The Mommy & Me classes at The Happy Hatchlings are influenced by the innovative FenKid Concept established 1998 in Munich, Germany. It focuses on the individuality and specific needs of our child through observing, appreciating, valuing, recognizing and sharing the moment with our child. FenKid is related to the pedagogical concepts of Maria Montessori, Jesper Juul, Emmi Pikler and Elfriede Hengsternberg.
The Happy Hatchlings curriculum also includes the bestselling books The Happy Sleeper and Now Say This co-authered by Julie Wright a licensed psychotherapist. The Happy Sleeper a science-backed guide to helping your baby get a good night’s sleep has been a game-changer for countless families. The mindful approach is explained in detail and you will get the support to establish the routines if you feel it is a fit for your family.
During a typical class we sing with the babies, do a little mediation to relax the moms, observe the babies to learn how to read your child, discuss topics according to the babies age like sleep, introducing solids, milestones, separation anxiety, attachment, limit setting, language acquisition and many more. You will also have the time to ask any questions and connect with each other to build a strong support system among new moms.
