Baby Sensory Jeddah

Baby Sensory is a UK based program that can provide invaluable benefits for both moms and babies.

I had a chance to sit down with franchise owner and class leader, Sondos Haji. She attended Baby Sensory classes with her own two children when she lived in Dubai, so when she moved to Jeddah she realized the need for the program here. Sondos is now among the 400+ franchisees and class leaders who must “complete a rigorous one year training course, shadow existing teachers and learn in great detail about the course and the philosophy behind it.

Sondos has a very confident, gentle demeanor that contributes to a calm, fun atmosphere; something new moms and babies alike find reassuring. She  explained that the program helps reduce the likelihood of postpartum depression, increases bonding between mom and baby and gives moms a chance to socialize and learn from other mothers. She happily described how moms who met at Baby Sensory forged new friendships and spend time together after class. For most new moms, this is an exciting prospect, given the typically isolating schedule of feedings and naps.

Of course babies benefit as well. The brain develops at an astounding rate during infancy. Offering stimulation through all the babies’ senses helps open pathways in the brain that strengthen cognition, language skills, social skills and overall development.

Before and after each activity, Sondos explains how the baby benefits. For example, she uses sign language during songs to help babies improve IQ, listening skills and focus. There is also the amazing ability for the child to eventually sign his or her needs well before they are able to speak. Before tummy time, Sondos tell the moms it is great for strengthening back and neck muscles in preparation for sitting; when they all move a small parachute up and down to send toys flying, she explains that watching objects bounce was great for focus skills and after each activity, she is sure to praise the babies, because it helps build their self-esteem.

There is clearly much we can do to help babies develop well and participating in Baby Sensory classes is a wonderful way to learn how.

Classes are structured with babies’ needs and abilities in mind. Mothers are welcome to step aside to use the changing mat or give a feeding and after 30 minutes of sensory activities, there is a 15-minute free play break for mommies and babies to socialize before finishing the class with a few more activities.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

For now, classes run on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Sessions are open for babies 0-6 months old and 7-13 months old. Nannies are welcome to come as assistants to the mother, but class participation is for moms and babies only. In consideration of working moms, afternoon classes will be added very soon.

Monthly and per term membership packages are available and drop-in classes are an option for busy moms. Please contact Sondos directly for pricing.

Snowy Forest at Jamea Plaza

Snowy Forest Entrance

Jamea Plaza is located in the Jamea District across the street from King Abdulaziz University.  It is a smaller mall but does have a Hyperpanda, food court, Jarir Bookstore and plenty of kids’ shops.

The only play area in this mall is the famous Snowy Forest.  I  found that I really like this facility.  It is a less popular location, so the wear and tear on the equipment is minimal.  The ladies on staff communicated very effectively in English, and were exceptionally kind and accommodating both times i visited.  I also found the facility to be very clean, despite the fact they sell popcorn and sweet drinks.

Elevated obstacle course. Only open in evenings and children must wear a harness and meet height requirements.

This facility is designed so kids aged 1-10 years old can get a lot of physical activity.  It has climbing walls, big slides, a trampoline, and even a elevated obstacle course.  It also has a monitored toddler section that bigger kids are not allowed to play in.  This is perfect for little ones as it is padded, safe and will only have kids of similar height and age inside.  I like that kids are free to stay for the whole day.  I found it to be a bargain at only 55Sar per child (Helpful Hint: If you have the 2016 Entertainer Book there is a buy one get one entrance voucher, not valid during holidays.)

Toddler play area

I found the safety aspects of this facility to be superior to any play center we have been to in Jeddah.  Everything is padded, except for the area around the trampolines, and in super condition. We found no broken or damaged equipment.  In addition, CCTV monitors allow you to watch your child’s behavior in hidden areas.

There are also security measures in place for exiting with a child.  Parents must show the child’s armband and receipt in order to exit.   You can exit and enter as many times as you wish, provided you keep the armband and receipt.

During prayer times children are allowed to continue playing however, the staff will be not be available to admit new children or allow children to exit.

The pitfalls of this facility are few, the main one being the restrooms.  Shoes are not allowed, even for adults, but communal slippers are available to wear while using the restroom.  There has never been any toilet paper or paper towels  and of course there is a lot of water on the floors.  Finally, there is no diaper-changing area infants.  My second complaint  is the food sold within the complex.  They sell popcorn, sweet drinks and water.  Despite the number of cleaners on staff, I just don’t like to see kids taking their treats within the play area.

Party Room

Snowy Forest does offer a birthday party package.  The fee per child is 80Sar with a minimum of 20 children.  This includes a decorated party room and use of the sound and video system for 4 hours along with a kids’ meal from one of the fast food companies in the food court.

All in all, I do recommend giving this Snowy Forest a try.  It was a clean and safe environment for the kids and of course they had a ball!

Pizza Hut on the Corniche

13179047_1084874881551694_1422365991740468271_nSummer has arrived in Jeddah so the hunt is on for cool places to hang out with the family.  A place where parents can enjoy their time as well as the kids!   Pizza Hut on the Corniche may be the answer to please all members of your family.

Pizza Hut on the corniche is located across the street from Fakieh Aquarium and on the corner where Sari Road meets Corniche Road.  This particular Pizza Hut is super-sized so it can comfortably accommodate many families at one time.  The family section is upstairs (they do have an elevator for strollers or physically challenged people).

At the top of the stairs patrons are greeted with an unobstructed view of the beautiful Red Sea!  This is the selling point for the adults.  For the little people in our lives there is a 2 story play area equipped with a huge curling tube slide and electronic token operated rides.  To get the tokens you will need to give money to your server and in return they will bring you a set number of tokens.

Pizza Hut serves more than just pizza.  This particular Pizza Hut has a nice sized salad bar, they offer pasta’s, buffalo wings, cheese sticks, and chicken fingers just to name a few of the unique menu items.  Pizza is of course the specialty of the house—you can choose thin, pan, or classic crust in a variety of flavors to include spicy or cheesy!  Meat toppings include pepperoni and sausage as well as unique meat topping like seafood, chicken and lamb or you always have the option of choosing one of their pre-created pizza’s.

It was a great afternoon having pizza with family and friends.  Everyone was happy with the food, the kids played for a few hours in the play area while the adults visited and watched the stunning sun set.

Pizza Hut does not offer formal birthday party packages for kids—with games and balloons etc.…. However, reservations for parties can be made to accommodate such events and parents can bring in their own cake and decorations while ordering food for everyone off of the menu.
