A new six-week programme of sensory for babies classes starts in High Rise Lisburn on Friday 2 June. Sensory for babies at High Rise will be delivered by the centre’s Sensory Assistant and we have designed a stimulating and fun programme of classes to support babies’ sensory development. Babies, along with a parent, will explore a new theme each week, including:
The classes will be held in one of High Rise’s specialist multi-sensory rooms, and will make use of the state of the art sensory equipment within the room, such as the bubble tube, projector and lighting – as well as a range of sensory toys.
There are six spaces available in the sensory for babies class at High Rise, which will be held on a Friday morning from 9.45am-11am. This will include some free time to explore the sensory room after the class activities, and a cup of tea or coffee will be provided.
The classes are suitable for babies from around six weeks old up 12 months (approximately).
Bookings can be made online here. The previous class sold out so be quick!
Guests who attended the classes previously really enjoyed the experience, telling us:
“We attended our first sensory for babies class today at High Rise. We have gone to a number of different baby classes and this has been our favourite so far. Julie is a credit to High Rise, she had a well thought out session planned for us and interacted well with all the babies. The tea and coffee at the end is a lovely touch to get chatting with other new parents!
“My baby loved this. Thank you and looking forward to next week”.
“Nice size of class. Friendly – everyone was kind and lovely. My baby enjoyed it. Would definitely come back again.”
“Loved the class. Enjoyed all the different themes and props. Highly recommend.”
“Amazing classes in sensory room Such creative, fun ideas and brilliant class leader. Loved ordering a coffee before going in and knowing we can sit and chat after while feeding – great idea!”
