Movement & Play (4 months plus)
Facilitator: Joanie Bartels-MacDonald
In this fun and interactive session, we will do a quick review of Baby& You Development to assess any challenges or problems and then pick up with more advanced Rolling techniques and games to play to encourage rolling in both directions. We will discuss all the different ways babies become mobile and then move on to Crawling exercises and games followed by Sitting Up and any problems to look out for. We’ll use songs, rhymes, finger-plays and balls for Upper Body, Hand and Fingers development as well as crossing the mid-line and then move on to Kicking and Bouncing to strengthen the legs. Parents will be encouraged to participate in Swinging, Spinning and Dancing activities, including The Hokey Pokey!
Please dress comfortably and bring a baby blanket.
