12:30 pm - Aimed more at younger, less mobile babies from birth to around 6 months

About Baby Sensory:
Baby Sensory is a fully researched baby development class for babies from birth - 13 months, with activities designed by experts in child development to help promote early learning and development.

But most importantly, Baby Sensory provides an exciting and fun environment full of new experiences for you and your baby to share.The joy and sense of awe that arises from seeing your baby learn and develop is amazing.

What baby wouldn't delight is seeing twinkly fiber optic lights, bubbles, puppets, beautiful textures, breath-taking music, and instruments?

The Programme:
The various baby activities aim to build up a vocabulary of sensory experiences (e.g. visual, auditory and tactile), to enhance physical contact (massage, reflexology, touching, cuddling and rocking) between you and your baby and to promote the development of speech through the use of sign language, music, song and puppets.

Activities vary weekly. All activities are excellent for developing physical, social and emotional, and language skills, co-ordination, awareness of the world, a love of music and the concentration so needed for further development.

Recent research illustrates that the most important time for development is the first year of life.

Language development - many parents experience intense frustration in understanding their baby’s signals. Sign Language is one way of taking the guesswork out of parenting.

Physical development - although babies should always sleep on their backs, tummy time is an essential aspect of development from birth. Babies need to be on their tummies in order to go through the fundamental movement patterns that stimulate both sides of the brain.

Social development - happy social play sets the tone for the acquisition of future skills such as cooperation, turn taking and sharing.

Emotional Development - massage is one sensory delight that really strengthens the bond because it provides an opportunity for parents to express their love.
