Wee Peas (6-12 months)

Wee Peas provides our littlest scooters with active learning activities that focus on whole baby development. Wee Peas are given opportunities to move, reach, and grasp in a baby safe environment that is rich with color, sound and tactile experiences. Wee Peas enjoy activities that promote visual tracking, core strength and balance needed for sitting and standing. The Wee Pea curriculum includes activities that promote grip strength and hand coordination in grasping and releasing objects. Objectives include activities that promote crossing the midline and bilateral awareness needed for crawling and walking.Wee Peas work on spatial awareness and positional comfort through gentle, developmentally appropriate rolling and inversion exercises.
