Group Child’Space sessions are a unique, interactive and joyful program for babies and their parents or caregivers. Parents learn touch, song and hands-on movement techniques to support infant development. This helps parents bond with and attune to their baby, facilitating optimal attachment.
These group sessions are run in a series from birth to independent walking and beyond relative to the developmental stage that your child is in.
Pre-Crawlers: (from 6 weeks)
This class is for babies from 6 weeks of age and up to babies who are beginning to be on the move. We will explore tummy time solutions, rolling, reaching and more.
On The Move: (crawlers and cruisers)
This class is for babies who are beginning to pivot, creep or crawl and are on the move. We will explore variations of sitting, movement transitions and moving towards pulling to stand, standing and cruising.
Toddlers: (walking up to age 3)
In this group toddlers will learn to build on greater movement challenges such as
running, jumping, balancing and climbing whilst revisiting the full repertoire of movement. Strength, coordination, timing and balance are a focus as the building blocks for more complex sensori-motor skills related to school readiness.
