Join Lizzie and baby Max for this weekly online class for parents, babies and children aged 0-3 years. The class uses creative play, multisensory activities, nurturing parent-child partner exercises, everyday objects found in the home and music from around the globe.
The class has a relaxed format that opens with welcoming everyone and awakening the body and imagination, building towards more energetic movement through creative activities including teacher-guided movement tasks and a series of nurturing partner sequences. It closes with quiet imagery-based relaxation to calm the senses before you move on to the rest of your day.
There is optional social time at the beginning and end of the class to meet and chat to other parents and children.
- The music play list is publicly available on Spotify so that you can repeat activities during the week if the mood takes you!
- If you or your child have any access requirements for the class, Lizzie is very happy to chat to parents privately before or after the class to discuss adaptations.
- Please wear comfortable clothes that you can move about in and find a safe space to participate at home. You may wish to have a cushion and chair to sit on for some activities.
