What happens in a Baby Sensory class?
Baby Sensory provides ideas for creative play, massage, tummy time, movement, visual development, textures, scents and music in simple practical ways that can be easily repeated at home. We also use a combination of original and traditional songs and rhymes to develop early speech and language skills, and sensory signing activities to help you and your baby communicate from birth.
At the moment, classes are 45mins. long and consist of 3 distinct sessions, sensory, play break & sensory. This works in line with your baby's natural play-rest-play cycle.
How much do the classes cost? Can I pay ad hoc?
Classes are booked in termly blocks, and are pro-rated depending on the week you start. The sessions are £9 per class. We are currently not taking drop-ins or PAYG spaces due to our Covid-19 class policies.
Is my baby too young? What age can we start attending?
Baby Sensory classes are suitable from birth. All babies can benefit from early sensory stimulation and each activity has been researched and developed to be appropriate for newborns through to 13 months.
Do I need to bring anything to the sessions?
You don’t need to bring anything specific to the sessions except socks and possibly a blanket. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, our classes might look a little different. For now we are running Sensory only sessions. We provide all the props and equipment and these are cleaned between sessions.
What if I can’t make a session?
As per our terms and conditions, credits cannot be made for missed sessions.
Do you offer trials?
Due to Covid-19 restrictions we are not allowing trials in our classes.
Is there parking?
Richmond – there is metered parking around the adjacent roads. Please note you cannot park in the church grounds, this is private parking only.
Wandsworth – there is metered parking in Santos Road, and surrounding roads.
Can I bring my older child?
Unfortunately, due to health and safety and our insurance. Siblings aged 14 months to 5 years are unable to attend Baby Sensory sessions.
What if my baby sleeps?
When your baby sleeps, they still take in passively 60% of their surroundings. They can still hear the music, feel the textures and enjoy the smells around them. So even if you baby is asleep they are still benefiting from our Baby Sensory sessions.
I have twins, can I still attend?
Twins are more than welcome to attend our Baby Sensory sessions. We offer a 50% discount on the second child. You are also welcome to bring an additional adult to help you, if you need it. However is it not possible for our class leaders to be the extra adult during the session. Due to limited numbers, if you are bringing another adult with your children they will need to pay for a full extra space. If you are bringing the children with one adult there is a 50% discount for the second child.
Can I bring someone with me to the class?
As much as we love having visitors in the class, due to limitations on numbers, we are operating a 1 parent & 1 child policy. We hope that we will be able to lift this soon and we will update where we can.
