Connecting with your Baby in the First Year of life- nourishing your child's creative, confident and rapidly developing mind!
Brain Development 101: Everything you need to know about nourishing your child's creative, confident mind in the first year of life! (0-12M)
Babies in arms (pre-crawlers) welcome to attend.
You've probably heard that your child's brain develops most in the first three years of life, but did you know that more than one million neural connections form per second during this time? During these early years, parents have the amazing opportunity to nurture their child’s growth and development through connected, responsive caregiving. Join Rebecca Walsh, founder and director of Early Childhood Matters, to learn more about the following topics:
· From Routine to Ritual: creating opportunities for bonding, learning, and growth through everyday caregiving tasks like diaper changes, bath time, and feeding times.
· Language development milestones and strategies to encourage language development in the first year of life
· Ideas for playtime activities, Floor Time, and parental engagement strategies to develop the architecture of your child's brain and build connections for lifelong skills like problem solving, self-control, and emotional intelligence.
