FirstPlay® teaches pre-symbolic play that is essential to healthy infant and child development. Within FirstPlay®, I offer two programs:

  • FirstPlay® Infant Massage Storytelling -Ages: 4 weeks to 3 years

  • FirstPlay® Kinesthetic Storytelling® -Ages: 3-6

“Research reveals that high levels of joy and caring touch between a parent and child helps to wire the brain to form emotionally healthy neuropathways, resulting in a life-long ability to develop emotionally intimate, empathetic and caring relationships. Infants who receive FirstPlay® experiences early on gain an inner sense of security and esteem which—as they grow—help them to better calm and self-regulate their own emotions.”
