Activities

The Nursery's special activities have the purpose of stimulating concentration, communication, creativity, as well as touch, hearing, and sensory perception through its dynamic classes held during different times of the day.
 
Each one of the activities is offered, weekly, to the children by a teacher specialized on the specific area. Amongst all activities listed bellow, the only one that is not included is swimming. 
 
Psychomotricity
The psicomotricist, attentive to the stages of each baby, stimulates them diversily through individual and small group classes. This type of work favors the children’s motor skills development such as: support the head, crawling, hands and knees crawling position up to the walking phase, when emphasis is placed on balance of the torso.  
 
Rhythm and Movement
This activity is taught by a capoeira instructor, using children’s typical songs, percussion intruments accompanied by clapping and lots of body expression movements.
 
English
The children start to have contact with the English language at the Nursery. The work is done by a specialized teacher who communicates with the babies only in this language. 
 
Through this interaction, the first contact with the second language occurs in a natural and pleasurable way. The activities are done through story-telling with puppets, songs, games. Everything is done in a contextualized environment regarding the Studio da Criança's bilingual proposal.
 
Swimming class (from 6 months old on)
Swimming classes for babies are basically playful. By playing games and listening to music, the baby is motivated to grab and release objects, to blow, to kick, to stay in different positions, etc. This helps the psychomotor development because the water makes the baby movements easier and more comfortable. 
 
All activities proposed, such as grabbing toys and balancing themselves on buoys develop the muscles of the back of the head, back, buttocks, and abdomen; developing balance and facilitating the action of sitting. 
 
In addition to that, the water resistance strengthens the musculature, increases the cardiac frequency and respiratory capacity.
