Lil’ Bugs (4-7 months) 30 min class
In this class parents and caregivers will be able to develop an important bond with the baby. Lil’ Bugs class structure allows the development of healthy and loving communication between baby and caregiver by singing songs and using lots of eye to eye contact as well as use of loving and caring touch. This class will introduce new objects and different textures to the baby to be able to stimulate their senses, we will also focus on making babies aware of their different body parts by using dynamic games and exploration of new movement. It is important at this stage to encourage the activities and exercises that will promote muscle strength on our baby’s core, back, neck, arms and legs in order to help them move forward into their next stage.
Caterpillars (8-11 months) 30 min class
Infants at this age are eager explorers. They move quickly and can get around by crawling, scooting or even walking at this point. It is important to continue to strengthen the parent and child’s bond, building trust, support and healthy independence. In this class the baby will develop coordination using tools that will encourage crawling or crawling it self. We will introduce the concept of listening, observe, imitate, repeat and focus by talking to the baby, singing and dancing together. On this stage we will start to introduce emotions as we dance.
