Baby Massage and Baby Yoga are wonderful activities to offer in your nursery and childcare setting.
As a former nursery nurse, I know how important the bond is between baby/child and child care provider. By learning baby massage/baby yoga, the nursery staff/childminders/nannies/maternity nurse/neonatal nursery nurses will have the basic knowledge and understanding so they can offer safe baby-led sessions to the baby’s in their care-which has many benefits for both staff and baby.
