Has anyone ever thought what we do in our classes for 6-9 month old babies?

In the “Babes” group (6-9 months), we concentrate on the following activities 

•Eye muscle exercises

•Audio stimulation

•Vestibular stimulation

•Fine motor skills – letting go, grasp, wrist movements

•Gross motor co-ordination and postural development

  1. Rolling – encouraging active involvement of the babes
  2. Development of greater strength and endurance in tummy lying, to prepare for the milestone of creeping and crawling
  3. Sitting - Developing core strength and sitting balance. Moving in and out of the sitting position to reach in all directions and across the body mid-line.

•Using balls, rollers, wedges and other equipment to experience the pleasure of body awareness and moving in space. 

•Exploring textures / Sensory Texture play 

*Playing with a variety of textured objects and ‘feels’, to promote sensory awareness, fine motor skill, body awareness and creativity

*Movement to music

*Musical instruments which require shaking and banging, to develop the shoulder girdle and the sense of rhythm.

*Action Songs to link the words with meaning and body movement, and to develop the pleasure of music.

•Hand Massage 

•And lets not forget, we have LOADS of FUN!!
