Play ~ Create ~ Connect
This group is for pre-walking babies. This group will consist of an unstructured playtime for your infant to explore and test out their new movement abilities. Special time will be dedicated for the observation of your baby as they engage in child-directed play in a nourishing and open ended environment. Your baby will encounter a safe but challenging environment to practice reaching, grasping, rolling, pushing up, crawling, standing and cruising. You will be encouraged to lovingly hold space for your child as they play and discover. Taking a quiet moment to sit back and just watch allows your child to show you who they are and how they learn through their play. This practice also helps us to slow down and tune in to what our babies are doing so that we may meet them where they are at developmentally. As we step back and give our babies the simple gift of unhurried time and space they will start to engage in independent problem solving, experimentation, and the imitation of adult and peer actions.
Group will begin with the serving of coffee or tea for parents while children will be given time to play freely and explore while parents observe and engage in relevant parenting discussions topics such as sharing, stages of development, setting limits, language development, and more. The group will conclude with an age appropriate circle time consisting of songs and movement that celebrate nature and the current season of the year.
