Due to current COVID restrictions in Staffordshire, Stafford Baby Sensory classes are suspended until at least 20 April, when I plan to return to running classes in my venue.
In the meantime please consider joining the "Register Interest Venue Class" waiting lists to receive email notice of the next booking opportunity. Please ignore that is is for a Monday it's just a way of letting me know that you wish to be informed once all my usual classes are up and running again.
Baby Sensory is still available online via the Zoom app. These classes are on Mondays at 9.30am or Thursdays at 11.30am. Book on to your preferred class but you are welcome to attend either sessions or both if you wish, whilst we are in lockdown. You will also receive a recording of the session each week. The classes cost £28 for 7 weeks. This is pro-rataed as the half term progresses.
Please scroll down to book on.

Symptoms. Obviously, please do not attend class if you or your baby have any COVID symptoms, you’ve been in contact with someone with COVID or have tested positive for COVID.
Arrival. Please aim to arrive just before your class starts. If you are early kindly wait outside (be aware that it is a busy car park and vehicles do drive past my door) or in your car. I will invite you into the building and supervise your entry to make sure we maintain social distancing. Please do not enter unless I invite you to.
Hand sanitising. There is a wall mounted hand sanitising unit at the entrance; would you please sanitise your hands on entry. There are additional hand sanitising stations around the room and in the toilets.
Face Coverings. Please wear a suitable face covering at all times in class. I will be wearing a face mask and visor during the class.
Class layout. I have significantly reduced class numbers down to 11 and all individual mats are laid out a minimum of 2 metres apart; please do not move them. I will not be using blankets during class so please bring your own fleece/blanket for your baby to lie on in class, if you wish. There is space by your mat for your baby's car seat / changing bag etc. Please remove your shoes in the entrance before moving to your mat. You should leave your shoes in the entrance area.
Exploratory play area. For the time being there will be no exploratory play area, firstly to minimise the risk of infection but also to give me the space to allow for social distancing.
Class routine. We will still be able to enjoy lights, music, instruments, bubbles and many visual sensory activities etc.
Play break. Classes will follow baby's natural play-rest-play cycle and will be 45 minutes in length. Although there will no exploratory play area/soft furnishings etc, we will have a short break in the middle of class. The break will still give you the opportunity to socialise from where you are sat with other parents, feeding or changing baby. You may wish to bring a small selection of baby's own toys or a favourite toy for this short break.
Nappy changing. Unfortunately, my nappy changing facilities are not available while restrictions are in place. Therefore, would you please bring your own nappy change items and mat and take soiled nappies home with you.
Track and trace. I will need you to give permission for me to pass on your information to the NHS test and trace central database in the event of need. By booking you give permission for me to pass on your name, telephone number and email address to the NHS Test/ Track/ Trace Service.
QR Code. My venue is registered with NHS Covid app so please scan the QR code when you arrive.
Missed classes. I will not be able to refund for missed classes, however, I will be proving a recorded class each week for all attendees to stream as often as they like that week. Unfortunately, I am unable to let you offer any missed classes to your friends to attend in your place. This is due to me needing to strictly control attendance.
Extra attendees. Whilst classes numbers are significantly restricted, unfortunately, only one adult is able to attend with baby or twins. I have always just charged for one baby for twins, which I will continue to do so if only one adult attends. However, during the restrictions, if 2 adults were to attend with twins they would need to be booked on separately and pay for 2 babies as they would be taking 2 places.
Siblings. Apologies due to company policy and insurance I am not able to accommodate siblings.
Departure. At the end of the class, please wait on your mat and I will supervise the departure. This is to ensure we maintain social distancing in the entrance area.
Cleaning. I have adjusted my usual class timings to allow one hour for a full clean in between classes. This includes cleaning all toys, equipment and class props; the complete floor and mats, all surfaces and toilets.
Future lockdown. If at any point in the future we were forced into either a local or national lockdown I will immediately revert classes to an online class to see your term through and no refunds will be offered.
Zoom Class & Recording. I will continue to offer an on-line Zoom class only, booking option for those who do not wish to attend actual classes. This will be half the regular price, £24 for the half term and will be a single class on Monday morning at 9.30pm.
Those that are attending my venue classes are also welcome join the online class as well, if they wish, at no extra cost. This is great for those who want to continue to share the moments with grandparents.
I will also continue to provide a weekly recorded Zoom class for all attendees (Zoom & Venue) to stream as must as you like; again at no extra cost .
If you have any questions please feel free to call me.
