At Kiddibops, we have always understood that a Newborn's needs are different, and that they are very attuned to learning and connecting with the world through sound. This is why we developed the first course of its kind and we are so very proud of it. and we love delivering it.
It's so wonderful when we see our parents and babies all enjoying, responding and connecting through our simple, yet effective musical activities
What our parents say...
" We’ve just finished the Newborn Development course & it was absolutely brilliant. Rachel was so welcoming & made every class a delight! Rachel is so knowledgable about music & how it impacts babies development. We have loved the songs & little tips/activities we can do at home." - Sarah
Our Newborn courses are designed specifically to support babies from 0 to 3 months. We know that we need to spend a bit more time helping them to develop strength in their neck muscles, focus on moving objects and body control.
But did you know that your Newborn is born an astute and highly competent musician?
" I loved taking my six week old baby boy to the newborn development class every week. I was able to see amazing changes in alertness and his motor skills week by week. Rachel guided us through some lovely songs, movement and dances and always explained why everything we did would help our babies develop. The printed words and access to the songs online helped get me singing to my baby at home. An absolute joy to be part of this class! " - Tamara
All Newborn's are born with an innate musical ability and their brains are predisposed to responding to sound before anything else. They have incredible listening skills and can process melody, pitch and timbre which enables them to communicate and develop language skills. A Newborn's brain is working and processing information at a rapid rate. This means it is easy for them to get overstimulated and anxious in a short space of time. We design our newborn classes to be slightly shorter with small bursts of the right kind of stimulation that a newborn really needs to get their neural pathways going.
We also know when to wind it all down, so that they get to have a lovely long nap at the end, and you get a well earned rest too!
Each course runs for 6 weeks and consists of 6, 30 minute weekly sessions. During the session you and your Newborn will cuddle, tickle, giggle, sing, smile, workout, dance and play instruments together. Most importantly you'll be getting to know each other and sharing quality time together.
" I’ve loved going to the Newborn development course. It was a great confidence boost to be out with a very young baby and I could not believe how much the songs engaged her from the start. Variety of different things each week to try at home and no session was the same. Handouts so you can remember the songs at home too! " - Gemma
During the course you will be given handouts with top tips, and access to our exclusive Facebook Group with resources you can use at home, giving you extra confidence in supporting your newborn's first step on their learning journey. Our venue courses also include access to a WhatsApp support group for new parents and access to our video sessions should you miss one in the venue .
You'll be surprised at all the new things your newborn will do after just a couple of sessions...
" Thank you Rachel.. we’ve enjoyed your newborn course . Margaux has come such a long way and I can already see the improvement in her movements and sounds since we started your sessions .. I use the songs at home on a daily basis , Her little face lights up when she hears the songs we will be joining your baby sessions next (next age group up) would highly recommend." - Sarah
