Space for you and your baby

It's no secret that being a new parent can come with a lot of happiness & a fair share of challenges! 

Adjusting to your new life, new routine (or lack of it...) & new baby can be a daunting task that is sure to raise many questions.

At Space you and your baby will connect with other new parents & their babies as you explore parenting & children's development in a safe, facilitated environment.  Your Space group will meet weekly, giving you & your baby the chance to make real connections during your baby's first year.

You & your baby will explore music & movement, rhymes, books & a variety of play experiences.  You will discover ways to support & extend your baby's learning & development, including ideas & opportunities for play experiences at home. 

You will get to consider different parenting perspectives, perhaps find out some new information, & have some great, facilitated discussions as you discover ways that work for you & your baby.

Topics discussed may include: 

Sleeping & crying

Becoming a parent

Establishing attachment

The beauty of the brain (brain development & early experiences)

Expressing myself (communication & language development)

Treasure baskets, heuristic play & exploration of play

Physical development (fine & big muscle co-ordination)

A sense of me & others (socialisation)
