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.

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.
