Working Mommy & Me: 0-12 months
This class is for 0-12 month old babies and their mommies. It meets one evening 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.
Although you don't need to be a working mom to sign up for our "Working Mama" class, during this class we will discuss parenting challenges unique to the working mom in addition to the challenges and questions that every mom experiences.
We will start each class with some unstructured playtime so that the babies have the chance to explore and play with some developmentally appropriate materials while the mommies chat! Next, we will 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!
