For babies 6-12m

Did you know that the development of movement is closely connected with the development of the sensorimotor system that wires the brain. This means: For optimal brain growth, babies need to move! There are things you can do to support this development.


Babies 6-12m are SO ACTIVE & need a safe "yes-space" to be able to put their developing skills to the test. This period of baby’s life is all about exploring and learning through movement & the senses: touching, grasping & releasing, mouthing & it is best done in a safe & enticing environment created especially for reaching new milestones, like sitting, crawling, standing, cruising, walking.


This 4 week course is designed to

- strengthen baby’s muscles & boost baby’s balance, posture and stability, to help them reach new milestones

- nurture baby’s natural growth and curiosity about the world and how they interact with it, encouraging baby to move freely & learn about the surroundings safely, with the help of the senses

- boost brain development & improve sleep

- give you the knowledge, tools and resources you need to confidently navigate your baby's development - it empowers parents of 6 to 12-month-old babies to become architects of their baby's development.

 

SUBJECTS COVERED:

WEEK 1: Laying the Foundation for Movement

  • Understand baby’s strong inclination for movement exploration; in the light of Montessori theory

  • The secrets behind setting up a safe and stimulating environment that encourages baby's movement exploration

  •  Learn how to boost core strength, improve motor skills, and lay the groundwork for future movement milestones.
     

WEEK 2: Nurturing Fine and Gross Motor Skills

  • Explore how baby refines their hand-eye coordination and grasping skills & get practical ideas for incorporating age-appropriate activities

  • Major gross motor milestones that typically occur between 6-12 months and how these milestones contribute to overall physical and cognitive development of baby

  • Ideas for sensory-rich activities that encourage babies to explore different textures, sounds, and spatial arrangements

WEEK 3: Encouraging Independence through Movement

  • The connection between movement, cognitive development, and problem-solving skills

  • Strategies for allowing baby to explore movement at their own pace, encouraging them to problem-solve and discover their physical capabilities independently.

WEEK 4: : Movement's Impact on Future Skills and Well-being

  • Cognitive development through movement: How movement experiences support brain development, enhance cognitive skills, and lay the foundation for future learning abilities.

  • Emotional and social development: The role of movement in building emotional regulation, self-esteem, and social skills. Discover how you can support their baby's emotional growth through movement-related interactions.

  • Long-term benefits of movement: How early movement experiences correlate with the development of skills like concentration, problem-solving, and creativity; and the potential impact on future academic success and overall well-being.

  • Building a movement-rich routine: Learn how to integrate movement-rich activities into your daily routine.

Imagine your baby exploring a specially designed "yes-space" where every corner invites growth and discovery. With gentle guidance, you'll help your baby conquer soft obstacles, crawl through tunnels, and navigate a baby parkour and gym. These exhilarating activities do more than build muscles – they forge neural pathways, boosting brain development, and confidence.

During our interactive sessions, together with baby, you will discover the world through movement and all the senses.

Put those crawling, scooting and cruising skills to the test and become a confident mover and shaker! Because after all, body confidence in our babies translates into a strong character, stamina and lifelong learning & curiosity.

By giving baby the possibility:

-- to move freely in a carefully designed "yes-space",
-- to explore their surroundings in an unhindered way,
-- by allowing them to follow their natural curiosity and activate their senses,
you are helping baby boost their brain development, social skills, linguistic abilities and enabling baby to sleep better too! Join this class (limited to only 4 participants) and set foundations for your baby’s next milestones!
