyTwat Thu 12-May-11 14:22:14

Ledkr You'll have to dm me to see if we know each other! Or come to the meet up and you can see!

The nursery I used is Bushbabies in prestbury. Very good open from 8-6 very structured and clean. Lots to recommend.

Not sure about ck local stuff though, it's a nice community though, that I do know

ledkr Thu 12-May-11 20:28:09

dolly what meet up? Please tell,id be worried tbh as its a bit posh arounbd here and im not grin id have to name change after. Do you live in c kings? Im suprised if you dont know me,i was the famous pg woman who rode my bike everywhere haha
ishani house prices are ridiculous,luckily i bought years ago.C kings schools are really good,quite academic and strict,Dd needs that tho,Glenfall is also lovely and has an after school club too.

as far as I know there are no nurseries in CK for under 2 years 9 months - I couldn't find one anyway! Bushbabies on Prestbury road very good but not that close.

Can also endorse Theater Studio on saturdays and Happy Days gym club, held at the infants school.

There are also regular Ju-jutsu classes at the infants school, better than karate world in town - but that's just my opinion!

both infants school and juniors in CK are very good - I have a child at both

DontCallMeBaby Sat 09-Jul-11 12:02:48

I would second Happy Days for gymnastics. Yrs 1 and 2 are 4-5 on a Thursday at CK Infants, and Yrs 3, 4 and 5 are 5-6, plus they have some other sessions.

There's trampolining at Cheltenham leisure centre apparently, but DD goes to GL1 in Gloucester, with Aspire Springers. We live in Leckhampton and it's actually easier to get to and from Gloucester than it would the other side of Cheltenham (especially as we come back in the rush hour). You might well find the same in CK.
