Pre-Crawlers I: Under 4m Tummy Time Solutions, Reaching, Rolling and More
Child’Space Method class for the youngest pre-crawling babies from 5 weeks up to 4 months (on their first day of class). In this gentle, joyful class, parents learn to support their baby’s development through touch and movement. A parent’s touch can help babies become more comfortable in many positions including tummy-time and parent/baby interaction can influence how and when a baby discovers new ways of moving, such as reaching and rolling. Parents learn answers to their questions about their baby’s development, find new confidence as a parent, and also notice other positive changes in their babies after learning Child’Space Method, such as reduction of “colic”, improved ability to self-soothe, and improvements with feeding. Note: Occasionally a short version of this class is offered, under the name, “Tummy-Time Solutions”. These classes are similar, but Pre-Crawlers I offers a much more in depth understanding of Child’Space Method. View Class Schedule
Pre-Crawlers II : For 4m and up, Rolling, Pivoting, “Army-Crawling”, Sitting and More
In this class for babies four months and older (on their first day of class), we look at how to support each baby’s learning, through touch, movement and song. Parents and caretakers learn to support and encourage the learning of movements that will become the building blocks for balanced, coordinated sitting, crawling, walking and more.

Child’space NYC offers small classes for infants and young children who would benefit from more individualized attention. It is a wonderful option both for those who receive services through Early Intervention, and for those who were denied services but for whom concerns remain. It can be a helpful additional program for children who are undergoing physical therapy or other therapies. (Child’Space NYC is a privately offered class, and has no connection to the EI program.)
In Special Attention classes, just as in all child’space nyc offerings, the focus is on: a) helping parents better connect to their child through touch and b) teaching techniques of touch and movement specific to each child’s needs to support their development. These smaller groups allow for more individualized time with each child. View Class Schedule
Growing Up: Music + Movement for toddlers – 4 year olds
Music + movement for toddlers through pre-schoolers. We’ll sing and dance, walk, run, jump and more with songs that you’ll love to sing at home too! Lay the early foundations for becoming a great musician, and support your child’s development of balance, coordination, speech development, creative thinking and social skills in the process. (This class is on hold until Child’Space has a permanent home. In the meantime, for Brooklyn, I highly recommend Brooklyn Community Playgroup
