Motor Development: Basics & Beyond Classes @ Baby + Co.

 

Whether your infant needs help learning to enjoy tummy time or find his way to hands and knees for crawling, these skill specific classes offer a variety of ways to help your baby master motor development.

There are many pieces that go into learning how to sit, crawl and stand. Babies begin working on these components from day one. Even after they learn a skill, they start working on ways to fine tune their movement. This fine tuning helps them master the skill and progress to the next one.

You are welcome to register for as many classes in the series as you wish, regardless of the age of your child.
