Active Baby

The Active Baby and You two-hour training is aimed at professionals working with the youngest of our children. It focuses on the movement and well-being of children from 0 – 18 months looking at development and ways in which we can support and nurture not only the babies in our care, but also the physical activity and well-being of the adults who care for and educate them.

The course will take part in two hours face to face.


Topics covered include:

  • Nurturing physical development
  • Physical activity guidelines
  • Floor play (tummy, side, and back play)
  • Body and movement fascinations
  • The senses
  • Crossing the midlines
  • Movement talks
  • Low stimulation, movement and rest.
