Mommy & Me: 6-12 months
This class is for 6-12 month old babies and their mommies. It meets once a week for 90 minutes each week at 730 11th Street in Hermosa Beach. Each session of classes is 8 weeks long.
The intention for this class is to create a lively and supportive environment in which you and your baby make life-long friends, all while learning some tricks of the trade from your instructor as well as from one another.
We will start each class with some playtime for our busy 6-12 month old babies. The moms will have a chance to talk with one another while the babies explore and play with developmentally appropriate materials. Next, we sing a couple of fun songs with the babies and learn some new baby signs. Next, mommies will hear the week's top tips: a useful baby product, quick and easy recipe, and recommended parenting book. Every week, moms will also learn a new developmental play activity to try with their baby or developmental tip/milestone to be aware of. We also have a set calendar for each session with either a topic presentation & discussion or an expert guest speaker. Topics, tips, and guest speakers are different each session so that moms can continue to enroll in Nest classes throughout baby's toddler years without being exposed to repetitive material.
We end with "check in" time to ask questions of each another and discuss parenting issues that have come up throughout the week... your baby's sleep schedule or lack thereof, how and when to create a routine, ways to stimulate your baby throughout the day, the joys of teething, introducing solids, how to spot growth spurts and much more!
We can't wait to meet you and your little one in class!
