The first year of life is vital to the well-being of the baby. Although learning continues throughout life, there is a special window of opportunity for brain growth and learning that occurs in the first twelve months of life. 

We now know that intellectual development starts at birth, if not earlier. This means that effective sensory stimulation is essential for the baby. We also know that mobility development starts in utero and must be permitted to continue from the instant of birth onward.

Anything that physically stops or restricts the baby for any significant time decreases the precious opportunity to move.

Appropriate intellectual stimulation and mobility opportunity are the basis for language and manual development. All babies have a right to move and explore. Babies are born moving, but too often the modern baby is bundled up, put upside down on his back, put in a baby seat or a backpack, and has no opportunity to crawl. This teaches the baby that movement is impossible.

Our parents learn how to start right at birth to create a great mobility environment so that the baby is crawling in no time, then creeping, and cruising the household to explore and discover.

Parents learn how to evaluate their baby through The Institutes Developmental Profile. This gives each parent a clear picture of where the baby’s development is on track and where it needs more stimulation and opportunity. This program gives a detailed map of the first twelve months and carefully guides mother and father through each stage. Parents quickly see that development should not occur by accident but rather on purpose with a clear plan that works.

Much More Than Expected
"This course was so much more than I was expecting in the best way possible. After my nieces went through this program, I had a basic understanding of what it could accomplish. But taking this course made me realize how much more there is and how much the baby can accomplish and benefit so early."

Are You Ready?

The Newborn course focuses on teaching parents how to evaluate their baby’s progress and how to strengthen areas may be slow and enhance areas that are developing faster

Parents learn how to communicate with their baby and build a stronger bond right from birth. This knowledge creates a better quality of life for the baby and for mother and father.
