Infants & Parents


Infant Development Classes

FREE TRIAL FOR ALL FIRST TIME PARTICIPANTS; CALL TO RSVP

In these fun and practical classes taught by Child'Space practitioner Kira Charles, you will learn techniques for nurturing your baby’s development and sense of self through touch, movement, facial expression, rhythm and song.  Although development during your baby’s first year may seem to happen of its own accord, you can help your child “connect the dots” in many ways. You will learn what to expect from your baby at each stage of development, how to engage your baby’s curiosity and how to support your baby’s next stage while encouraging the innate joy of discovery. You will also learn answers to your questions about development, find new confidence as a parent, and often notice other positive changes, such as your baby’s improved ability to self-soothe and your own greater creativity when you touch and play with your child.

Testimonials

I took my daughter to a trial class and am amazed how much she developed in the days following. All with the simple exercises taught in one session. She went from only rolling to now army crawling and getting up on all fours. She’s looking ready to crawl and she’s 6 months.
— Anna Mejian
Kira was incredibly aware of each child’s need. She was tuned into the class as a whole as well as the individual baby. Each class I learned simple exercises and ways to work with my son to help him move on to his next milestone. Kira has a wonderful temperament with the babies. She establishes trust with the babies through her gentle and confident approach. My son was crawling up to her and on her at each class. During our months in class, my son transitioned from belly crawling to creeping on all fours and then to standing. I am so grateful for her support and knowledge.

New & Expecting Parent Meet-Up

WEDNESDAY 1-2PM

FREE for Expecting and New Parents with tots ages 0-12mo.

Come join your peers for discussions and support in your journey as a new or expecting parent. 

Max group size 10 families. Drop-In.

"When my daughter was born three years ago, I can remember feeling a spectrum of emotions that I wasn't prepared for despite having read all of the latest mommy-to-be books. I experienced overwhelming joy, exhaustion, love, new mommy fears and loneliness all at once. There was an inevitable detachment from my social circle as none of my friends had kids and I had little knowledge of Mommy groups, parent list-servs or other resources.

My journey through new motherhood has inspired me to do all I can to support first-time and new parents. My goal is to create a support community for new moms and dads. I want you to have a place where you can meet other new parents and share your journey, excitement, stories, and tips."
