Today on Bristol Mum is a review of Adventure Babies Bristol, weekly story and sensory adventures through books for 0-4 year olds.
Classes take place in term-time in Clifton, Westbury-on-Trym, Downend and Patchway and sessions include great sensory messy play activities that your little one can get stuck into without you having to clear up afterwards!
Adventure Babies sessions are split into different age groups in order to meet the needs of different ages.
You can read the following local parent’s review of Adventure Babies to find out more…
How long have you been going to Adventure Babies, where is the class and how old is your child?
We’ve just completed a fantastic 5 week course with Adventure Babies at their Clifton venue. It’s held in a large, warm room at All Saints Church on Pembroke Road, with plenty of space for prams. My daughter Amelia is now 6 months old and so inquisitive, I’m looking forward to the next course in January!
What activities do you do at Adventure Babies?
There is a great balance – each class starts off with a giant book and sensory bag for our babies to join in. There are 4 different sensory areas which follow the theme of the book for independent play. The dark tent is a favourite of ours, Amelia is so stimulated by the bright lights inside! The other areas are full of different materials and objects for the babies to play with. We always finish with a visually stimulating themed song, which my daughter loves!
What props/toys are used and what books have been read?
It really does bring storytelling to life! We’ve read the snail and the whale, bear hunt, monkey puzzle, aliens in underpants and the scarecrow wedding. There are plenty of sensory props to accompany the story and they vary each week. Amelia particularly liked the bells and grass pom pom! There is also a giant puppet which comes around to each baby to see and feel, which is based on the main character of the book.
How do you think classes aid your child’s development?
Adventure babies is an innovative, fun and creative way to help develop Amelia’s language and communication skills. She gets to play alongside lots of other babies and watch how they move and interact. Emma clearly puts a lot of effort into the class structure to ensure it offers stimulating activities in a safe, caring way.
What is your child’s favourite thing at Adventure Babies?
Amelia absolutely loves the messy play, which changes every week. It’s great that adventure babies offers that aspect as I’d rather not have to clear up gloop at home!
Please tell me more about Emma and what she is like.
You can see Emma has a real passion for learning and development through fun and interactive activities. Her warm persona makes the classes very enjoyable for the parents as well as the babies.
Is it a friendly class?
It’s so friendly! I’ve met some great mums (and dads!) and we all look forward to our Monday meet up at Adventure Babies.
Anything else you would like to say about Adventure Babies?
Amelia sleeps like a dream after each class!! Added bonus 🙂
