Bright Babies (2 – 12 m) – Online (Pre-recorded)
Welcome to our virtual baby classes! Join us for educational seminars and music and movement with your baby!
How does it work?
Each Monday morning we will email you two videos. You can view them anytime during the week as many times as you like. We know how nap schedules and mealtimes go, so feel free to watch the videos in whatever chunks of time work best for you and your family!
The first video will be a 20-minute presentation from Melanie Olorenshaw, M.Sc. (Applied Psychology) and founder of Brilliant Beginnings, covering a different topic on infant development each week.
The second video will be 20 minutes of fun songs and activities you can replicate with your baby. This is for you to watch rather than your baby. You imitate our actions and sign with us to your baby. Remember — YOU are your baby’s most important and impactful teacher, and they don’t need screen time!
The following topics will be discussed in order:
- How Do Babies Develop?
- Early Language Development
- Babies and Television: Why to Avoid it!
- Attachment & Social/Emotional Development
- Gross Motor Development
- Fine Motor Development
- Infant Sleep
- Baby Sign Language
- Literacy Development
- Early Numerical Development
The theme-based songs will change each week (except the hello and goodbye songs). There will also be a link with song lyrics and additional activities to keep the fun beyond the 20 minutes of guidance the video provides. You will be given instructions each week for what household supplies you’ll need for that theme. We do recommend you have two maracas or shakers (homemade or purchase here), as these are favorites of all ages of children who attend our classes. We promise your little one will love them and use them often beyond their virtual class participation!
Note: If you sign up online with prorated fees (fewer than 10 weeks) you will start on the topic that corresponds to that week. For example if you pay for seven weeks online, you will join us on ‘4. Attachment & Social/Emotional Development‘ week.
Cost: $100/10 weekly pre-recorded classes
