How does the Little Starts Gift Card work?

The Little Starts Gift Card is the UK's leading multi-brand gift card for baby, toddler and preschool classes. It can be used to pay for 10,000+ children's activity classes from 100+ brands across the UK. Gift fun, friends and memories to shape a lifetime.. Tap here to see how it works

What is a baby, toddler and preschool class?

From singing to splashing and dancing to doodling baby, toddler and preschool classes are children’s
activity classes for little ones aged 0 – 5 and their parents.

Classes include swimming, ballet, music, dance, drama, football, sensory, languages and more.
Classes are often weekly, and give parents a reason to get out of the house, make new friends and build
a support network whilst, most importantly, helping their little ones develop.

Gifting baby, toddler and preschool classes helps families make amazing memories together, instead of
gifting them more toys and clothes destined for landfill- a win-win!

I'm not sure how much to gift! How much are children's activity classes?

With over 10,000+ classes per week listed on our website, prices per class vary, but the average cost per class is £8. Some one off classes, for example First Aid, may be more.

Our most popular gift card amount is £30.

Some Activity Providers allow customers to book one off sessions, whilst others prefer customers to book in terms or blocks.

Whatever the amount you choose to gift, it can always be redeemed against classes, as if the class your giftee wants to book costs more than the amount they have on their gift card, they can settle the remaining balance directly with the Activity Provider!
