How it works

As part of our exciting new Baby Bundle offer families will be able to enjoy monthly social and learning activities in a subscription package which includes this mix of three sessions each month:

  • We start the bundle from the first session you are able to attend
    (Please contact our Family events programme coordinator if you have any further questions about the schedule. We try to be as flexible as possible)
  • Once a month 1-hour-long digital zoom session, with activities linked to the collection
  • Once a month 1-hour-long family sensory social event in the learning studio, encouraging bonding with your baby and other families
  • Once a month 1-hour-long baby-centred learning activity in the galleries
    Note that each of the above activities are offered in the morning and afternoon and subscribers can choose which they prefer
  • PLUS regular emails to subscribers with details of what's planned for the coming month's baby bundle activities

MONTHLY ACTIVITIES SCHEDULE

There are three baby activities each month. Subscribers can choose one of the twice-daily one-hour sessions on the day. Activities are always on Wednesday.

** CHANGES FROM MARCH 2024 **

From March 2024, participants will receive a monthly online resource instead of an online Zoom activity, along with their Museum and Social session.

The morning session will start half an hour later at 10.30am. The afternoon session remains at 2.30pm.

Please email families@ashmus.ox.ac.uk if there are any questions.
