Baby sensory workshops to use vacant space in Fylde Road Industrial Estate in Preston
Plans for a baby sensory unit are being tabled for an industrial estate in central Preston.
It will allow applicant Ellie Bateson, who runs workshops at about eight different venues now, to hold her classes out of a more permanent venue.
The two empty storage units at Fylde Road Industrial Estate, which are earmarked for the baby sensory unit, have been vacant for a number of years.
Planning documents from agent Iain Scales of Scales Architecture state: “Baby Sensory is a franchised learning and development programme for parents and babies aged from birth to 13 months.
“The applicant currently runs classes from a total of eight remote venues but the business model has now given the applicant confidence to seek a more permanent venue which will allow for both weekly classes and further programmes from ante-natal stage through to pre-school.
“It is envisaged that 17 Baby Sensory and Toddler Sense classes per week will be offered from the Fylde Road venue.
“A class consists of a one hour period of structured activities and free play, with a maximum of 20 children per session.
“Children are accompanied by a parent or carer at all times – a mandatory requirement of the business insurance.
