littleBEings 1 (for new toddlers)
After completing babyBEings Part 3 & 4, which takes approximately a year, those that can continue move to Friday afternoon classes for 2 terms at littleBEings 1. The toddlers in this range from 16-20 months in age on average
littleBEings 2 (for terrific toddlers!)
This is our Friday morning class, which is from 9.30am - 12pm and is for toddlers aged from approx 18 months through to 2/2.5 years of age.
This is the time when the child's WILLPOWER is developing and often gets referred to as the 'terrible twos' stage. We hold workshops and give guidance through discussion and demonstration in class, to support parents in understanding the importance of the child's developing willpower. We endeavour to see that our toddlers are terrific and can find this naturally flows on from our babyBEings practice of seeing that the baby is capable.
Parents learn about the many natural 'urges' (innate drives) a toddler has and needs in order to learn and grow. These include such things as: collecting, posting, enclosing, ordering, climbing, contructing and de-constructing. Just knowing about these can help a parent understand their child better, leading to less 'misunderstanding' and increased harmony in the relationship.
NATUREBEINGS - We regularly take trips to a local nature reserve (Cullen Crescent)with this class, and anyone from the other classes is also welcome to join us. It is our hope that by providing these trips parents will see the value in nature play and find the time and desire to provide of these experiences for their child (and themselves).
