Happy New Year! If you’re an expectant or new parent living in or around Halifax looking for great classes to connect with other parents, it’s an absolute must to attend a #NurturedWorkshop. This time of year it’s a warm welcome to 2018 with a fresh listing of events happening in our Nurtured livingroom to help you grow into your role as a parent or keep you and baby bonding and entertained. Winter can be so long!
Don’t miss these new highlights in our classes:
New this year is Art with Children taught by local artist and mother, Lenore Hemming. With a background in early childhood education, Lenore knows how to share the joy and delight in what some parents may only think will be chaotic or messy. Equipped with a multitude of drop cloths, natural paint and other sensory materials, you’ll be ready to dive in to enjoy all the exploration and expression that art encompasses for every age. This is a class not to be missed. There’s also a spot for siblings! Recommended for children aged at least 6-8months and up through preschool. January’s class is full. Registration open for March classes.
New to our Infant Massage classes, a special segment on TummyTime has been integrated into Kylie Field’s already impressive class. As new research shows a direct correlation between nervous system development and time spent playing while in tummy time, Kylie’s class will be sharing the full range of infant massage plus practical ways to make tummy time enjoyable and fun. Parents who have taken Infant Massage share there is much more this class provides to parent skillset. Kylie’s weekly group conversation is engaging and relieving as she draws from a wealth of knowledge as a postpartum doula, lactation consultant and former nurse. February class registration is open and space is still available. Winter, spring and fall classes will be offered in 2018. ***DATE CHANGE*** Start Date is now FEBRUARY 15th.
