Dec 28, 2014 10:32AM
Feldenkrais and Child’s Space practitioner Donna Bervinchak, the owner of Improving Through Movement, will teach three CHILD’SPACE courses lasting six weeks each beginning January 20, at Susquehanna Dance Center, in Mountville. Tummy Time Fun Class will be offered at 10 a.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and a Creeping & Crawling class is scheduled at 11 a.m. on Wednesdays. Both classes teach parents to support development through movement and touch.
During the Tummy Time Fun class, parents of babies ages 3 to 6 months (older non-crawlers also welcome) will discover touch and movement that turns tummy time into fun time and increase babies’ comfort in the position. While bonding with their caregivers, babies will learn how to roll from back to belly, bear weight on their forearms, grasp toys and use both hands, lift their head while on their bellies and improve face-to-face interactions.
Open to parents and babies ages 6 to 11 months and older non-walkers, the Creeping & Crawling class teaches parents to touch and move their babies to improve creeping on the belly, crawling, rolling to a sitting position, balancing, climbing, kneeling, standing, face-to-face interactions, grasping, letting go of objects and bonding with caregivers.
