Sensory Classes for Newborns & Infants

Baby Sensory provides stimulation their minds to process, bodies to interact and development to occur.

Sensory experiences are those where baby can discover the world around them utilizing their senses. It provides baby with interactions to stimulate their minds to process,  bodies to interact and magic to happen.

Providing these interactions in environments that support exploration and discovery, baby’s become stimulated and they develop on physical, cognitive and social levels.  Studies show that early sensory stimulation develops the way their minds process and learn, which is the framework for future cognitive maturity.

Sensory Program

Beginning your child in a social sensory program or by doing simple exercises at home, you are setting your child up for greater learning capacity, memory retention and flexibility of mind.

Types of programs: As a mother, you are your child’s first teacher and sensory experiences are all around.  You can make your own program just by interacting with your child in a variety of ways! A program held at a school, or local business, provides a class setting in which to develop relationships for yourself and your little one, where they also learn how to interact on a social scale.    Both are recommended!
