What is Baby Sensory @Home?
Baby Sensory is a multi-award-winning baby development programme designed for babies from birth to 13 months. Our programmes are themed and we change our themes weekly so that every week is different. We hold Gold accreditation with the Children's Activities Association which gives parent's peace of mind regarding set standards and code of practice. Our programme is written by Dr Lin Day a leading child development specialist who has developed the programme extensively over the last 15 years based on latest scientific research. For every activity we provide, we provide developmental information so that you can learn not only how it will benefit your baby but also how you can recreate many activities at home. Research carried out by Manchester University and Leeds University have showed significant benefit to attending Baby Sensory and, in some studies babies,, who attended Baby Sensory were able to complete more activities than those that had not. Julie Flook have been training and teaching Baby Sensory over 10 year, training and teaching Hello Baby 3 C's and Massage & Sensory for 4 yrs (newborn babies behavior, massage and sensory development) and training and teaching Mini Professors (2-8yrs interactive Science programme) for 3 years.

If you are unable to do this then write in chat on zoom, parent’s, and baby's first name. Example Julie and Baby Oliver. Everyone will be on mute upon arriving to @Home class. Julie will un-mute everyone during the play time, you may mute yourself if you wish during play time.
