Sensory Baby Play Taster Sessions at Gymboree Kensington & Chelsea
Gymboree is one of the only pre-school activities dedicated to newborn babies aged 0-6 months. Gymboree’s expertise in baby development spans several decades and our classes are designed to introduce babies to new sights, sounds and sensory experiences combined with developing new skills such as eye tracking, focus and understanding object permanence.
The class also introduces parents and carers to the many ways to stimulate very young babies – we provide parents with an entire repertoire of songs and age-appropriate activities to take home each week.
Our Sensory Baby Play classes use a variety of songs, movement, infant signing, puppets, fibre optics, bubbles, musical instruments and baby-sized apparatus. In every class we enjoy group activities, as well as exploration of our “Sensory Stations” which include hands-on props to provide endless amusement for the babies – and adults too!
Taster sessions are booked on a first come, first serve basis through NCT Kensington & Chelsea. Taster Sessions are twenty minutes long and there is a maximum of ten babies in each demonstration. Please find below the Taster Times:
2.40pm First Taster session
3.30pm Second Taster session
4.10pm Third Taster session
5.00pm NCT Coffee Afternoon Ends
The taster sessions will comprise of sections of our Sensory Baby Play classes involving activities specifically designed to stimulate babies’ senses and help them develop. The activity sessions are shorter than our usual classes to provide an insight into how the classes are structured. The activities will be teacher led and involve a selection of the following baby activities: Baby Signing, Baby Massage, Tummy Time and a range of physical development activities through prop exploration e.g. peek a boo scarves.
The time in between the Taster Sessions will be time for your members to explore our sensory stations which include hands on props and equipment for babies and time for adults to meet and get to know other new parents and carers too! It will also provide time for your members to get to know our Gymboree teachers, find out information regarding our classes and get to know Gymboree. Please note, NCT Members who have not booked into the session are welcome to come along and meet us at Gymboree and explore our play area and Sensory Baby Play stations when the Taster Sessions are not being led.
Our Gymboree Team will provide some light refreshments in our reception area for the NCT guests. Please note that unfortunately, we do not allow any food or drink in the play area.
