6 to 12 Months (babies who sit independently)
Children play at every stage of development. Parents create a learning environment for their child through movement, sensory experiences and play. This lecture and demonstration session will help you learn when and how your older baby discovers physical (gross and fine motor) and cognitive developmental play skills through age appropriate activities and toys which stimulate exploration and interaction. Bring your baby and try a few new play skills.
Class length: 90min.
