Baby Sensory – weekly classes in Arkholme, Lancaster, Morecambe and Garstang
Baby Sensory is a magical world filled with light shows, music, bubbles, bells, songs, rainbows, puppets and tickly feathers.  Our multi award winning, carefully structured sessions provide ideas for play, exercise, massage and communication techniques taught in simple practical ways that can be easily repeated at home.
Every activity is carefully designed with your baby’s development in mind, based on years of educational and scientific research, and we love sharing this information with you – explaining what we are doing and why, as we know that giving you this knowledge is one of the best ways of enhancing your baby’s precious first years of life.
Over the weeks’ you’ll learn how music will help your baby’s maths, the importance of tummy time, how sight develops and much more.  You’re welcome to join us whenever you want – but we’d suggest the earlier the better.  Soon after birth your baby’s brain creates an astonishing two million new connections every second and is incredibly receptive to different sensations!
Our classes are a very social event where strong friendships are soon formed.  If you’re sitting next to a parent whose baby is just 2 days younger than yours, you’ll probably find you’ve got a lot in common.

sing and sign logo
Sing and sign is a fantastic innovative way for parents and carers to begin communication with their babies from 23 weeks old , parents/carers will learn a variety of signs that revolve around daily life. 100 signs will be demonstrated over a 10 week block at stage 1, signs will be taught through fun songs and nursery rhymes as well as meeting my friend Jessie the cat and using puppets and props.

Between 6 months and 9 months old babies begin to use a combination of gestures and sounds in an attempt to make themselves understood, e.g babies will shake their heads to mean no. Introducing signing at this stage helps to extend babies naturally developing skills. Sing and sign is a fun ,easy way for pre-verbal babies to initiate communication and helps to minimise frustration for them.

About me
I'm a step mum and have been a professional nanny for 30 years and I started taking children to sing and sign classes 3 years ago , I appreciated the concept from day one, the little girl I was looking after quickly picked up the signs (consistent use at home is vital), this let her communicate us and alleviatied her frustrations, her sign to say finished or all gone was awesome so dramatically wonderful!  I'm so excited to offer this class in my home town and the surrounding district and look forward to meeting you next year. Classes take place in Lancaster, Morecambe and Heysham.

Sling Swing
- weekly classes in Lancaster
Sling Swing is a fun and funky dancing and gentle movement classes for mums and dads with their little ones in slings and baby carriers.  It's kind of like a gentle zumba class that you're doing with your baby, and is full of giggles, precious moments, sleepy cuddles, fascination and great bonding moments. 
Benefits for parent: spend quality time bonding with your baby; build intimacy and trust with your baby; have fun; improves your mood and increases energy levels; improves your posture and self-awareness; helps you feel confident; get active whilst you have your baby with you.
Benefits for baby/infant: builds intimacy and trust with parent; introduces music, movement and dance; defelops musical appreciation and a good sense of rhythm; stimulates your baby's mind; your baby will love watching the others around them.
Don't be put off if you've never used a sling before - I bring slings for you to borrow in class and can fit one to you and your baby safely and comfortably.  All moves are suitable pre- and post-natally.  Babies must be at least 6 weeks old (or 12 weeks if you had a c-section). 2 left feet are welcome - come and join the fun.
