TODDLER CLUB – workshops for Parents
Learning to properly care for an infant:
- Carrying, feeding and bathing positions
- Games, types of toys
- Truths and myths of care (walkers, jumpers, carriers, etc.)
- Asymmetry prophylaxis
- Simple exercises and games for parents
- Kinesiotaping (therapeutic taping) and supportive therapies.
Making the parents aware of what the proper development of the child looks like, what are disturbing behaviours and what should be paid attention to
- Shantal’s massage for babies – training for parents and guardians
- Red flags in development
- Learning proper care (Handling)
During everyday care (lifting / putting down, carrying, feeding, changing, dressing / undressing, bathing, PLAYING), we provide the child with many sensorimotor experiences that influence the development of his new skills, a sense of security, comfort and peace. The developing child (correctly or incorrectly), feeling each movement and emotions of the parents, uses the experience gained for further development.
Therefore, it is very important to carry out all these activities calmly, slowly, smoothly and in such a way as to provide the child with the correct sensorimotor experiences both during care and play.
We offer you the training of proper care for all babies, especially those up to 6 months of age. The number of our meetings will depend on how quickly you learn proper care and you will feel confident that you can do it well with your children.
