Today, we brought Abbie to The Little gym to have some fun in the class named “Bugs” (for the baby from 4-10mths).
We arrived at 12:15, 15 minutes earlier before the class started.The environment is great. Neat and tidy, enough space for babies to move freely (although Abbie is not yet to crawl very well), natural light, warm and welcome atmosphere, good facilities……
Our teacher Ms. Pxx, she is excellent. First, we had some warm up activites such as stretching, jumping, walking……a series of excercises not only for warm up but also strengthen the muscle prepare the baby to crawl and walk.
we are walking slowly
Then she introduced how to hold the baby to complete the moment of rolling which can help the development of inner ear. (sort of balancing but that’s doesn’t mean that it is a must to do so) She also helped Abbie to do hand stands.I was suprised that Abbie can have a turn to try the unparellel bars with assist.
Abbie tries the unparellel bars twice!!
Another equipments which help babies roll.
I love the parents who are engaged in the class with their babies!!
Bubble Time, as the bubbles fall down slowly so babies have enoght time to watch!
However, near the end of the class Abbie fell asleep. “Abbie is the youngest in the class and she is falling asleep so we sing the song softly.” Teacher said. I held her in my arms and the whole class sang the Goodbye Song softly (so sweet).
To sum up, the teacher is so professional which make me feel comfortable to follow her instructions to do the activities with Abbie.
後記：堂費屬偏貴類別，但環境、設備、老師都很好。不要誤會做Gym是必需，回想我們這一代沒有Playgroup/ 做Gym 也是健康長大，擁有幸褔的生活。雖然有云三歲定八十，但個人認為成功的要訣不是只取決於兒時讀過什麼，而是父母/師長有否培養孩子正確的態度，而他可受用終生。
