Bump to 18months

Only through freedom and environmental experience is it practically possible for human development to occur.



I want to tell you about the baby you are going to have.

She is an extraordinary being!

So sensitive, so intelligent, so finely tuned to the spoken and unspoken messages that surround her.

She, like you, is a person.

Join us, as we talk about this incredible person you are about to meet, and the first 5 months of her life.

We sit around a kitchen table and make some wonderful Montessori toys for baby that you simply can’t buy anywhere in this country. And while we’re doing that, we talk about some key aspects of child development relevant to the first 5 months of life.

And we’ll end with a beautiful meditation and relaxation.

Mind, body and soul.

Symbiotic Period: The first 6-8 weeks are a time for mum to recover physically. It is also an incredibly important period of psychological development, when the baby ‘decides’ that life is good after all, and that human relationship is beautiful. What Your Baby Can Do: Human beings have amazing bodies with which they can do so much. We start as babies, pure potential. As babies grow, week by week, they are able to do more and more. And at each step there is something we can do to help their efforts.
