The wonderful world of senses are oodles of discoveries for babies, so a Sutherland Shire class is giving the little ones an arena to explore their surroundings together.
Baby Sensory one-hourly classes are held at Como, Engadine and Caringbah, and are designed for babies aged from birth to 13 months.
They are designed by experts in child development, and include massage, sign language, musical instruments, balloons, parachutes, feathers, ribbons, bubbles, pom poms, and puppet and light shows.
There are different themes each week – rock and roll, space adventure, reflections, surprises, water and messy play, among others.
Owner and operator of Baby Sensory, Emma Dudman, studied primary education, and is a mother of two.
“The first year of a baby's life is vital for the development of all the senses,” she said.
“A baby's brain doubles in weight during their first year and it never grows that fast again. This means their first year is perfect for introducing a huge range of different smells, sounds, sights, textures and even safe objects to taste.
“We also give lots of knowledge around different stages of baby development, ways to play with babies at home and which games/songs they like at different ages.”
