Welcome to the Sensory Sessions, we are delighted to have you along!
About our classes
The Sensory Sessions organise sensory play classes for babies and toddlers, messy play sessions and parent education sessions in Edinburgh and the Lothians.
Our classes are led by occupational therapists, who are experts in ‘doing’. In babies and toddlers this is play, child development and the practice of sensory integration. Each session of our programme is designed to
- introduce new experiences
- work on fine & gross muscle movement
- stimulate the child’s senses – visual (sight), auditory (hearing), olfactory (smell), tactile (touch), vestibular (balance) and proprioception (body positioning in space). We leave taste up to you and your weaning journey!
Most importantly are classes are fun and you will really enjoy watching your baby learn and develop new skills.
We want you to feel confident about your parenting, join a network of amazing mums & dads and to learn about child development. Our classes are relaxed, baby led and informal, you are very welcome to make yourself at home!
At the classes we’ll give you lots of ideas of activities to do at home with your baby and there are often activity hand outs and packs to take away.
The Sensory Sessions run different classes including sensory play sessions, messy play sessions and our parent education sessions. Check out our timetable for class times and please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you need any further information on our services.
Alongside joining our classes you also join a community of amazing local parents who are supporting each other, sharing information, coming to meet ups and supporting local charities together. Our mums tell us that they benefit hugely from our community, meeting friends and learning how to communicate and play with their little ones.
Our occupational therapists are health professions registered with the Health & Care Professions Council and the College of Occupational Therapists. We are also members of the Sensory Integration Network.
