Baby and Me is an introduction to sensory experiences, process art, messy play, and music. This class is designed specifically for babies age 6+ months and their vaccinated caregivers. This is a time for parents to connect with each other and their babies. This 60-minute class is broken up into two parts; Circle Time and Fun Time.
Circle Time (30 mins): We begin in the shade of the big elm tree where we share songs and conversation. We carefully choose songs that help caregivers connect with their babies, and discuss the topics that naturally arise.
Fun Time (30 mins): We then invite everyone to engage in a process art experience where the babies are introduced to a large canvas with space for them to make all of their own marks with non-toxic materials. We will be getting very messy and having a lot of fun!
The children will then have an opportunity to explore the water table or a fine or gross motor activity and a sensory material in our shady yard while we get to know our new friends. These experiences are carefully designed with the safety of your baby in mind. We end every Baby and Me class with bubbles while we change and get dry together. Meryl is also available to talk with you one-on-one about any parenting questions you might have.
