Incy Wincy Babies - Early Learning

'''

Incy Wincy Babies is a visual arts program led by Barking Spider Visual Theatre that guides babies and their carers through the Incinerator Gallery.

Babies are shown art, sung to and played with in a supportive environment.

Research is proving that positive health and developmental outcomes for babies depends on interactions with caregivers that are responsive, warm and consistent. These relationships play an integral role in shaping a child’s future health and life outcomes.

It is in the spirit of supporting caregivers to develop these bonds through engagement with art that we offer this program.

  • The 9.30 to 10.30am program is recommended for babies aged 0 to 12 months
  • The 11am to 12 noon program is recommended for babies 12 to 24 months

Incy Wincy Babies will run on the following Fridays in 2019:

Light refreshments will be served at 10.30am. Both groups are welcome to attend.

$6 per child and accompanying carer free.

Bookings essential as class sizes are limited.
