Baby Massage For Childcare Providers
Baby massage is a wonderful activity to offer in your nursery and childcare setting
As a former nursery nurse, I know how important the bond is between baby/child and childcare provider. By learning baby massage, the nursery staff/childminders/nannies/maternity nurse will have the basic knowledge and understanding of baby massage so they can offer safe baby massage sessions to the baby’s in their care-which has many benefits for both staff and baby in their care.
The baby massage for childcare providers course runs for 2-3 hours.
