Child Development and Care

As your child grows, you need to take care of his developmental and emotional needs. We are here to support you and provide fun, stimulating activities that will enable you do that.

In partnership with parents, our very own specialist early years educator will create a curriculum specifically for your child at home. Suitable for pre-school children, or for young children after nursery in the afternoon, the curriculum will incorporate activities suitable for the age of your child, such as arts and crafts, guided play and exploring the world around him. Our childcare team will help enable your child to develop his motor and sensory skills, and make the most out of playtime at home. Read more

At Babies and Beyond we have our own specialist early years educator, who works alongside our childcare nurses to deliver a fun curriculum for your child at home, to help him work towards the following early learning goals:

Personal, social and emotional development: Activities are designed to develop cooperative play, turn-taking, the confidence to try new activities, and how to manage feelings and behaviour.

Communication and language development: We will focus on listening and responding to stories and events, and encourage your child to express himself effectively, thereby developing speech and storytelling skills.

Physical development in all its forms: We will focus on how to use pencils and other tools for activities such as mark-making, as well as helping your child develop the gross motor skills needed to play with larger toys and materials.

Literacy development: We love to read, and aim to nurture that same of love of reading with your child by sharing lots of stories and rhymes together.

Mathematical development: We make number recognition and counting fun with a variety of games and activities, which enable your child to develop their numeracy skills.

Understanding of the world: We love to educate the children in our care about the differences between people and places nearby and further afield.

Expressive arts and designs: Be prepared to have music and merriment in your home! Together with your child we will sing, make music, dance, act out role-plays, dress up and get messy with lots of art, craft and imaginative play.

Our Child Development curriculum is based on the early learning goals from the UK, and will be adapted to cater for the developmental needs of each child in our care.

Sleep Workshop

Sleep is one of nature’s greatest miracles but it’s often only when we experience a lack of sleep or a sleep-related issue that we truly learn to appreciate it!

Sleep has the power to restore and rejuvenate, whilst letting both body and mind grow. For your baby, each sleep - even if it’s a few hours at a time - is fundamental for both psychological and physiological development. It is very important for parents to understand the sleep cycle of a newborn baby, to help your baby benefit from the precious power of sleep, and to keep the whole family performing at an optimum level of health. It can be very overwhelming when a parent starts to feel “sleep-deprived”, or if your baby doesn’t seem to be sleeping well. We are here to help. Read more

At Babies and Beyond we are proud to have certified Sleep Consultants as core members of our team whose aim is to inform and empower you to manage your baby’s sleep. This will in turn enable you, as parents, to confidently establish a healthy sleep routine.

We will educate you on the science behind sleep, and will teach you practical ways to develop a positive, calm and restorative sleep environment for you and your child.

Over the course of our four-week workshop, we will share evidence-based techniques and support you with practical and hands-on care. We will help you with the transition from birth to babyhood and beyond, to set up healthy, permanent sleep habits to ensure your baby benefits from happy, nurturing and good quality rest. And – just as importantly – our aim is to help you sleep better too!

In our workshops we will cover the following topics:

  • How to encourage positive sleep-shaping habits for your newborn
  • How to develop a routine that promotes the best quality sleep for your newborn and you
  • How to avoid creating “bad” sleeping habits
  • “Safe” sleeping
  • How to help your baby understand the difference between night and day
  • How sleep patterns change as your baby grows and develops
  • How to establish and maintain healthy sleep foundations for life

We know that each baby and family is unique. After careful consultation with you, we will advise a bespoke approach that reflects your parenting style and family dynamics, your child's developmental stage and age, emotional and dietary needs, as well as any medical conditions. Throughout our workshops we aim to build a personal relationship with you and your family, so that we can offer you on-going guidance and support.

By developing your understanding of the science of sleep and by sharing careful and gentle methods to help your baby maximize his sleep, we will help you and your family get as much rest as possible. Peaceful nights and positive starts to each day are within your reach - we will help you achieve them!

Please call us to book your place in the Sleep Workshop.

Baby Massage Workshop

The loving touch of your hands on your baby’s skin promotes good health, wellbeing and a calmer temperament for both parent and child. Our experts are accredited to teach you a safe and nurturing technique to enable a positive bonding and health-giving experience. Read more

Baby massage is one of the most wonderful ways that you can bond and relax with your child. By using the correct technique of baby massage, you can help your baby overcome colic, constipation, crying and fussiness, as well as helping her to sleep more peacefully. The warmth of your hands and your loving touch stimulate your baby’s central nervous system through the massage process. As a result, your baby releases serotonin - a “feel-good” chemical - which helps your baby’s heart rate to slow down and to fight any feelings of tension or anxiety.

Baby massage is also good for parents. Both mom and dad can create a powerful emotional connection with your baby by literally passing on not only your love and affection, but also a sense of protection and safety.

Our baby massage courses are led by licensed, accredited experts. We offer group or private courses.

Please contact us to discuss the best option for you and your baby.

We will empower you to relax deeply, let go of fear and ultimately connect with your natural birthing instinct.
