Who We Are
Baby Sensory Gold Coast was the first baby programme to draw on research and the work of child development theorists and childcare experts to offer a complete and holistic approach to learning and development for babies from birth to 13 months.
Toddler Sense introduces children aged 13 months to 3.6 years to a whole new world of adventure after Baby Sensory. Activities are designed to keep toddlers and children busy, active and stimulated by offering them a magical, multi-adventure experience in a safe and happy environment.
What to Expect
- Did you know that by the time your baby is born their brain will have over 100 billion neurons?
- Did you know that a baby’s brain doubles in weight during their first year and it never grows that fast again?
- Did you know that every week at Baby Sensory is different, so you will never experience the same class twice?
Baby Sensory award winning classes provide rich and varied sensory experiences through the imaginative use of music, lighting and textures together with baby signing, bonding activities, songs, brain games, massage, puppet shows, instruments, exercise, tummy time, dance and much much more. A baby who has experienced a Baby Sensory environment will develop coordination, awareness of the world, a love of music and the concentration so needed for further development. Carers not only benefit from the social interactions, they also experience the joy and sense of awe that arises from seeing their baby learn and develop. Following babies natural play-rest-play cycle allows a Baby Sensory class to run for 1 hour with multiple locations across the Gold Coast, Tweed and Byron areas.
A Toddler Sense session involves 25 minutes of free-flow Adventure Play followed by 30 minutes of structured activities. Toddlers are able to move about, run around, and let off stream. It also offers endless opportunities for exploration, balance, jumping, crawling, clamber over, climbing, stretching, problem-solving and imaginative thinking. Toddlers need to be with other children in order to learn important social skills such as negotiation, turn-taking and cooperation, which form the foundations for cooperative play and relationship building. Toddlers are creative, curious, imaginative, busy little people who enjoy exploration and new challenges. However, they are easily distracted and they may not listen, sit still or join in for very long. That’s why each of our activities in our structured play only lasts 3 minutes. Throughout the session, parents join in with the fun and offer toddlers support, praise and encouragement. Spending time with them raises their self-esteem and emotional security. Although the format of our classes is the same every week so the toddlers become familiar with the routine, Toddler Sense is in fact a 2-year activity programme which means you could come for 2 years and never experience the same class twice!
