A Mommy and Me class offers numerous benefits. At the Armed Services YMCA we offer the following classes: Arts and Crafts, Movement to Music and Cooking Time. Here are a few of the pros of taking a mommy and me class.
Benefit of Mommy and Me Class #1: It is a great bonding activity.
Parent and Child classes offer a wonderful opportunity for bonding. According to this article here, bonding provides a sense of security and fosters a positive self-esteem. Bonding is necessary to help your little one grow and flourish. In a mommy and me class you will interact together, or just participate in similar activities that will promote bonding.
Benefit of Mommy and Me Class #2: It can help your child develop cognitive, social, and gross motor skills.
Many mommy and me classes will help with your child’s overall development. For example, in mommy and me music classes such as Kindermusik or Movement to Music , your child can develop early literacy skills and more. It can help them acquire reasoning skills, increase self- control, and cultivate a lifelong love for music.
In other classes, such as the arts and crafts classes your child will develop creativity and gross motor skills.
Benefit of Mommy and Me Class #3: It is a fantastic way to make new friends.
A class offers you a wonderful opportunity to make friends and meet other moms. This is a great chance for your little one to find a new buddy, and for you to build a new friendship with another mom. Friendships can make a tremendous difference in your journey through motherhood.
Benefit of Mommy and Me Class #4: It can help alleviate a feeling of loneliness.
This benefit applies to stay at home moms mostly. Sometimes, at-home moms will feel very lonely. A parent and child class can help alleviate those feelings of loneliness. It gives you something to do, can help provide a break in the day or week, and can help you make friends.
Benefit of Mommy and Me Class #5: It can help prepare your child for school.
A mommy and me class is a great way to prepare your children to be around other kids. It can help your child get used to being in a structural setting, help them learn how to follow directions, and much more. It’s a less anxiety-provoking way of getting your child ready for the classroom.
