Now that your child has started to walk confidently they will attempt a varied range of tasks on various pieces of equipment improving motor skills particularly in balance and co-ordination. Your child will also be introduced to nursery/body identification rhymes and action songs helping towards language development. Again with the assistance of parents/carers, the classes gently stimulate body awareness and encourage the confident walker to attempt climbing, jumping and rolling.
