Nurture and play

Toddler with Toys

Welcome

Welcome and thank you for joining me for our online  live zoom and recorded nurture and play classes. 

Links to join classes live on zoom will be listed below, then recorded and added so you can watch anytime. 

We will need different props each week, but these will be things you have at home. 

Throughout these sessions , 

there are activities to support visual development, introduction of textures, concentration, motor skills, balance,

bilateral co-ordination and so much more! 

As well as links to bonus play ideas and blogs to support your play at home. 

These activities are suitable from newborn to active babies and can be adapted for each age range.

Safety guidelines

These activities are suggestions of how to engage your baby in play. They need to be carried out with adult supervision and you taking full responsibility for your baby during play. Please ensure that your little one is supervised with the toy at all times. Keep your little one in arms reach and eye sight when they are playing.

Nurture jounral 

 

I believe that looking after mum, is just as important as looking after baby. I've created this journal just for you.

Journaling can be a wonderful way to note your thoughts, feelings, worries and stresses, especially during this transformational time of motherhood. My nurture journal is designed to help you think about the new you as a mum and the old you pre baby too.

Music 

 

Music is a really important part of my sessions, we use music during the guided play. I've listed the links for each recording below, so you can listen to the songs anytime. 

Bonus content 

I've included links to play ideas and videos to help support you and your babies play ! 

 The links below are full of play suggestions, ideas on activities you can do at home, repeat them, choose your favourites, miss a day, work around your family, there is no strict way to play.

Most importantly have fun!
