Baby College Oxford with Bea and Donna
Bea: Donna and I met at toddler group in Old Marston many years ago when our two eldest boys were tiny. We spotted an article about Baby College® on the same day and since we were both looking for what to do when we went back to work we crossed e-mails telling each other about it! It sounded like a fantastic idea and exactly the type of class we would have taken our babies to if it had existed because it offers a fun, structured and varied class with heaps of interesting developmental information for parents.
So we went into business together and brought Baby College to Oxford in January 2005 with an initial 3 classes, soon after acquired the trademark and became proud parents of our own business. Our three classes grew quickly and the subsequent 15 years have flown by. The babies from our first classes are at secondary school now and we love that quite a few still keep in touch. We recently welcomed a mum back to class with her fifth child!! We both love running Baby College and in 2015 launched Baby College nationally as a franchise, it keeps us busy, but the benefits of having a business that fits around school hours and school holidays are huge and have always allowed us to spend plenty of time with our own children.
In 2018 we found our lovely teacher Laura Hill and in 2019 we were joined by Mariam Bibi Gray and Nicola Bonfield who also brought their children to our classes before joining us as teachers.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our award-winning Baby College classes or maybe for a lovely 4 week Baby Massage course first.
