As a parent, you spend much of your time thinking about how to help your child’s development. We know it’s important to talk to them, read to them, and play with them. As they turn from baby to toddler, and toddler to child, we wonder how to continue building a healthy bond. We want to ensure a strong bond and developmental advancement. Understanding the importance of parent and child classes can help as you navigate both things.
Parent and child classes, like our baby/toddler and caregiver classes, provide immense benefits for both development and bonding. We know that you care and that’s why we want to help ensure you know the importance of these classes.
The importance of parent and child classes include:
Dedicated Time With Your Child
Perhaps you’re thinking, “I spend nearly every waking moment with my little one!” and you’re not quite sure why you’d need a class. Or, maybe you spend much of your day juggling work, home, and more and you’re just not sure how to squeeze in more time with your little one.
Whichever the case, parent and child ballet classes offer dedicated time with your child. When we are with our children many hours a day, it’s easy to spend time juggling them and something. We are playing with the toddler and washing the dishes. There’s having a meal with our preschooler while checking our work email.
With baby/toddler and caregiver ballet classes, you’re setting aside a bit of time multiple days a week to focus on time with your child. It’s an excellent way to bond while aiding in mastering new developmental skills.
Classes Help You Assist Your Child In Mastering Developmental Milestones
We know our infants need to roll, sit, and crawl. We know our toddlers will learn to walk and run. However, what skills do our preschoolers need? They need to learn how to skip, balance on one foot, jump, hop, and more.
When we take caregiver and me classes with our children, we can help them learn these skills. We also learn what we can do between classes to help our children master developmental milestones.
Did you know that some typical classrooms see 80% of students lacking appropriate core strength which impacts important milestones? Helping your little one master developmental skills in the preschool years can improve their schooling years.
Core strength is needed for proper posture and being able to sit. Scapular and arm strength are needed for writing. Learning patterns and staying on beat with music can aid in math skills.
You get to spend time with you children while supporting their ongoing development. With our professional instructors guiding you, you can help ensure they master each step before moving to the next.
Your Child Learns Important Social Skills And Confidence
When a child is learning from another adult, they are developing important social skills. They’re learning to pay attention for small age-appropriate amounts of time. They learn how to listen and execute one, two, and three step instructions which is important for development.
Children who take ballet classes also learn how to work hard and achieve something. As they master each new step, their confidence builds. Being able to listen to others, interact with teachers, and having good confidence can be important for social skills.
Before sending your little ones off to school, these classes will ensure they have the social skills and confidence to have a positive experience. Going to school, whether preschool or elementary, can be a big change. Even if your child has been in daycare, the shift to a more structured environment can be big. Preparing them with classes is a great way to prepare them while spending more time with them.
A healthy bond, social skills, and mastered developmental milestones can help your kids get off to a great start.
