Movement is a very important foundation for young children’s learning, health and well-being. Dancing with babies is not only a lovely thing to do together but it also supports a baby’s natural drive to move freely, without stress or restriction.

By using mirrors and other reflective surfaces to explore how our limbs and body parts work, we can provide a fabulous opportunity for children to respond to the world they find around them and to communicate their place within it.

This wonderful teaching pack encourages the practitioner to follow the baby’s lead to see how they make connections between what they know, what they can do with their bodies, and how the world works around them. It’s also a lot of fun!
