I can thoroughly recommend Baby Sensory classes with Amy. I already knew my baby girl would love the classes after attending with my son 4 years ago and I eagerly awaited for Friday afternoon each week to see the delight on her face as she was swept away in an hour of sensory activities.
When we started the term little Lucy struggled to sit up for longer than a few seconds and by the last class at Christmas she was dashing around and I loved watching her chasing the balloons and bubbles. Little Lucy clearly loves singing (sorry honey, Mum’s voice not so good) and she would sit and stare at Amy whenever she sang and signed the words.
The structure of the class is very simple, each week there is a different theme with a few sensory activities followed by a short play time and then back to the mat for more activities. Amy Moody is fantastic at delighting and engaging the babies and during our term Lucy was encouraged to smell different dried vegetables (although she kept trying to eat them), touch and feel various items in a box, watch flashing lights dancing around and there was even a puppet nativity play which she sat right in front of the whole way through.
Our favourite activity was always the one’s where we’d be given some bells or an instrument to play while Amy would put down a big bright colourful sheets to bounce balloons on or she’d hide an exciting surprise for the babies to discover underneath while bubbles floated around.
Play time was just as important as the activities for us. It gave Lucy the chance to jump straight in the ball pit (she now has one at home thanks to Father Christmas) and it gave me the chance to chat to some of the Mums which is always nice when you haven’t had a conversation all day.
Our most favourite class had to be the Christmas special. Little Lucy and all of the other babies got dressed up and we enjoyed a magical singing sleigh ride and lots of bouncing snowman balloons!
Good to know………
Amy currently runs classes at St Mary’s Longfleet Church in Poole and the Community Learning and Resource Centre in Wimborne.
Sometimes taster sessions are available so it’s worth enquiring if you would like to attend and see for yourself how much fun the babies have before committing to a term.
Classes are for babies from birth to 6 months and 7 to 13 months.
