Savoorke | Parent Infant Group
Infants are amazing! They absorb everything that surrounds them and makes it their own. The brain is busy with making neuropathways and the environment can provide everything necessary for this process. What can we as parents do to help this process and development to the utmost?
Families with infants up to walking age are welcome to join a new series of 8 sessions. You will receive lots of interesting information that is not generally provided but every parent would like to know!
We offer a peaceful, serene environment where you can meet other parents and their children. There is time for sharing your experiences and learning more about how to help your infant develop to his/her full potential.
