Cubano Beach Club

We have a great new venue in Fratton which opened recently – The Cubano Beach Club and they will be holding a Mini Disco for 0-5s every Saturday 10.15 am – 10.45 am at a cost of £3 per child. Hosted by Captain Rey of the Pompey Sea, toddlers can learn a range of dances to English and Spanish classic disco songs. At the start of the class they are dressed up as mini pirates for a fun filled 30 minutes of dancing, with resident puppets Mambo and Choco.  They also have preschool Spanish classes available in the afternoon – Brainy Bambinos Preschool Spanish with no booking necessary.

If you’re looking for a nursery then the Asquith day nursery and pre-school at Port Solent is holding an ‘I am a mathematician’ open day on Saturday. You’ll get to meet the staff and have a look around. They advise that you book in advance through the Customer Care Team on 01753 20 11 22.
