Looking for a fun, safe, regular meet-up for parents, babies and toddlers?

Looking for a fun, safe, regular meet-up for parents, babies and toddlers? Join Tiny Diggers – our new group promoting sensory play for babies and toddlers at DIG: An Archaeological Adventure, St Saviourgate in York city centre.

We’ve created sessions designed exclusively for babies and toddlers – a chance to play in a safe, tactile environment which uses textures found in archaeology to introduce touch-based play.

There are two types of sessions: one for those who have not yet learned to walk, and another for mobile youngsters aged up to 4 years. We’re limiting numbers in each session so that we can keep to social distancing guidelines, and will be offering free coffee and biscuits for parents and carers to enjoy as they socialise.

Themed content each week will introduce varied stimuli, from treasure hunts to messy play, created by our Early Years team to help develop fine motor skills and engage all the senses. Fun for your little one, and you, too!

The sessions can be booked as one-offs (£6.50) or in blocks of four weeks (£20). A parent or carer must accompany the child at all times, and we ask that only one adult accompanies each child.
