Natural Movement Development for Babies

Dates to be announced soon…


During the first year of your baby’s life, movement affects the cognitive, emotional and physical well-being of your child and of the adult your child will become. From the earliest stages of development in the womb, through the birth process, to rolling, crawling and walking, children move through a range of patterns that create their ability to sense, perceive and act in the world. Through observation, movement, touch and play we follow your baby’s growing curiosity and learn useful information about natural movement patterns that encourage optimal brain and body development.
