It takes a village to raise a child
Portobello is very popular with families, understandably: sandy beaches, lovely and bright, child-friendly seaside cafes, coastal views and and great walks along the prom make it a fantastic place for raising children and growing a family. A local place with an incredibly strong community behind it.
And then there is Tribe Porty: a social enterprise hub for creative events and community co-working in the heart of Portobello.
Part of Tribe Porty is Tribe Family, which is a collective of professionals who offer a range of antenatal and postnatal support as well as classes and events for parents, babies and young children. Tribe Family consists of Birth and Beyond, The Daisy Foundation Edinburgh, Physical Health & Personal Training, Portobello Music School and Tribe Porty Youth Theatre. Our regular classes are open to everyone and there is more information on www.tribeporty.org.
Whether it is fitness you are after, time to focus on yourself in the company of your baby, or you are simply after some relaxation time, to tune into your body – before or after birth, Tribe Family is here for you, each of the instructors and facilitators will welcome you with open arms, a smile and a listening ear. They will guide you through tough patches, lead you with their expertise and introduce you to other like-minded people. All our teachers have family of their own and know what raising children is like – all aspects of it!
Tribe Family is also here to explore creativity for you and your baby/toddler, with the drama and music classes on offer. Sometimes just getting out of the house and meeting other parents and their little ones is all it takes!
You will enjoy the lovely and welcoming, friendly environment that greets you as you walk through that yellow door.
If you don’t manage to stick your nose in and say hi before then, put the 28th January 2017 into your diary: we will hold an Open Day, a Tribe Family Festival, between 10 and 12noon, where you can meet all the organisations in the area, our teachers, instructors, that support young families in the area – come along for free tasters, demos and talks!
We’d love you to come, as we enjoy seeing the Tribe Family grow!
