The first year of life is crucial in the development of a child, and the adult the child will eventually become. During this time, an infant is forming the patterns of movement, perception, and organization of information on which it will build its relationships to itself, others and the world. Facilitating development during this time can greatly enhance a child’s physical, emotional and intellectual abilities.
This workshop will explore essential principles of a baby’s movement and perceptual development, focusing on the first 12 months of development with special focus on topics particular to newborns through 7 months of age. The workshop will integrate:
Newborns - 3 Months
12:30-1:15 Observation & Facilitation
1:30-2:45 Exploration of Developmental Skills
4- 7.5 Months
4:15-5:00 Observation & Facilitation
5:15-6:30 Exploration of Developmental Skills
“The greatest gifts we can give a child are a sense of physical and emotional well-being, a sense of comfort and bonding, the joy of being, curiosity, confidence, the ability to relate to others, and organizational and problem-solving skills” - Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen
