Last week I went to check out the brand new Bloom Baby Sensory Classes and that weeks theme was all about Frogs. There was so much to see and touch for the little ones and the set up was brilliant!
I might not had a baby in tow to join in but It was amazing watching all of the Mum’s with their little ones really get into the class and all the songs and there where plenty of smiles and laughter when the babies explored the pond like set up. The minute I stepped into the room and saw the set up Aly has created for the weekly theme I knew that she was very passionate about her job and making the classes enjoyable to not only to the little ones but also for the mum’s, she has a very attentive and friendly way about her. Bonds have been created by the Mum’s attending the classes which was confirmed again when I asked some of them what they thought about Bloom Baby Classes. The fact that the class is very structured is great for parents to feel at ease so they get to know the songs and can sing along. Some parents find it scary trying out new things and sometimes a routine is helping to feel more “settled” and look forward to it every week.
My highlight was when Aly handed out some frog hairbands for the babies to wear I mean could it get any cuter then dressing up your baby as a frog?? And she also uses Makaton within her class which I think is fantastic. Despite not having my own baby to bring along it was a joy to watch all the little ones explore. My babies are now 9 and 13 so no more baby classes for me but this is the perfect class for any parents to enjoy it is friendly and a lot of fun!
About Bloom Baby Classes
The multi-award winning sensory classes are designed to develop your baby’s fine and gross motor skills, support their cognitive development and promote bonding between you and your baby.
The Caterpillar Club – 6 weeks to 6 months
A gentle baby development class that encourages the natural development of babies from 1 to 6 months. Each activity has been carefully researched to strengthen the bond between parent and baby. The class focuses especially on the physical development of your child with lots of opportunities for tummy time to help strengthen the core muscles and develop good neck control. Our Bloom baby development activities aid with colic, reflux and constipation and even teach baby how to roll. Each activity is to music which has been created to aid language skills and teach body awareness.
Busy Bee’s – 6 months to 15 months
A highly interactive musical class where we focus on babies growing confidence in the big wide world. Encouraging both fine and gross motor skills, teaching body awareness and stimulating your baby’s perception of sounds with our fun range of bright props and exciting heuristic treasure baskets whilst developing their social skills with fellow Bloom babies.
Aly who is a mum of 3 – with the youngest born in November 2022 – is very enthusiastic and really loves giving all the babies (and parents) a very fun experience in her 1 hour class. There is tummy time, flying babies (in a gentle way of course), the rainbow parachute comes out and there are plenty of bubbles – who doesn’t love bubbles!
Bloom Baby Classes offer a warm, welcoming environment for you and your baby and gives you the chance to meet other mums & dad’s. The custom soundtrack and the songs are fun and engaging and easy for parents to follow. There are plenty of multicoloured sensory lights and plenty of moments to create magical memories with your little one.
Feedback from Parents:
“My 3rd baby is 4 months old and was born prematurely so I didn’t know if he might be too young to enjoy the class but I had a great exchange with Aly before joining the class and after the first few visits to the classes I could really see how it benefits his development and the way he reacts and gets involved is lovely to see. The class is so friendly and I like that it is structured but everything comes so organicity, this is one of the best classes I have ever been to and I love the fact that I can go home and teach my older children the new macaton I learn from Aly.”
Charlie, Mum of 3
“The Bloom Baby Classes are the highlight of our week. Aly is amazing, just everything from the set up with so many colours and all the little details she creates are just great. My 4 months old son use to be sleepy the first few times we came but now he is very much aware and his focus and his development has really come along. He really enjoys it and looks forward to it.”
