Hello, I’m Kathy and I am so excited to have joined the Adventure Babies story & sensory adventures team, leading baby classes in Exeter.
In common with Emma, who founded Adventure Babies over three years ago, I too have a long and well-established career in education. As a primary teacher I saw at once what a brilliant experience Adventure Babies offered parents and very young children. Sharing a book, or engaging in messy play with your child is an excellent way to bond with your child it is also a great way to help build language skills. I have seen first hand how much enjoyment my grandson gained from each activity when he attended Adventure Babies and the amazing benefits he gained from the sessions. He absolutely loves books and reading and will happily ‘read’ books to himself retelling the stories in his own words. I can’t wait to start my new venture providing this opportunity for joy and development to parents and their little ones in Devon & Somerset. I know we are all going to have a fantastic time!

We started classes with Kathy before lockdown and had 3 (or 4?) classes with her before everywhere closed. Kathy was wonderful and immediately began classes online through Zoom for her members. Each weekend, Kathy emails us with the story for each session and ideas for the props so we can make it as sensory rich as possible for our babies (mostly found around the house or open ended materials). She begins each session with a song or rhyme to engage the babies, reads the stories with her wonderful props, actions and excitement and ends with follow on ideas we can do at home. Usually, in the class, these would be set up in trays ready for us to use and enjoy with our babies (wet/messy, soft/cuddly, light/dark etc).
Since then, Kathy decided to continue running the online sessions along with bedtime stories for those who are interested. We are really enjoying her classes and will continue for as long as we are able to support Kathy until her usual classes can get up and running.
Thanks again for everything you’re doing to keep us parents sane during lockdown, Kathy. We can’t wait to come back to classes again when we’re allowed to mingle once more!
