FAQ's about Baby Sensory:
Is my baby too young?
It is never too early to introduce your little ones to a variety of sensory experiences.
Babies have begun learning from inside the womb already and as they come into this world they hit the ground running!
A newborn’s brain contains more than 100 billion brain cells (neurons). Some of these neurons were wired in the prenatal period for specific functions such as breathing and heartbeat. However, the majority of synaptic connections for vision, language, hearing, smell, taste, movement and learning will be formed in the first three months of life.
Stimulation from birth increases neural growth and whilst we certainly do this in our classes, it is also important to mention that touching, talking, singing, reading, smiling, signing and playing with babies from birth, nourishes the brain and develops potential for a lifetime.
Our classes provide a rich environment full of interesting sights, sounds, smells, taste, colours, textures and language, which builds a foundation that will make all subsequent learning easier.

What do we do in class and why have an Exploratory Play?
The structure of the class is divided into 3 parts and reason behind this is because your baby has a natural play-rest-play cycle, which lasts about an hour.
The first 25 minutes we “Say Hello to the Sun” followed by a number of stimulating activities varying from; puppet shows, baby massage, traditional rhyming and visual activities to sing and sign, texture exploring, messy play and making music (to name but a few!)
We then break for 15 minutes, where the babies can rest and explore the Exploratory Play under their own steam or Free-Flow Play.
During the Exploratory Play there are no set rules or guidelines. Your baby decides what toys interest him/her the most, how he/she explores them and how long the play will last. Free-flow play enables your baby to entertain himself/herself for short periods, which will become a beneficial life habit.
The Exploratory Play also provides a social setting for the parents. Here you can meet new Mum’s, try out equipment and materials, gain ideas for home use and spend quality time with your baby.
We then head back to the Sensory Area for the remaining 20 minutes for more stimulating activities before “Waving Goodbye”

"Baby Sensory is excellent! And we love Jo who runs the Crawley one. We have been coming since my son was 9 days old and have loved every minute! I have also just booked a baby sensory birthday party with Jo for his first birthday -can't recommend highly enough. Been to lots of other classes but this is the only one where I have bothered to book every week. It's really fun and interactive. Each week has has a different theme and there is a bit of everything (songs, dancing, baby signing, baby massage, puppet shows, and of course LOADS of sensory stuff like lights and sounds etc ) but not too repetitive. The class runs smoothly and is well organised with no awkward hanging around. There is a short free-play time in the middle which is good for meeting other parents (and trying out lots of toys before buying them!) Overall a very well executed class and if I am fortunate enough to be blessed with more children I will definitely be coming back again!"
"I can't recommend this class with Jo enough. My daughter and I have had such a lovely experience attending these classes. The activities are brilliant and have also given me ideas for things to do at home. The effort and enthusiasm that Jo gives at every class is amazing! Jo has certainly given my daughter and I some lovely memories!"
"We LOVE baby sensory. Jo delivers every class with energy and enthusiasm. There's something extraordinarily exciting every week and my little one is just thriving as a result of the fun filled sessions - I'd recommend baby sensory to everyone!"
