Mini-Footprints for Under 5's

Mini Footprints is a fun, engaging movement and contact improvisation session, where you dance with your child! It has been designed to support the important early years stages, of attachment bonding and building positive brain pathways.

The session kicks off with circle time singing and quickly progresses into contact dance with the caregivers, releasing oxytocin for both, as a stress reliever and bond strengthener, which both are beneficial towards positive mental health .  Caregivers are encouraged to interact and explore touch with their child(ren), giving you special bonding time, before the rest of your busy day!

Props such as sponges, cars, balls, pom-poms, foil blankets, stretchy lycra, ducks, ribbons and the parachute get the whole family involved!

Each session is planned by Footprints’ fully qualified primary and early years teacher and choreographer, to support your child’s age appropriate developmental stage of social, emotional and physical skills.

 

**This class is suitable for SEN children, or caregivers with looked after children. There has been incredible evidence to show the use of dance and touch as a builder for vulnerable children.**
