Being a mum !!


Before I became a Mum, I used to work in the travel industry, selling safari holidays to Africa. I had been doing it for almost 10 years, it was my life, and I loved it. Africa is a magical place and I was fortunate enough to visit some of its best game reserves.

I then had my son James, and my heart exploded with love for him. It was frightening how quickly I forgot about travel and how I only wanted to be his Mum. I started taking James to Baby Sensory when he was 11 weeks old and he ABSOLUTELY loved it!! It was the highlight of his week as well as mine.

Having left South Africa several years ago, I had lost my support network and I wanted a class which not only gave my son the best start in life but gave me an opportunity to meet new mums and gain some confidence in becoming a parent. Baby Sensory did this and MORE. When the opportunity arose to run classes in the Clapham and Balham areas, I felt this was a wonderful way of sharing the experience and joy that Baby Sensory has brought to James and I, with other mums and their little ones.

I look forward to meeting you and your babies, being part of their early years and having lots and LOTS of fun!!

Julia's Baby Sensory classes run in Clapham. The Award Winning Baby Development classes are held weekly in Clapham. These locations are easily accessible for parents living in the local communities including; Clapham, Balham, Battersea, Brixton and Streatham Hill. If you are looking for an exciting activity which will be fun for you and will help with your baby’s sensory development call your Class Leader, Julia, who will arrange for you and your baby to visit one of her classes.


The cost for Baby Sensory Clapham is £10 per class, payable per term upfront.
Balham and Clapham classes are 10 weeks per term (£100 total)

These are Baby Sensory booking terms and conditions. Please read before booking a place in a class.

You can join a class at any time in the term if there is a place available.  

When you have reserved a place in your class you will receive an acknowledgement email which includes the venue, term dates and the class fee.

Refunds/Cancellations of classes:
Regretfully 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 to inform us of a change in person attending including their name, baby's name, date of birth and a contact number.

Bookings are non-refundable and non-transferable. Baby Sensory is under no obligation to refund a booking in the event that you are unable to attend or wish to cancel a single session or the entire term.

If you have a prior hospital or doctors appointment and are unable to make your usual session we may be able to fit you into another class that week in an alternative venue. Please contact to inquire.

Regretfully you are unable to carry missed sessions over to the new term.

If your class leader is unable to run your class because of illness etc Baby Sensory will try and substitute an alternative class leader. If this isn't possible you will be notified of cancellation by text or phone call. Baby Sensory will endeavor to run a 'catch up' class at the end of the term to replace your session. If this isn't possible you will receive a full refund.

In certain exceptional circumstances Baby Sensory may be prevented from running classes due to situations beyond their control. These may include floods or treacherous driving conditions (snow or ice) which would pose a risk to our class leaders and parents if they ventured onto the roads. On these occasions Baby Sensory would endeavor to offer a 'catch up' class at the end of the term but if this wasn't possible Baby Sensory reserves the right not to refund due to the exceptional nature of the circumstances.

FAQ's about Baby Sensory:

Is my baby too young?

It is never too early to introduce your little ones to a variety of sensory experiences.

Babies have begun learning from inside the womb already and as they come into this world they hit the ground running! 

A newborn’s brain contains more than 100 billion brain cells (neurons). Some of these neurons were wired in the prenatal period for specific functions such as breathing and heartbeat. However, the majority of synaptic connections for vision, language, hearing, smell, taste, movement and learning will be formed in the first three months of life. 

Stimulation from birth increases neural growth and whilst we certainly do this in our classes, it is also important to mention that touching, talking, singing, reading, smiling, signing and playing with babies from birth, nourishes the brain and develops potential for a lifetime.

Our classes provide a rich environment full of interesting sights, sounds, smells, taste, colours, textures and language, which builds a foundation that will make all subsequent learning easier.

What do we do in class and why have an Exploratory Play?

The structure of the class is divided into 3 parts and reason behind this is because your baby has a natural play-rest-play cycle, which lasts about an hour.

The first 25 minutes we “Say Hello to the Sun” followed by a number of stimulating activities varying from; puppet shows, baby massage, traditional rhyming and visual activities to sing and sign, texture exploring, messy play and making music (to name but a few!) 

We then break for 20 minutes, where the babies can rest and explore the Exploratory Play under their own steam or Free-Flow Play.

During the Exploratory Play there are no set rules or guidelines. Your baby decides what toys interest him/her the most, how he/she explores them and how long the play will last. Free-flow play enables your baby to entertain himself/herself for short periods, which will become a beneficial life habit.

The Exploratory Play also provides a social setting for the parents. Here you can meet new Mum’s, try out equipment and materials, gain ideas for home use and spend quality time with your baby.

We then head back to the Sensory Area for the remaining 15 minutes for more stimulating activities before “Waving Goodbye”
