“Exploring Early Movement and loving Social Interaction” If this describes your little one then bring them along to the fun-filled world of Social Tots. Once your little one is sitting confidently or just on the move they will want to explore, make friends, and play, play, play! At Social Tots they will find all this and more. With a range of activities on offer at each session, classes help build sensory awareness, encourage movement and build physical and cognitive skills.Each child’s personality is encouraged to shine through, as we bring out their love of play and exploration in ways which will stimulate the development of little bodies and minds. During the 40 minute weekly class, crawlers, early walkers and toddlers will benefit from a structured, but fast paced play environment which builds confidence and concentration, while still allowing plenty of opportunity for them to develop their own creativity, independence and early social skills. What's in a Class Classes include: Movement Activities At Social Tots our developmental movement activities continue to be insired by yoga, but adapted for older babies and toddlers, who will now being able to do some of the movements independently. Benefits of the more dynamic stretches, postures and actions include building strength, co-ordination and gross motor skills as well as providing stimulation for your child's senses and whole body. Circle Time Simple structured activities and songs, including parachute games and bubbles to encourage interaction with other children, explore different concepts, develop early social skills – and to have fun! Multi Sensory Play and Exploration Social Tots love to explore the wide range of sensory play items we bring along each week, and as tunnels, hoops, balls and all sorts of other play equipment are introduced, they get to practise their physical and creative skills too. Baby Sign Language Using songs, rhymes and instruments, we learn and practice simple signs and gestures that will help give your baby the means to communicate before and as language emerges.

Discovery Tots (2mth - 9mth)

Chineham Village Hall

8 weeks to active crawling “For Babies who Love to Learn using their Whole Body and all their Senses” For a fun, interactive play session that you and your baby will both enjoy come and join us at Discovery Tots. Here, we introduce a whole range of activities and techniques to help you and your baby get more out of your play times in ways that are not only beneficial for baby’s development, but also lots of fun. The programme recognises that babies learn with their whole body and all their senses, and each 40 minute class is filled with lots of different experiences to stimulate, delight and encourage development in a relaxed, loving and fun environment. Even at such a young age a structured playtime, which the classes provide, helps a child to feel secure, giving the confidence to explore, learn and grow, making development more rapid and learning more fun. It is also a great place to start building social skills, first by watching and later through interaction with the other babies. Through the classes babies will develop and improve; Body awareness and gross motor skills. The functions of the brain through a wide range of stimulus for all the senses. Social awareness through the group environment. Communication skills through the use of sign language, songs and rhymes Bonding between parent and child. Plus you will be introduced to simple songs and activities that can be carried on at home to continue the learning and development process. Each class consists of a number of activities including: Baby Yoga, Movement and Music Combining stretches, postures and movement to provide stimulation for baby’s body and mind, yoga based movement is a great way to connect and have fun together. Nursery rhymes and simple action songs help to add to the enjoyment and further stimulate the senses. Music also helps to introduce rhythm and rhyme to your baby, an important part of speech development. Multi Sensory Play Watch your baby’s delight as we play with a wide variety of fun objects, from ribbons to rice, lights to lemons, bubbles to beach balls and lots more, allowing your baby to use all his or her senses to explore the world. Baby Sign Language Babies have the desire to communicate with you long before they develop the ability to speak, and learning to use sign language is one way in which they can let you know what is on their mind from just a few months old. We will introduce a few simple signs which you and your baby can use to communicate with each other. Each week brings something new, while including elements that are repeated, which your baby will come to recognise and respond to. A whole world of love, laughter and learning.
