An activity program for babies and toddlers in Byron and the Tweed has netted a national award, voted by parents.

Baby Sensory from Tweed to Byron, the first of its kind in Australia, has taken out the What’s On 4 Kids 2017 Award for Best National Baby and Toddler Activity.

The group was chosen from among the best classes, activity leaders, family days out and party services from throughout Australia for babies and children up to two years of age.

The Baby Sensory program, founded by Dr Lin Day in 2006, supports babies’ early development through exposure to sensory experiences. Baby Sensory is specifically designed from birth to 13 months, to support a baby’s development.

Those who have taken their young ones along say it’s fun for the adults too.

‘Babies have an amazing capacity to learn in their first year and at Baby Sensory we don’t waste a single second of this valuable time,’ the group said in a media release announcing its win.

‘Research has shown that many babies who attended the classes were months ahead developmentally of other babies of the same age, while attending the one-hour classes once a week also strengthened the bond between parent and the child,’ the group claims.

Baby Sensory classes are held at the Seagulls Cub, Tweed Heads, and the Brunswick Valley Uniting Church Hall, Brunswick Heads.
