Hi, I'm Mel and I joined the Baby Sensory team in 2020! Why Baby Sensory? My Baby Sensory journey began when I attended a trial class at the start of 2019 and fell in love with the program. I cherished spending each session with my baby girl, creating life long memories, learning activities and songs to take home and socialising with other parents and grandparents. I was amazed how calming the music and environment was in each class and I quickly started singing and signing the “Say Hello to the Sun” song to Anastasia as often as possible - it seemed to be magic! My daughter “graduated” from Baby Sensory at the end of 2019.
Now, I’m a fully trained Class Leader and running Baby Sensory classes for families in the Inner West of Melbourne. The program is unique, unlike any other and different every week. You can attend a whole year of classes and never experience the same session twice! Every activity is based on extensive research by Dr Lin Day and designed to promote connections within the brain that help support future physical, social, emotional and intellectual learning.
I am a qualified teacher with many years experience working in both primary and secondary independent and government schools in Melbourne. I have also worked as an educational consultant assisting teacher development throughout Victoria as well as a text book author and lecturer. I am passionate about learning and the continually growing body of research about brain development. I completed an extensive Wilderness First Aid training course in 2017 and have updated my first aid and CPR qualifications again at the end of 2020.
I am looking forward to helping more families discover the joy of Baby Sensory. Don’t hesitate to contact me via email, text, phone, Facebook or Instagram with any queries.
