MOVE WITH ME
Empowering babies and parents from birth to independent walking
The Move with Me classes and workshops are based on elements of the Feldenkrais Method and the Child'Space Method. The aim of the series is to guide parents in clarifying their understanding of their baby's development so that they are able to facilitate and support the wonderful journey of learning that takes place from birth to independent walking.
Parents will learn more about all aspects of their baby's development including: movement, communication, interaction and development of the sense of self. Through being guided to observe, support and facilitate the learning that is taking place, parents will more clearly understand and connect with their baby in a most intuitive way. They will gain increased confidence in the way that they handle, settle, communicate and interact with their baby.
Babies will receive all of the stimulation their developing systems need during this critical period of learning. Through this process, they will become self-confident, secure and autonomous.
Most importantly your child will feel appreciated, respected and supported in all stages of their learning. This is a wonderful foundation from which all experiences in life will flourish.
Move with Me classes and workshops are fun, interactive, relaxed and enjoyable. Babies are welcome to come with their mother, father, grandparent or carer (or any combination, provided there is room!).
Weekly Classes are for 1 hour duration and are $160 for a block of 8 classes
There are 2 groups based on where your baby is at developmentally and this is not age but stage-related.
1. 'Pre-Crawlers' - babies are welcome from around 6 - 8 weeks until they begin to be on the move.
2. 'On the Move' - babies are welcome from the 'on the move' stage until they are walking independently.
Private Health rebates can be claimed where applicable.
