Baby Sensory’s award winning baby development classes are now running in your area. You and your baby will experience different sensory activities designed to support your baby’s sensory development every week and you are welcome to join at any time. Baby Sensory is an extremely popular Baby Development activity and many of our classes are fully booked, it is advisable to book early.

Visitors are always welcome but please call in advance to reserve your place.

To register your interest, please contact your local Baby Sensory Class Leader.




The Award Winning Baby Development classes are held weekly in Bedford and the surrounding areas.
Class locations are Bedford, Milton Ernest, St. Neots, Biddenham, Old Warden, Houghton Conquest, Blunham and run weekly - see the timetable for details.

These locations are easily accessible and have plenty of free parking. If you are looking for an exciting activity which will be fun for you and will help with your baby’s sensory development - then this is the class you have been looking for.

Babies have an extraordinary capacity to absorb information during their precious first year and at Baby Sensory we don't waste a single moment.

Our multi-sensory activities will stimulate your baby in every way, crucial for your baby's development in these precious early stages. Even the activities that seem very simple have all been scientifically tested and proven to aid development - I will explain before each activity the reason why we are doing it and which part of learning it aids and progresses 

Our classes are designed for babies from birth to 13 months. Activities include music, movement, baby signing, massage, baby music, light shows, themed sessions, water play, messy play, puppet shows, bubbles and literally hundreds of props!

Often the simplest of activities provide a surprising amount of stimulation and learning - but every activity we do is backed by scientific research and is proven to aid your babies learning and development enormously   'Like' us on Facebook for updates and special events:
