Hi, my name is Amy. I’m married to the lovely Stu and we have a wonderful daughter named Elyssia. We were both born in the UK, and in 2013 we moved across the world to make New Zealand our home. I completed my Bachelor of Nursing degree in the UK in 2008 and worked as a nurse both there and in New Zealand, until I went on maternity leave.

I have always held a keen interest in child development, ever since I completed a GCSE in the subject at high school, and my passion for babies only grew stronger when I had one of my own! Having spent a number of years at university and in further post-graduate study, I understand the importance of education and appreciate how vital learning is for babies, from birth.

I had heard so many great things about Baby Sensory from my friends and family with children in the UK, and discovered the amazing world of Baby Sensory for myself when I first took Elyssia along to classes in Wellington. The classes were amazing! They provided hundreds of different activities to encourage play, speech and reading and the classes were completely different every week. I received great ideas for play to try at home and was excited to see a program like this available in New Zealand. I love how all of the activities and experiences on offer at Baby Sensory are based on years of research around how babies learn, grow and make sense of the world. I believe Baby Sensory will give your baby a fantastic start in life because it is encouraging so many different experiences right from birth. It is not just 'another baby class' for parents and babies, but a totally amazing and breath-taking opportunity to enhance your baby's development in a fun and enjoyable way. It is also a wonderful way to meet new friends and relax with your baby.

I am passionate about Baby Sensory and I am delighted to be part of sharing these early learning experiences with you and your family/whānau through the fun and laughter of Baby Sensory classes.


In addition to her Baby Sensory training, Amy has the following qualifications:

Bachelor of Nursing (BNurs Hons) – University of Manchester, UK

Red Cross First Aid Certificate - First Aid for Young Children


Amy’s Baby Sensory classes run in Levin (Levin Uniting Church), Paraparaumu (Kāpiti Community Centre), Palmerston North (St Alban's Church, Hokowhitu) & Feilding (Feilding Library).

We also offer bespoke Baby Sensory parties for Birthdays, Christenings & other events - contact us for details.
