About Adventure Babies

Take your little one on an adventure!

Each week transport your baby to another world. Multi award winning themed adventures begin with an interactive story telling session and are followed by exciting sensory activities including messy play 

Adventure Babies founder, Emma Garbett, is extremely passionate about developing future readers! Reading well and with enjoyment, is a skill that unlocks opportunities in school and in later life.  By placing this importance on reading, we show babies and young children that reading is enjoyable & important, therefore hopefully creating budding future readers!

Amazingly, by the time your baby is one your baby will already know all of the sounds needed to speak their native language. By coming along to Adventure Babies we ensure that your baby will have opportunities to build these vital communication skills along with many ideas to take home with you too.

I’m Emma and I am the founder of Adventure Babies story sensory adventures. Before starting Adventure Babies I spent 10 years as a dedicated, ambitious and successful primary school teacher gaining experience and knowledge of child development and taking on whole school senior leadership responsibilities. I love teaching, love working with children and have a real passion for child development.

The first five years of a child’s life are so crucial to their development that after having my son I knew I needed to find a way of combining my passion for teaching and learning but also spending time being a mummy and providing a new opportunity for mums, dads, grandparents and obviously babies across the UK! I am very proud to have started a new genre of baby classes with our literary adventures.

It has been an exciting time for Adventure Babies with new franchises in many locations.  The classes in Exeter were finalists in the Exeter Family Favourites Awards and Bristol classes finalists in the Hoop awards.

Several new adventures have been added to our collection and we have some wonderful new seals of approval! Micheala Morgan a published children’s author attended our classes with her granddaughter and left a fantastic review as well as amazing high profile mum Coleen Rooney whose son Kit has been attending for 6 months now.
