Baby Playdates

WEDNESDAY 1:15-2:15PM

beginning 1/9

Encouraging your baby to interact with others isn't just fun- its an important developmental tool. Meet your peers, swap stories and expose your tot to meaningful social experiences in a safe comfortable space!

 

Infant Development Classes

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.
— Anna Hindell & Baby Jonah
