COME AND LEARN HOW YOU CAN HELP YOUR BABY’S DEVELOPMENT
Learn simple and effective ways to encourage your baby’s discovery of his body parts.
This helps him feel and sense:
- where his body parts are
- to know that they belong to him
- to sense his body’s boundaries
- to learn how to control and use his hands and feet.
CHILD’SPACE USES MINDFUL AND DIRECTED TOUCH, MOVEMENT, AND VOICE TO FACILITATE LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENTAL PROCESSES.
- It nourishes and integrates the senses: seeing, hearing, sensing and dealing with gravity.
- It creates comfort, wellbeing and pleasure with your baby’s own body.
- It helps define the body boundaries of your baby (who am I? This hand belong to me, this is my foot. I can feel, hear, and see it) and nourishes the sense of self.
- It encourages orientation in relation to
- himself (up, down, forward, backward)
- other people (who is important, who can I trust)
- his surroundings (where’s the window, the door?)
- It develops his sense of balance
- It develops his sense of rhythm and sequence
- It helps him learn to anticipate actions around him (momma takes the bottle and is going to pick me up)
- It supports autonomy in self-initiated movements to reach, to act, to pick up and manipulate objects and to start moving around.
