Baby College South Africa is a platform that offers a series of developmental classes for babies from birth to 3 years. Classes include a carefully designed mixture of physical, multi-sensory and cognitive games, exercises and activities including music, dancing, singing and much more - all designed to cover every aspect of your child's development.
Initially developed in the UK by a neurodevelopmental practitioner and an associate of the INPP (Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology), much time was spent by her helping school-age children who were underachieving educationally due to developmental problems. She then went on to set up gym-style classes for babies where she used specific movement routines to encourage correct early development.
Running these for more than 15 years, she teamed up with other new mums, who had attended her classes. Together they established the Baby College programme researching baby development and parenting. The Baby College classes are specifically designed to offer a complete developmental workout.
In South Africa, we feel there is a need for a fully rounded programme for babies that also provides a special time for, often, busy parents to get to know their young children and how they grow. As university-qualified primary school teachers, Prenisha Naicker and Shona Sheng have an overwhelming passion for baby and child development and aim to support the vital role parents play in bringing up their children.
