Registration forms: Please ensure you fill out the online registration details correctly, including the class you would like to attend. If you find you would like to change classes once confirmation has been sent, I will try my best to swap the classes for you. However, please note this could be difficult, especially if the term has begun and classes are full, therefore it is not always guaranteed.

Classes: Classes run in terms throughout the year but do not necessarily follow school term dates. You can join a class at any time if a place is available and just pay for the remainder of the term. Alternatively you can join the waiting list for a place in the following term. Once you have completed your booking you must attend consecutive weeks.
All places are non-refundable/ non-transferrable: Baby Sensory is under no obligation to refund or transfer your money in the event that you are unable to attend part of or the entire course. We regret that we are unable to offer an alternative for missed lessons. You are however, welcome to offer your place to a friend as a gift. If you are wanting to offer your place to another, please notify me as soon as possible so I can amend my registers. Please note there may be a £10.00 admin charge for any changes made. Thank you for your co-operation.
Refunds/ Cancellations of classes: Baby Sensory will endeavour to run classes during bad weather e.g. treacherous snow conditions. However, should classes need to be cancelled you will be notified/ contacted. Alternatively, you can contact me at any time on 07967927508. Baby Sensory has the right to cancel classes without refund in exceptional circumstances beyond my control (fire, flood, vehicle breakdown, serious illness, treacherous snow etc) but if possible I will run a catch up class at an alternative time, however, this is not guaranteed.
Missed Sessions: Baby Sensory is unable to offer concessions for sickness or holidays but you are welcome to give your place to a friend if you know you will be away one week. Please contact us to inform us of a change in person attending including their name, baby's name, date of birth and a contact number. Regretfully you are unable to carry missed sessions over to the new term.
Other Siblings: I am aware a lot of parents do have other children, however, please note that our classes are designed for babies from the age of birth to 13 months only. All older children aged from 18 months to 5 years are unfortunately unable to attend our classes due to health and safety reasons. I am sorry for any inconvenience caused.

We started coming to Vicky's Baby Sensory classes when Benjamin was three months old and only left when he was getting too old for it at 13 months. We both had a great time and I can't recommend both the classes and Vicky herself highly enough. The activities are varied and a lot of fun (for the parents, too!), and very stimulating, with a new theme each week. The music and props are great, and Vicky always suggests things to make and play with at home. Benjamin's Dad came along with us quite a few times as well, he didn't want to miss out! Personal highlights include the Carnival of the animals puppet show and the light show week. I also like the way the class is split into two parts with a break in between which gives the babies time to explore a big selection of toys on offer and the mums (and dads) to chat, as well as providing time for a quick feed or nappy change. Having a full hour in total makes it all feel very relaxed. Vicky herself is simply wonderful, super friendly, very engaged with what she is doing (she clearly loves it!), and we already miss her. She was a big part of Benjamin's first year. We loved the class so much we even booked Vicky for a Baby Sensory first birthday party which was great. Thank you so much Vicky! Erika and Benjamin
I started taking Ivy to Baby Sensory when she was about three months old and we stayed as long as we could (until Ivy was about 13 months). We absolutely loved the class and I'm not exaggerating when I say it was a highlight of our week. As the months went on, Ivy got more and more out of it and really enjoyed all the activities that had been carefully conceived and put together by Vicky. She particularly loved the songs at the beginning and end and always did lots of waving and clapping to them. I could see how much she was loving it and it made it a really special experience for us both. Thank you so much Vicky for everything you do. There are so many baby classes out there, but this one stands out for me by a long way. I'm already looking forward to having a second child so we can go back again! Jo and Ivy
'We went to Baby Sensory for the first time when Molly was only 6 weeks old...And then Vicky couldn't get rid of us, we continued until Molly was 11 months (when I had to return to work). We went to various other groups during this time, but this was our favourite. In all that time no two weeks have ever been the same. I wish I had an ounce of Vicky's imagination, but I don't, so I just steal her ideas to use at home! The sessions are completely friendly and relaxed. The babies all seem to get so much out of it, but I'm not sure who has more fun, the babies or the mummies (and daddies)!' Lisa and Molly
'We started baby sensory when Rose was 8 weeks old and we carried on going until Rose's first birthday, it really was the highlight of our week and the best baby class we have been to. Vicky is absolutely lovely and so passionate about what she does. The classes are wonderfully planned, fun and engaging and the babies love her! I'm still using the play skills I have learnt from Vicky and will treasure our time spent at baby sensory. We cried when it was our last class. I would highly recommend Vicky and baby sensory classes to anyone.' Amy and Rose
'We joined Baby Sensory when Emmie was 7 months old and from the first session we were both hooked. Vicky captures the attention of all the babies and has such enthusiasm and energy. Emmie was always mesmerised by Vicky. Every week was a different theme, with such original ideas. I would highly recommend Vicky and Baby Sensory to all mums I am just sorry we didn't discover it sooner as I know classes start from birth. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.' Zoe and Emmie Walker
