Burleigh St John's Anglican Church is located at 14 Park Avenue. Parking is available on site. Please use the driveway to enter the grounds and classes are in the hall to the left of the church. Alternatively there is paid parking on the street and plenty of cafes and the beach to enjoy before or after class.

2) Attend an extra class another week – this may be at one of our other venues on a different day and time and subject to availability.

** All make up classes must be taken in the current term.
** No make up classes will be forwarded to the following term.
Thank you for your understand and co-operation.
I understand the importance of baby sleep times and routines and sometimes for no reason babies decide to change their sleep patterns. If this happens and another time slot would suit you better, don’t hesitate to talk to me about it. More often than not there is someone in another class who also wants to swap so sometimes we can work it out.
CANCELLATION OF CLASSES:
Baby Sensory will endeavor to run classes every week during the term. However should we need to cancel a class, parents will be contacted by email/text. Baby Sensory reserves the right to cancel classes without refund in exceptional circumstances beyond our control (e.g. fire, flood, etc.) Should a need to cancel a class occur, then an additional class will be added onto the end of the current term.
Please, in consideration of others, under NO circumstances bring your child/ren to class if they have or appear to have any symptoms of illness/sickness, including a runny nose.
Majority of classes are fully booked each term so if you know you are going to be away or if you or your baby is sick one week, please send me a quick text so I can manage numbers that week. Sometimes there are people wanting to swap classes for that week so it's helpful if I know if there is space or not.
Please ensure you include any allergies when you book online as we use balloons (latex allergy) and bubbles (soap allergy).
EXPLORATORY PLAY TIME:
There is always a 15 minute break in the middle of the classes due to the fact that babies lose concentration after 20-30minutes and need a break. This also gives you a chance to change nappies, feed or just socialise with other adults and babies. During this stage there is an exploratory play area where your baby can play and experience a variety of toys.
All equipment used during the activities, are cleaned thoroughly, between the classes. All toys in the play area are cleaned before and after classes, as much as possible. Please place anything that has been mouthed in the allocated basket that is to the side of the play area.
All the play mats, fleeces, cloths and soft toys in the play area are cleaned each week.
Cleaning agents used are:
- Earth Choice Liquid
- White vinegar
We do not have an immunisation policy, as Baby Sensory Ltd cannot dictate that every parent has to immunize their baby in order to join the classes. It has to be your personal choice and we cannot discriminate against those that have opted not to immunize. However, it is essential that we capture the data about who is/isn’t immunized, during the registration process, so that in an outbreak, those parents who have not immunized their baby can be contacted immediately and informed about the potential risk.
Likewise, if your baby becomes ill with a contagious illness such as ‘chicken pox’ or ‘hand, foot and mouth’, please let me know immediately so I can anonymously inform all adults who attend classes. No names will be mentioned.
HEALTH AND SAFETY:
Every effort is made by Baby Sensory to provide a hazard free zone, however parents are always responsible for the safety and well-being of babies and children at all times. We politely request adults to remove their shoes during class to prevent equipment getting dirty. Please make your class leader aware if you or your child has any allergies or special requirements/medical conditions. This information will be kept confidential except in the case of medical emergencies it may be shared with health care professionals Drinks (other than baby milk) and food are not allowed in the sensory or exploratory area.
The information you provided during registration contains personal data. Baby Sensory will record, process and keep your personal information secure in accordance with the Australian Privacy Act 1988. Information will not be passed/sent out to a third party.
OTHER FAMILY & FRIENDS:
Please feel free to bring grandparents, partners, other family members or friends to the classes at any time. There is a limit of 2 extra adults per baby unless you are informing me prior to class. This is just so that there are not too many people in each class as it can be very overwhelming for the babies. Please note if you need to bring an older child to class one week they are not permitted in the exploratory play area due to the safety of the other babies and must sit behind the adult in the sensory area. We recommend you bring your own toys to keep the child entertained so that you can continue to bond with baby.
Confidentiality is paramount and will be maintained at all costs by Baby Sensory unless the law should request otherwise (i.e Child protection).

PHOTOS & VIDEOS:
At Baby Sensory we LOVE to create beautiful memories for you, your family and your baby so please feel free to bring cameras along to class so that you can take photos of your own baby. Please refrain from taking photo’s of other babies unless you have their permission. I will not display photos on the Baby Sensory Facebook page unless you send them to me for that purpose or unless you have given permission when registering.

You are always welcome to come along to classes a bit earlier if you would prefer to feed before the class starts or stay later after class. If you need to feed your baby solids in class we ask that you do not feed them in the sensory area or exploratory play area due to allergies amongst other babies and so that everything stays clean for other classes. Please move to the side of the sensory area or any other clear space in the room.
