“I absolutely love these classes. I've been taking my LG to Ciara's Newbridge class since she was 3 months old and they have been a brilliant experience for her. I was devasted to lose them following the Covid restrictions but Ciara has gone above and beyond to create fantastic online classes every week. My LG gets so excited to see Ciara on the telly every week. We have a great time with all of activities and Ciara gives us brilliant ideas to help keep the little ones entertained at home. I love that everything she uses is stuff you have at home and she gives great guides on how to make things out of basic kitchen bits and bobs. I couldn't recommend her classes enough.” ~ Kim
Baby Sensory was the first (and original) baby programme to offer a complete approach to learning and sensory development from birth to 13 months. Designed to stimulate, educate and provide precious memories during the all-important first year of life. Baby Sensory is the only Baby Development programme with classes specifically designed for babies from birth.
We're proud to say that Baby Sensory is backed by over 40 years of research in childhood learning and development. That's why we always explain what we're doing so you can make your baby's first year a truly precious time of learning and sensory exploration.
What makes Baby Sensory unique is that every activity has been carefully designed to stimulate your baby's senses and move development and learning forwards. And behind every Baby Sensory session, there's an incredibly detailed lesson plan backing up everything your baby touches, sees, hears, smells and feels!
Baby Sensory provides ideas for creative play, massage, tummy time, movement, and music in simple practical ways that can be easily repeated at home. We also use a combination of original and traditional songs and rhymes to develop early speech and language skills, and sensory signing activities to help you and your baby communicate from birth.
In our themed weeks, you and your baby will swirl through snow, laugh at the jungle jitters, explore a watery world undersea, join us on an animal adventure, watch the little ducks float by on their tummies, and marvel at the magic we have created together!
Every week is different and introduces new sensory development activities supported by useful information to help you interact with your baby and discover what he or she can do. There's always something new and exciting to look forward to!
The most miraculous advances in your baby's brain structure occur in the first 3 months of life. During this period, an astonishing 2 million new brain cell connections are created every second. By the end of the first year, your baby's brain will have doubled in volume as a direct result of sensory learning from birth!
"A sensory environment rich in sights, sounds, smells and textures promotes brain growth, increases the capacity for intellectual development and forms the foundation for all future learning." Dr. Lin Day.
All you need to do is sign up! We've done the research so that you and your baby can spend time focusing on each other and having huge amounts of fun!
Baby Sensory classes are the proud winners of Best Baby Class in the Mums & Tots Awards 2019 & 2020.
“I started Baby Sensory with Sophie, as a first time mum, to get some ideas of activities to do with her. Ciara is amazing at what she does and puts great care into her lessons. She not only designs a broad range of entertaining activities but she underpins these with her extensive knowledge of baby's development, which she explains in simple terms. Doing classes on Zoom now means that myself and Sophie can enjoy fun songs and games within our own home. Before the current situation, Sophie and I had started Baby Sensory, going once a week. Ciara has been so kind and mindful of these uncertain times and has extended classes to twice a week, giving two days of nice, structured, developmentally-appropriate play. Getting two hours of bubbles, songs, baby laughs and excellent puppet shows, amongst other things, gives myself and more importantly, Sophie, something wonderful to look forward to every week.” ~ Ruth
