Toddler Sense

The Toddler Sense programme has been designed by Baby Sensory founder Dr. Lin Day to create a safe and enjoyable environment in which your toddler can learn through play. The programme builds on skills that your baby has acquired during their first year.
The Toddler Sense session starts in an exploratory play area which is set out differently each week. Each session is unique and the equipment for the session has been specifically selected to match the theme. This is your chance to share an adventure with your toddler!
What may look like a balance beam to you will be transformed into a bridge that crosses a crocodile swamp or a plank for your young pirate to walk across the following week. The Toddler Sense Class Leader, Victoria, starts each session by introducing the theme and then by suggesting ways in which you can bring this part of the session to life for your toddler. Adventure play is followed by structured, themed activities, which provide a wealth of ideas that can be continued at home. Classes are held in Detling Village Hall on Tuesdays. Booking is essential.
