A former family support worker from Ipswich has launched a third baby class just months after signing up to be a franchisee of the Baby Sensory group.

Hayley Sangster, 36, started the Ipswich branch of the Baby Sensory group in October after recognising a need for classes which develop a baby’s interaction with their environment.

Currently, the classes run on Tuesdays at Rushmere Village Hall from 10am to 11pm, and at the Millennium Jubilee Hall in Kesgrave from 10.15am to 11.15am on Fridays.

Now, Mrs Sangster will be starting a third class at Dance East from Wednesday, running from 10.30am due to a high demand for the service.

She said: “It’s going really well. It’s quite a social event, and every activity we do has an outcome or different learning experience for the baby.”

On Tuesday, a free taster session was held at Rushmere Village Hall, where parents had the opprtunity to try exploratory activities with their child, including clapping games, rhythm exercises with shakers and balance activities.

Mrs Sangster added: “No week is the same so they can come every week and never experience the same thing twice which is quite unique.

“Sensory play is crucial for a baby’s life and I am really pleased it has taken off.”

An additional drop-in baby group will take place until 12.30pm directly after the Tuesday sensory group.
