Baby Moves at Educare for Early Years

Baby Moves is a UK leading baby development programme.

It is a unique, award-winning, early years physical development, sound and sensory programme especially developed for babies from birth to three years, with the baby and toddler at the heart of everything we do.

Baby Moves

Our programmes are based on the latest neurological research into how babies and toddlers grow and develop, and have translated this current neurological research into practice.

The Baby Moves programmes are now being used in parent groups, nurseries and other settings as well as with franchisees up and down the United Kingdom. The Baby Moves and Toddler Moves training programmes are endorsed by CACHE (Council for Awards in Care, Health and Education), ensuring the quality of the training.

The Baby Moves programme was first developed in 2006 by a team of Early Years professionals that included Movement in Education Specialists and Teachers of children with Special Educational needs.

This creative team write and design Award Winning and acclaimed creative resources for the the education and childcare market, as well as running training, parent workshops and conferences for local education authorities and organisations.

Baby Moves believes that movement is the first language and one that all babies use and current research into child development is showing that increasing a child’s movement will give them the best start in their lives and education. Our programme is designed to stimulate each baby’s unique all-round development and supports the links which exist between the brain and the body.

Baby Moves celebrates how wonderful babies are and how ready they are to engage with the big wide world. Baby Moves is a multi-sensory physical development and music programme especially designed for babies from birth to when they just begin to toddle. Giving opportunities for communication between adults and babies and between one baby and another, with plenty of time for physical development. We show you how to provide a sensory message, sensory activities, physical development activities and plenty of ideas for communication.

Toddler Moves

We like to celebrate how active and terrific toddlers are, and provide a special Toddler Moves programme just for them following on from Baby Moves. Based upon the natural developmental movement patterns of small children and traditional British nursery rhymes we give each toddler the opportunity to move, talk, play and explore within their own special environment which we show you how to create for yourself.

“At Educare for Early Years “Baby Moves” is an essential part of baby life in our nurseries. We have adapted the baby daily routines to involve Baby Moves aspects throughout the day. As an Early Years Professional I can see the huge benefits this is having on the babies in our settings and we can clearly observe their development in all areas of learning, in particular, the three prime areas.”
