Baby Sensory

Baby Sensory


Baby Sensory was the first (and original) baby programme to offer a complete approach to learning and sensory development from birth to 13 months. Designed to stimulate, educate and provide precious memories during the all-important first year of life, Baby Sensory has won multiple awards both nationally and internationally since 2008.

Baby Sensory, Toddler Sense and Baby Sensory Foundations founder, Dr. Lin Day (PhD., M. Phil., PGCE., FETC., BSc., Dip Ed.) is one of the UK's leading parenting experts. We're proud to say that Baby Sensory is backed by over 35 years of research in childhood learning and development. That's why we always explain what we're doing so you can make your baby's first year a truly precious time of learning and sensory exploration.

What makes Baby Sensory unique is that every activity has been carefully designed to stimulate your baby's senses and move development and learning forwards. And behind every Baby Sensory session, there's an incredibly detailed lesson plan backing up everything your baby touches, sees, hears, smells and feels!

"I loved running Baby Sensory classes - seeing the babies learn and develop and my parents having so much fun. I believe that early education gives babies the very best chance in life: a head start that makes a real difference to future learning." Dr. Lin Day.

What do we do?

Baby Sensory provides ideas for creative play, massage, tummy time, movement, and music in simple practical ways that can be easily repeated at home. We also use a combination of original and traditional songs and rhymes to develop early speech and language skills, and sensory signing activities to help you and your baby communicate from birth. 

In our themed weeks, you and your baby will swirl through snow, laugh at the jungle jitters, explore a watery world undersea, join us on an animal adventure, watch the little ducks float by on their tummies, and marvel at the magic we have created! Every week is different and introduces new sensory development activities supported by useful information to help you interact with your baby and discover what he or she can do. There's always something new and exciting to look forward to! You'll always remember the moment your baby produces the very first 'Say Hello to the Sun' sign - our unique signature song played at the start of every session.

"We love 'Say Hello to the Sun'. I sing it to my baby at home and he settles whenever he hears it!" Imogen Coleman.
