The BBC has named Giovanna Fletcher and Nigel Clarke as hosts of a brand new CBeebies show called The Baby Club.
Bringing up babies can pass by so fast, especially when you’re juggling the rest of your life at the same time.
Enter CBeebies’ exciting new TV show, The Baby Club, which aims to help families across the country share more precious time with their babies and toddlers as they explore everyday objects through discovery, play, song, and story.
The Baby Club – presented by Giovanna Fletcher and Nigel Clarke – is the channel’s first programme dedicated to engaging both adults and infants.
Speaking about the show, Nigel revealed: “The Baby Club was an absolute gem to make and be a part of.
“It’s not often you find a programme that just warms your heart but this is definitely one. It speaks to all ages whether you are a parent, a child or a baby and I’m proud to be part of it.”
The CBeebies programme will appeal to all types of parents, but especially wants to engage stay at home and working mums and dads, parents who may not have access to baby groups locally or parents with older children who feel they don’t have as much time to spend with their babies.
Giovanna added: “Presenting The Baby Club has been an absolute pleasure and I can’t wait to share it with you all.
“As a mother of three, the importance of play-time and making special memories with babies and toddlers during those early stages is incredibly important to me. I’m sure it’s going to appeal to such a wide variety of families across the country.”
Foundations Years Trust and the charity Peeple, which supports parents and learning, have been involved in both the development of the series and in ensuring The Baby Club accurately reflects best practice.
Sheffield University’s Professor Jackie Marsh and Professor Harding of Middlesex University have also contributed to the development process, together with a child psychologist and special practitioners in the child development field.
“The Baby Club is an excellent programme that will support learning for both children and parents. Its design principles map well on to what we know from research about how babies and toddlers, and adults, learn from television,” Professor Marsh explains.
“It offers a valuable model of interactive and positive parenting, and families will have fun – and learn new skills – when watching it together.”
The Baby Club has been executive produced by Michael Towner Commissioning Editor for CBeebies and is made by Three Arrows Media in association with Tiny House Productions and CMP Productions.
