RHYTHM KIDS - suitable for babies 3 MONTHS OLD to PRE-WALKING stage - is a baby exercise programme which promotes baby’s love of movement whilst developing pre-verbal language.  The course helps baby to explore different types of movement, using exercises which help to train the senses to work together to support posture, balance and coordination, necessary for skills like rolling, sitting, crawling and walking.  By singing nursery rhymes, whilst doing the exercises, we enhance baby's memory and language skills.  Weekly Exploratory Play, using scarves; puppets and instruments allows us to explore our baby's development and understand how it can be promoted at different stages.  Designed by Touchlearn International Ltd, this course is an ideal follow-on course from Infant Massage for the growing baby, although can be attended without having completed an Infant Massage course previously. 

COURSES RUNNING in 2017 - start January; March and May/June

INFANT MASSAGE - suitable for babies from BIRTH to PRE-CRAWLING stage - promotes bonding and attachment between parent and baby and can also help with minor baby ailments, such as colic; trapped wind; constipation; teething and colds. Designed by the IAIM, this course is specifically designed for infants using Indian Massage; Swedish Massage; Yoga and Reflexology principles and involves parents lovingly stroking your baby, taking time to communicate verbally and non-verbally with them so that they feel loved, valued and respected.  As Vimala McClure, the founder of the IAIM states,"Massaging your baby simply communicates love, releases tension and helps your understand your baby's needs.  The fact that it is fun is a wonderful added benefit."  Further details about the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM) & the IAIM Infant Massage course can be found at www.iaimbabymassage.co.uk

'Come relax & have fun with your little one' is the aim of my 'Bonding With Baby' Courses! Courses are non-judgmental, supportive and relaxing for parents to attend and led by your baby - I am the instructor; parents are the experts and the baby is our teacher! 'Infant Massage' and 'Rhythm Kids' are parent-based education programmes - teaching parents skills which develop over the 6 week course, enhancing the time we spend with our baby - for life!


EACH COURSE INCLUDES:

  • 6 weekly 1.5 hour sessions, with Infant Massage Strokes (baby massage oil provided) or Rhythm Kids Exercises built up weekly, at a pace that is right for your baby, accompanied by practice at home to become confident in what we are learning and in the handling of baby and to develop a bond with your baby that will last a lifetime!
  • Parent Handbook provided for you to take home, relevant & local parenting information provided to support learning in weekly sessions & Certificate on completion of courses.
  • Weekly sessions start with 15 minutes of 'settle-in' time - allowing us all time to relax before we start. Sessions end with discussions over refreshments, allowing time to get to know each other - making friendships that may last well beyond the 6 week course!​
