Some Of The Benefits

  • Provides a Foundation

    Child’Space lessons provide a foundation for parents to develop intuition and trust their judgment in relating to their babies.

  • Teaches Parents

    Child’Space guides parents in the language of early development, demonstrating how speech, facial expression, touch, movement, rhythm and song can help a baby by stimulating primary developmental pathways.

  • A Unique Perspective

    Learning about activities relevant to their baby’s current development helps parents support the child’s growing abilities.

  • Empowers Baby & Parents

    Child’Space teaches parents how to provide the missing ingredients for babies learning to roll, crawl, sit and stand in a way that empowers both the baby and the parents.

  • Supports Development

    Babies develop better when each problem a baby faces is addressed as it arises. Leaving issues unaddressed for a long period can be hard on babies psychologically, and can lead to patterns of avoidance or compensation.

  • Develops Independence & Confidence

    By knowing when to help and when to let their babies solve problems for themselves, parents encourage their children to develop independence and self confidence.

  • Enriches Relationships

    By facilitating parents’ involvement in their babies’ early learning, Child’Space enriches the relationship, and increases parental confidence.

  • Body Mapping

    Babies’ abilities to balance themselves, to move and even to speak and think can improve dramatically as a result of their being able to feel their own body parts more clearly.
