Babies learn more in the first year of life than at any other time. Never again will there be such an extraordinary pace of development.  They are totally attentive and absolutely fascinated by everything that they can see, hear, touch, taste and smell.  Baby Sensory provides hundreds of sensory development activities that are great fun for parents and babies to share in the vital first year.  The Baby Sensory Programme consists of over 40 themed lessons plans, so every week you will share new sensory experiences with your baby including fibre optic light shows, bubbles, bells, musical fun, baby signing, puppet shows, amazing light balls and so much more.  Our Baby Sensory Programme has been designed specifically for babies from birth based on current research into baby's devolpment. Each activity is supported by the provision of developmental information, so that parents can discover how to lead their baby's learning forwards, both within the class and at the home.

Class cost £7 and are booked in blocks and paid in full at time of booking.
