Natalia: Baby Sensors (they call us both baby sensory and baby sensors) are the first educational activities in Russia for children since birth: the youngest guest in the 20-year history of the program was 4 days old. Baby Sensori is a unique method of early development, fully adapted for Russian moms and dads.
It is a structured, fun, colorful activity, each of which is unique during the annual program, and is filled with useful information about early development. In the classroom everything is collected that is the best of advanced techniques and is supported by the research of experts and the most founder – Dr. Lin Day.
Irina: The uniqueness of Baby Sensori is that it was created, indeed, for children from birth. Natasha has been attending classes with her youngest daughter for several months.
When they started to study, the girl was 2 months old, and this is not the youngest “pupil” – our baby sensor – the kids are even younger than us. The list goes on, including excellent musical accompaniment – many songs were created by Lin herself, many English ancient songs were carefully and carefully adapted. This is undoubtedly a new word in the field of “developmental” programs in Russia.
It is even difficult to compare with something.
Nataliya: Baby Sensory is a one-year program of weekly classes, they are built on the knowledge of the world by babies by stimulating all the senses with the direct participation of their mother or father and their young peers. Baby Sensori takes into account that in the first year of life the child lays the basic foundation for the rapid and successful development in the following years. After all, the brain of children in the first year of life increases in volume by 2 times, and never again in life will there be such amazing discoveries that occur during this period.
The lessons of Baby Sensory are the development of hearing through songs, acquaintance with a variety of sounds, and stimulation of vision while observing beautiful visual activities, and various tactile sensations, and even acquaintance with smells and the formation of smell. All activities in the classroom are specifically designed taking into account the stages of physical and emotional development of babies.
Irina: We spent a year in order to adapt the methodology for Russia and prepare our teachers to teach at the highest level. During this year, we translated the songs, and not just translated, but did a great job, so that, for example, the words of the song corresponded to the gestures used during these songs, recorded these songs with a professional singer in the studio, bought equipment for classes (and all for Baby Sensori brought straight from England and every toy is checked and approved by Lin personally.
Considering that each lesson the equipment changes, and the lessons in the year 40, – you can imagine the number of titles!), Our teachers passed trainings and passed exams in England and after that they were preparing for the classes for a long time and diligently – after all for each lesson, according to the standards of Baby Sensori, it takes three full days for a teacher, and this time is often not enough, because so much new information needs to be studied, processed and then brought to class by young parents.
Natalia: After classes, many of our guests prefer not to disperse right away, but to use the opportunity to feed the baby, talk with other moms and discuss development issues with them. And that’s great! After all, communication and the opportunity to share experiences, as has been proven, add positive emotions to the lives of young parents.
Not only mothers, but also fathers and grandmothers come to our classes. This is a terrific experience and extraordinary emotions that arise in any generation!
Irina: You can find out if you come to the Baby Sensory open lesson, which also happens with us. You can find out about them on the website: www.babysensory.ru.
