Crawling & Crunching Course Topics


Having a mobile infant is a whole different ball game! Time has flown by and your baby is starting to explore their environment. This can be a worrying time for parents, as you figure out how to make your house safe while encouraging and supporting this new phase.

Together, we will learn about crawling styles - what is important and how to encourage movement. We talk about ACC recommended home safety, as well as an upgrade to books and toys to stimulate a developing mind. 

It may also be time to start considering Early Childhood Education options too. So, we help you out with advice on how to take the first steps towards this. Hosted by an Early Childhood Education and Movement Consultant.


An informative introduction to stages 3 and 4 of solids based on the latest evidence-based research, and covers fussy eaters, milk requirements, establishing good nutrition and ideas of what foods to give your baby. Hosted by a registered Dietitian and Paediatric Nutrition Specialist.
