Weekly topics:

Week 1: Overview of infant development and intro to the class
Here we talk about the progression of fine motor, floor play, sitting and mobility skill

Week 2: Infant Sleep
Some sleep facts and solutions. Honouring every baby.

Week 3: Sensory & Spaces
Sensory activities and how the environment plays a role in development

Week 4: Play for you and baby
Other things you can do, the balancing act, recommended toys

Week 5: Mealtime with baby
Schedules, positioning, ways to enhance feeding in first year

Week 6: Co-Regulation
Attachment, attunement, temperament (basically self-care, stress management)

Each class we will cover a topic that relates and connects to development— motor, cognitive, social, sensory.  More often than not, we are bombarded with information and pressure to do it all. Walk away with more confidence, calm and connection. This class and group discussions will help simplify your approach with your baby giving you more time,  less worry and permission to have fun while baby plays on the floor.

You will have some time to interact with other parents as well as have some time to practice skills such as tummy time and crawling (depending on where your child is at).

What other parents are saying about Baby Steps: 

“The best part about the program was that I was given both opportunities to learn how to stimulate and play with my baby, and also the freedom to step back and let her explore the world on her own without guilt.” —Mom of two
