We have recently introduced Beat Baby to the Toddlers at Bromsgrove!
Beat baby is an engaging, multisensory resource that can be used in groups and with individual children. We can use Beat baby to begin to hold the Toddlers attention and encourage emotional engagement. It can also be used for nurturing, turn-taking and promoting positive behaviour. Beat baby starts the session curled up in a ball and the children have to wake up Beat baby with a special song which is helps the children to develop a sense of rhythm and steady beat.
The Toddlers have are started off learning the song to ‘wake up’ Beat Baby and are really looking forward to learning and engaging in the new songs and rhythms we will be introducing over the coming weeks.
