10 BENEFITS OF MOMMY&ME 

Being a parent is the most significant job you will ever have. It is incredibly rewarding and amazing, but can also be exhausting, stressful and, at times, lonely! As a parent it is important to build relationships with other mommies or daddies and continue to feel like part of a bigger community. A great way to do that is through Mommy and Me classes at SDA!

Learn about the 10 benefits of Mommy & Me dance classes at SDA.

HELPS INCREASE INDEPENDENCE

Participating in Mommy and Me classes helps little movers build confidence through independent and group participation. As classes progress, positive reinforcement opens pathways to individual accomplishment. The more they move, the more independent they become! 

BUILDS MOBILITY AND MOTOR DEVELOPMENT

Through a range of movement and play activities, Mommy and Me classes help children to develop coordination, balance and strength. Classes explore lots of different ways our body can move.

ENHANCES SOCIAL AWARNESS

Classes allow children to interact with others and make new friends! Our program exposes them to new sights and sounds, enabling them to pick up on important social cues like sharing, taking turns and shared experiences. Adjusting to new people and new circumstances is a first step toward building social confidence.

PROVIDES SENSORY STIMULATION

Children learn best when using all their senses; so engaging in a class that provides visual, auditory, physical and tactile stimulation is extremely beneficial for overall growth. This aids developmental aspects like fine and gross motor skills, problem-solving, and more!

 

INCREASES CONFIDENCE

As a child increases his independence as stated above, they also boost their overall confidence. They feel a sense of pride and accomplishment when they are able to crawl through an obstacle course or galop across the floor. The greater their confidence, the greater their development.

 

FOSTERS LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT

In classes, children are learning important communication and language skills. As they develop vocabulary and increase auditory skills, they begin to understand how to follow directions and make the most out of classes.

IMPROVES MOOD

We have all heard that exercising improves mood, but did you know Mommy and Me Classes can do the same thing? Besides helping you meet new people, it also gets you up and physically active which helps release endorphins. This chemical helps you and your child’s mood improve!

STRENGTHENS THE PARENT/CHILD BOND

Taking a dance class with your child helps you connect on a different level. Engaging with your child in class also allows parents to observe how their child learn best. Through dance and music, you and your child will learn how to better communicate with each other!

ENCOURAGES A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

The introduction to physical activity through dance at a young age encourages children to value exercise and promotes healthy development. As they grow, they’ll build on the foundation of movement they learn. Our classes also help parents stay active when getting to the gym can be complicated at times!

 

ALLOWS PARENTS TO BUILD CONNECTIONS

Mommy and Me classes help promote a sense of balance for parents by allowing them the opportunity to socialize and meet other parents with similar interests. Making new friends with children of similar age creates a beneficial support system.

 

Above all else, you’ll find that Mommy and Me classes provide you the chance to not just watch, but actively take part in your child’s growth and development. In our opinion, there’s no better feeling of satisfaction than that!
