?This series of six, 45-minute, dynamic, instructional classes provide theory and play activities to promote development during baby's first year of life. Parents will learn the importance and influence that the sensory system has on your baby’s development. You will be able to enhance your baby’s
development with your awareness of physical milestones during playtime, and will learn how to protect your joints to avoid wrist and back pain while caring for your baby. Finally, you will meet other parents while learning, having fun and enjoying time with your new baby.
About the teacher: Grow With Me™ was created, and is taught, by Tammi Stein, a Pediatric Occupational Therapist with over 25 years of therapy experience and mother of two children.
Enhance baby’s developmental milestones through play activities with a pediatric occupational therapist. While babies learn head/neck control, rolling, arm strengthening, sitting and tummy strengthening, parents learn how to protect their joints and avoid wrist and back pain while caring for their child.
Review the importance of the sensory systems in baby’s playtime. This class will address developmental milestones and play activities including: crawling, walking, fine motor coordination, sign language, cognitive and social/emotional growth.
Sensory activities encourage exploration and facilitate learning organically. This program will provide your toddler with a sense of self as they grow and develop in the warm and nurturing environment that the Beth El Early Learning Center provides. A strong foundation will be set for these young toddlers as they learn to share, play cooperatively and respect their peers through stories, songs, music, art and movement.
