Special Attention Class

Child’space NYC offers small classes for children who would benefit from more individualized attention.* It is a wonderful option both for infants who receive services through Early Intervention, and for those who were denied services but for whom concerns remain. It can be a helpful additional program for children who are undergoing physical therapy or other therapies. Child’Space NYC is a privately offered class, and has no connection to the EI program.

In Special Attention classes, just as in all child’space nyc offerings, the focus is on: a) helping parents better connect to their infant through touch and b) teaching techniques of touch and movement specific to each baby’s needs to support their development. These smaller groups allow for more individualized time with each child.

Crawlers & Cruisers

Any age crawling baby – possibly beginning to stand or cruise.

Perhaps more than any other age, crawling babies like to keep in motion! Child’Space with crawlers teaches parents touch and movement from the Child’Space and Feldenkrais methods but unlike the pre-crawlers class, almost everything is done “on the move.” We learn new skills and make new connections as we sing, dance and play and explore! As some babies in class begin to stand and then walk, we explore the ways that we can support development of these very busy babies. Learn to support and enrich development with movement activities, instruments to play and great songs just right for crawlers and beginning walkers.

Pre-Crawlers II

Rolling, Reaching, Pivoting and More

In this class for babies five months and older, we look at how to support each baby’s learning, through touch, movement and song.   Parents and caretakers learn to support and encourage the learning of movements that will become the building blocks for balanced, coordinated sitting, crawling, walking and more.  

What is Child’Space NYC?

Child’Space NYC is a unique, joyful program for babies and their parents or caregivers. Child’Space Method fosters new connections between parent and child through touch, through teaching parents hands-on techniques to support their babies’ development. All classes are taught by Dan Rindler Guild Certified Feldenkrais practitioner and Child’Space Practitioner.
