I'm Lesley

Mum of 2 beautiful girls, wife, primary school teacher with over 15 years experience and it’s my life’s mission to help parents, like you, bond with your children, develop a deep connection and create strong attachment through baby, toddler and child massage, yoga, Signalong, music and play.

Are you looking for...

A way to bond with your baby, strengthen your connection with them and create a safe and secure attachment that will benefit them now and in later life?

Are you looking for...

Opportunities to socialise, be welcomed into a friendly community and have fun with your child?

Do you want to...

Become the parent you were meant to be with confidence in the decisions you make and why you make them? No more overwhelm or constant guilt that you’re not doing what you are supposed to do?

The FATOWL team are committed to Building a warm and nurturing community for parents & children who attend our classes

Our Teachers Care

our team care passionately about...

Nurturing and Supporting you

Our team is here to nurture and support you. You and your child matter and we want to nurture you as you embrace our classes and practice the teachings at home. If you have any questions or need extra support during class - just let us know. We will even make you a cuppa after class.

Teaching you the magic of our classes

There are so many benefits to attending our classes and one of those is that you will leave with a new skill to take home. Whether it is massage, yoga, or Signalong we will take the time to teach you these skills in a way that works for you.

Having fun with you and your little one

We take time to create a fun environment and know that parenting is a serious game. Fun is essential and a fantastic way to bond with your child. It also helps you connect with the other parents in our classes.
