⭐With over 40 years of practical experience working with parents and children and driven by the passion and commitment to offer the best possible service, Dr Lin Day developed Baby Sensory and Hello Baby to provide the support and knowledge necessary to lead baby learning and development forwards and to provide parents with confidence in caring for their baby in the most important year of life.

⭐Dr Lin Day has designed and written all course training handbooks, lesson plans, and articles to support Practitioners running Baby Sensory, Toddler Sense, Baby Foundations, and Hello Baby classes and courses. All of Lin’s programmes focus on the senses, play, activities to stimulate learning and development, the importance of movement, and the parent-infant bond.
