EXCITING activity classes for babies and toddlers will be commencing in Portadown Town Hall, Portadown today (Friday) for eight weeks. The classes are the perfect opportunity for Portadown parents to learn new skills while socializing with other parents who have little ones of similar ages.
Wee Signers classes are great fun and are suitable for babies from around 3 months to 18 months. There is a mixture of nursery rhymes, songs, puppets, multi-sensory activities like balloons and bubbles, movement, a story and a lovely relaxation time at the end. Simple practical signs like ‘change nappy’ and ‘milk’ are taught; these have been shown to help reduce non verbal babies’ frustration as they learn to communicate what they want without crying. Baby signing has been popularized by children’s television presenter Mr Tumble and research has shown that children who signed as babies have 50 more spoken words in their vocabularies by the age of two than children who didn’t sign.
For toddlers 18 months and onwards an entertaining, educational and interactive Wonder Kids class will be held from 11-12pm.
Wonder Kids is designed to stimulate language development and promote creativity and cognitive learning. Each week a new theme is covered and the children play games, sing songs, make crafts, dance, listen to stories, interact with puppets and so much more.
