A graphical outline of the foundations of learning
We all aspire for our children to develop to their full potential and to reach maturity with a healthy set of higher level skills. It is useful in the early years to be aware, however, of the fundamental development of foundation skills that needs to take place at appropriate ages in order to allow those more advanced learning skills to flourish later.www.babycollege.co.uk How can Baby College Help?
Baby College classes are designed to empower parents with awareness and knowledge about that important early development and with some ideas and tools to help support their child in the best way they can.
The infographic here shows a lovely graphical representation of how the foundations need to be built upon in the correct order to achieve those aims. It shows the importance of areas such as Reflexes and Vestibular that we are perhaps unaware of and somewhat take for granted.
At our core Baby College classes are a total developmental work out for your baby: physical, neurological, communication and cognitive. A series of repetitive, gentle physical exercises help mature the baby’s balance system and replace his or her infant reflexes. Language and communication skills are explored; music and listening are encouraged, as are fun sensory games such as the parachute play. By promoting eye contact, sensory stimulation and an understanding of their child’s needs, the bond between parent and child will be reinforced. In addition, the part of the brain responsible for experiencing and expressing emotion develops from the way in which parents interact with their baby.
So you can see that we help develop the building blocks necessary for your baby to form a strong and secure foundation for their subsequent learning.
