My name is Helen Whiting & I am very happy to welcome you to Baby Sensory where I run classes weekly in Braintree, Halstead, Dunmow & surrounding areas! I have a background working with babies & young children aged birth to 8yrs. I started my career working at a Preparatory School as a Nursery Teacher, I then went onto working as a Deputy Manager of a Day Care Nursery. Both roles were very enjoyable as I have always loved watching babies & young children grow and develop their own little characters! I then had a career change & for 9yrs I worked in Aviation as an Airline Duty Manager, Very challenging at times! Although it was a great job with many perks, unfortunately the long hours & unpredictable nature of the industry meant that after giving birth to my son Oliver, in December 2010 I found myself looking for a new occupation that would help me achieve a better balance of working whilst having as much time as possible at home with my new family. I always knew one day I would return to Child Development! I came across Baby Sensory when I started taking my son to classes. He was captivated by the amazing themes, songs, signing, light shows, puppet shows and many props used with other sensory experiences whilst, I was impressed by the variety of unique activities. As a parent, I wanted to give my child the best possible start. Baby Sensory stimulates babies & encourages their development during that fabulous first year. Every class brought something more exciting to enjoy together which made our bond so special whilst it also gave me new ideas I could take home & recreate within my son's routine. When my Fiance joined us at the class, he understood why I spoke so highly of it! As you will see it is so different from anything you may have been to before! I’m now thrilled and excited to bring the delights of Baby Sensory to the wonderful babies of North Essex! I have such a rewarding job as a Baby Sensory class leader where each day I enjoy something new, sharing new experiences with all babies of North Essex. I look forward to welcoming you to my Baby Sensory classes. come along and see the delights of Baby Sensory for yourselves with a no-obligation trial class, contact me for more information. See you soon! . . . . . Helen :o)

Holidays Policy:

Baby Sensory does not offer refunds.  If you are away due to sickness please let your class leader know this unfortunately will be an absence and missed class. Another way to avoid losing a session for holidays or sickness is to offer your place in class to a family member or a friend who also has a baby, while you are away. You would need to inform your class leader in this instance. During school holidays, if you have older children, please ask your Classleader if they are happy for the older child to attend the class due to Health & Safety of the other parents and babies, if they do attend they must be supervised at all times.


Twins discount:

Here at Baby Sensory I offer twin discounts but only for 1 parent per 2 children.

Discount offered is £110 rather than the £140 for the 10 week course which your online booking may highlight. This is a Baby Sensory Braintree discount not indorsed by Baby Sensory UK.



Approx four weeks before your term runs out your class leader will ask you whether you wish to renew for another term, you should receive an automated email from Baby Sensory Braintree. Fees are to be paid before the term start date. Fees are £70 for a term of 10weeks, if registering part way through the term then fee of £7 per class will calculate course fees to term end. Once term fees have been paid in full, Baby Sensory do not offer refunds for cancellations or missed classes so please be sure you wish to attend the full course before payment.


Cancellation of Classes policy:

Baby Sensory will endeavour to run classes during bad weather e.g. treacherous snow conditions. However should we need to cancel a class parents will be notified/contacted (please make sure phones numbers are kept up to date).
