Description

BABY SENSORY

The Baby Sensory programme has been specifically designed to support the early development of babies through exposure to sensory experiences. Babies learn more in the first year of life than at any other time. Never again will there be such an extraordinary pace of development. They are totally attentive and absolutely fascinated by everything that they can see, hear, touch, taste and smell. Baby Sensory doesn’t waste a moment of this valuable time!

Our award winning Baby Sensory classes provide a myriad of colourful sensory experiences and new sensations. Activities vary weekly and incorporate every possible sensory experience including sign language, fibre optic light shows, amazing bouncy light balls, rainbows, bubbles, bells, holistic massage and much more. Imagine taking your baby on a jungle, water or space adventure, to a winter wonderland or to a world of light and magic? Mums and Dads also find out how to settle and soothe their baby, how to get them on their tummies, how to perform simple massage techniques and a whole lot more. 

Parents are provided with hundreds of simple ideas for activities that they can do with their babies at home. Baby signing for example, is a great way to develop speech and language, whereas movement activities can help with the development of sight and hand-eye co-ordination, so important for later reading and writing.

The joy and sense of awe from seeing your baby learn, communicate and develop is worth the effort of squeezing this class into your schedule. Plus, you get the chance to meet others parents with young babies and form friendships which can play a useful role in helping you adapt to parenthood.

TODDLER SENSE

Toddler Sense classes provide a fantastic opportunity for learning through play experiences which will capture your toddler’s imagination. The main emphasis is on mobility, excitement and adventure. The classes include great music, gym equipment, bouncy castles, games and new ideas! Imagine climbing a snow mountain, going on safari, digging for fossils, swimming with dolphins and hunting for dinosaurs…every week introduces new activities and a whole new adventure.

The Toddler Sense session starts in our exploratory play area which is set out differently each week. Children enjoy scrambling over obstacles, balancing on steps and blocks, crawling through tunnels and climbing over the trestles and ramps. They also enjoy putting the equipment away after play.

Each session is different and the equipment for the session has been specifically selected to match the theme. What may look like a balance beam to you will be transformed into a bridge that crosses a crocodile swamp and the following week into a plank for your young pirate to walk across. We start each session by introducing the theme and then suggest ways in which you can bring this part of the session to life for your toddler. 

Adventure play is followed by structured, themed activities, which provide a wealth of ideas that can be continued at home. Expect things like creative dance, parachutes, pom-poms, coloured ribbons and more.

Toddler Sense introduces children to a whole new world of adventure and challenge that will lead learning and development forwards, and motivate children to try out new skills.

Whilst packed with fun, the underlying educational value of the programme is that every session and every single activity within, has been designed by Dr Lin Day to enhance learning and development in the following areas.

  • Social Skills (turn-taking, cooperation, friendships)
  • Communication Skills (singing, action rhymes, talking, musical expression)
  • Physical Skills (balance, coordination, control, manipulation)
  • Knowledge Acquisition (knowledge and understanding of the world)
  • Emotional Development (self-esteem, confidence, independence, trust)
  • Creativity (imagination, drawing, rhythmic speaking, music-making)
  • Mathematical Skills (counting, problem-solving, sequencing, building)

BABY SENSORY - age & pricing

Our Baby Sensory classes are designed for babies from birth to 13 months only. Older children (including siblings) are unfortunately unable to attend Baby Sensory classes for health and safety reasons.

Class ages are for guidance only as every baby / child develops differently.  Please don't worry if your child will be slightly over the class age when the term ends, as long as they are well within the age range at the start.

For a full term the price is £6 per session  X number of weeks in the term, which is usually 10-13 weeks. So £6 x 10 weeks = £60.  

Bookings for less than 10 weeks are £7 per session.

For TWINS the second child is half the full price - when booking please select the twin product option and select 2 children to get the correct pricing.

TODDLER SENSE - age & pricing

Class ages are set by the age of your oldest child - younger siblings are accepted on older classes if you are happy that they will be mixing with older children. Children are often a month or two over the age band by the end of a block – as long as they are within the age band at the start of the block that’s fine.

Toddler Sense classes are designed for children from 12 months to 4 years 11 months. Siblings under 12 months can come along and won't be charged for. Siblings over 12 months are half the full price.

For a full term the price is £6 per session  X number of weeks in the term, which is usually around 10-13 weeks. So £6 x 10 weeks = £60.  

For less than 10 sessions the price is £7 per session.

On Toddler Sense siblings / twins are charged at half the full price, so £3 per session for term bookings and £3.50 for half term bookings. Please make sure you select the twin / sibling option and select 2 children to apply the correct pricing. Children under 12 months are free (please don't add them or the system will try to charge you!).

The cost for annual pass holders is £5 per session for term bookings and £6 per session for half term bookings. Please select the annual pass option when booking.

REFUNDS & CANCELLATION OF CLASSES
Bookings are non-refundable and non-transferable. We are are under no obligation to refund a booking in the event that you are unable to attend or wish to cancel a single session or the entire term. Regretfully we are unable to carry missed sessions over to the new term.

If you have a prior hospital or doctors appointment and are unable to make your usual session we may be able to fit you into another class at Little Stars that week or the following week. Please contact us to see if this is possible.

If your class leader is unable to run your class because of illness etc we will try and substitute an alternative class leader. If this isn't possible you will be notified of cancellation by email, text or phone call. We will endeavour to run a 'catch up' class at the end of the term to replace your session. If this isn't possible you will receive a full refund. 

In certain exceptional circumstances we may be prevented from running classes due to situations beyond their control. These may include floods or treacherous driving conditions (snow or ice) which would pose a risk to our class leaders and parents if they ventured onto the roads. On these occasions we will endeavour to offer a 'catch up' class at the end of the term but if this wasn't possible we reserve the right not to refund due to the exceptional nature of the circumstances.
