I have learned through parents that it is hard to find age appropriate classes for babies. One parent asked if I would be interested in teaching a group of babies (9-12 months) at her place, and she would gather a group of interested Moms. I thought it would be a great idea!
I will be starting the 4th class next week, and the program have been very successful. One Mom was really pleased with the age-appropriate activities that are catered to her 9 month old son. She has attended a class that ranged from 9 -24 months instead. Another Mom loved the idea of her daughter being around and / or interacting with other babies her age. Moms also learn new activities that could be played at home with their darlings.
The classes are held at a parent’s home on a weekly basis. The parent invites some friends over that is similar in age, just like a play date.
BABY & ME EXPLORATION PROGRAM (9 – 12 months)
The class will engage in activities to promote various developmental skills such as physical, social, language, and fine motor. Babies with the assistance of an adult will learn through play. They will work on building lower and upper body strength through squatting and crawling. The class will participate in singing songs, mirror play, listening and looking at story book, and making art! The class will have both babies and adults smiling!
BABY & ME EXPLORATION PROGRAM 2 (13- 16, 17 – 20months)
The class will participate in similar activities as stated above, except the children will be more engaged independently. At this age, children will enjoy singing along (words) and moving to songs, placing objects in and pulling objects out of a bag. They will love playing hide and find the ball,
and learning to recognize themselves when looking at a mirror. The class will have fun making art using playdo and paint!!! All of these activities will stimulate their senses.
