Baby Boo-Bears is a multi- sensory themed class. For babies of all ages from newborn to four years.
We explore the world through our themed sessions. One day we are going to the beach, the next we are having our very own sports day. No two sessions are the same.
We start our sessions with our Teddy bear warm-up and stretching songs. To get all those muscles warmed up and ready for class. Followed by our baby yoga or music and movement songs. Helping to develop our balance, spatial awareness, and sense of distance.
We use Makaton signing in class, this supports the signs which are used in most nursery and primary schools. Giving little ones a helping hand in their communication and speech development.
Free play is hugely important and a big part of our Baby Boo-Bear sessions. This helps build confidence when exploring the world, supports their independence, and boosts their social skills.
Each class is designed to inspire little ones to explore the world in a safe space. Building confidence and igniting their imaginations.
