Baby Explore

A class made for your smallest – we explore social and physical skills for little ones to broaden their experiences in this world through their senses. Baby Explore will be focused on sensory play and activities that stimulate their senses: touch, smell, taste, movement, balance, sight, and hearing.

This class will provide you with ideas that can be easily incorporated into your everyday home life to encourage creative play and exploration. We welcome children from birth up to crawling – with elements of tummy time, massage and movement and song including a combination of original nursery rhymes incorporating te reo Māori to develop early language skills.

This is a fantastic opportunity to meet and connect with other parents on the same journey.
