Hi, my name is Nicola, I’ve been been married to Martin for 13 years, and have two gorgeous children, aged 12 and 10. Before having children I worked for a bank for over 10 years, in many different training and development roles, which all involved working with people, something I absolutely love.
Becoming a mummy has been a totally life changing experience for me! In recent years I’ve taken time out to be with my children; during this time I’ve had a very active role in my local NCT branch, and I’ve spent 3 years training as an NCT Postnatal Leader, as well as running a local baby and toddler group, and a organising a host of family events, providing parents with the opportunity to have fun, socialise and build friendships. It was during one of these events that I first observed a Baby Sensory class, and it totally blew me away - I knew from that moment, that this was something that I wanted to be part of!
Baby Sensory is a totally unique baby development programme, which includes literally hundreds of sensory development activities for you and your baby to share and enjoy in their very precious first year. Babies absorb so much, and it is wonderful to have sessions that stimulate and develop in such a fun way. Every week is different, offering a whole variety of imaginative and enchanting sensory activities, as well as providing parents with lots of play ideas for home too. So many mums and dads say that our lively and upbeat classes are a real highlight in their week, as they are mine!
It makes me so happy to see parents sharing such special times with their babies, and I am thrilled to be running such captivating and brilliantly designed classes. I feel inspired by Dr Lin Day and the rest of the Baby Sensory team and I can't wait to share my enthusiasm for these incredibly worthwhile classes with you and your baby. I hope to make each session a delight for everyone involved; so please come along with your precious little ones and join in the fun; I look forward to meeting you.
Don’t hesitate to get in touch by phone or email if you would like any more information, or if you have any questions.

Why Baby Sensory classes are fantastic for you and your baby:
An explosion of learning occurs from the moment of birth;
· Babies learn more in their 1st year than at any other time in their lives;
· We offer age specific classes, ensuring the content of each class is tailored to your baby’s needs and developmental stage;
· You’ll be in a group with parents with similar aged babies – it’s a wonderful journey to share, as your babies grow in ability week-by-week and a great way to make new friends and gain support too!
· We deliver new activities every week and heaps of ideas that you can use at home too, including musical fun, baby signing, light shows, creative texture experiences, massage and touch techniques and so much more!
Baby Sensory classes run for one hour; this includes 25 minutes of structured sensory activities led by your Class Leader, followed by 15-20 minutes of developmental free-play in our wonderful exploratory play area. This is a perfect time to socialise and make friends with other parents and babies too! The class is then completed by a further 15-20 minutes of group sensory experiences. Our unique class routine follows your baby's natural play, rest, play cycle. Giving them a rest-break from the structured activities provides the opportunity for babies to take a rest, and play at their own pace in our exciting exploratory play area.
Your baby is at the very heart of our classes - you should always put their needs first and feel free to feed, change and cuddle whenever needed!!
Every class is packed with a fantastic variety of activities to stimulate your baby's senses and encourage precious early learning.
What activities can I expect?
Our classes include musical fun, dance and movement, baby signing, puppet shows, touch techniques and exercise, light shows, imaginative texture experiences, creative ideas for play at home and much more!
Next term we'll be taking the babies on a 'Space Adventure', enjoying a 'Teddy Bear's Picnic', experiencing a week of 'Rock and Roll' fun, splashing around in 'Water Play' week and having an amazing time at 'Baby's 1st Sports Day'. We also have a fabulous fundraising week in aid of the wonderful baby charity Tommy's to look forward to! Each week has new sensory experiences for you and your baby to enjoy. Every activity is explained so you can gain heaps of ideas for play at home and maximise your little one's amazing learning ability.
Which class is right for my baby?
The age groups for our classes are based on the age of your baby at the start of a term. For example, for our 0-6 month classes, please don’t worry if your baby will be over 6 months when the term ends. Babies will often be around 8 months before they ‘graduate’ to one of our older baby classes!
If your baby is the appropriate age to join more than one class time, please choose the best time of day for you, bearing in mind that older baby classes naturally include busier, more mobile babies!
