Sensory Play Classes

Happy Babies: Baby Classes, for little ones aged 0 to 15 months, that Nurture Both Baby Development and Parental Well-Being.

Nurturing connections with your little one while fostering relationships with fellow parents and caregivers - creating a community to support and grow with you.

Our Story
Happy Babies has been developed by two passionate teachers, Laura and Sophie, who want to make a difference in the world of early education! Each baby's brain develops rapidly in the first year of life, with millions of new neural connections being made every second! Our Sensory Play classes are here to increase opportunies for those connections to be made from 0 to 15 months.

At Happy Babies, we understand how important it is for parents to have the right support during the early stages of their baby's life, and know that creating a safe place for parents will have such a positive impact on the community. This aspect of our sessions is vital, not only for the parents but also for their babies. Babies learn social interaction directly from watching their parents, so this exposure can help your baby to build social connections with others and learn how to express themselves.

As parents ourselves, we have attended a variety of baby classes and often found ourselves torn between a structured class solely for baby's development, or a more open-ended play session to make new 'mum friends'. This is why we have launched Happy Babies: baby classes that offer both!

Engaging, Teacher-Led Sensory Play Classes

Sensory Play is a fun and engaging way to promote creativity, sensory exploration, and connections between babies and their parents. Our classes, led by fully qualified teachers, aim to not only further each baby's development but also to enhance parents' knowledge. Having experienced and skilled leaders means that our classes are differentiated and adapted in the moment to fulfil your baby's interests. Our Sensory Play programme offers weekly themed sessions providing babies with a variety of experiences to explore the world around them. Each class takes your baby through a sensory story adventure, creating moments of awe and wonder throughout!

Social Play Zone

Socialising is a crucial part of each baby's overall development, and those who are exposed to these situations at a young age, are more likely to create strong, emotional connections with others. Socialising in the Happy Babies play zone with other babies, parents and caregivers can enable babies to develop a sense of trust and security amongst others, which is vital for their mental and emotional well-being.

and much more...

Being a new parent can be daunting and isolating. By joining our Happy Babies community, we will ensure a variety of opportunities to network with other parents and caregivers, sharing experiences, hints and tips but also gaining that vital emotional support that is so frequently forgotten about. All of this, and more, is present in all of our sessions alongside refreshments.
