Baby Play Basics Online Course
Many new parents wonder, “What should I be doing with my baby all day?” Others are overwhelmed by everything they “should” be doing to support their babies’ development and ask, “Where do I even begin?” That’s where we come in!
Introducing Baby Play Basics, an online course that invites parents to play, learn, and connect with their babies. We’ve structured Baby Play Basics by Rose & Rex as a unique family experience. While many educators offer entertaining classes for you to attend with your baby, we are committed to teaching the foundations of developmental play. This allows you to create meaningful, engaging at-home learning experiences as your baby grows and develops.
This course is led by Lauren Vien, Education Director and author of our best-selling Guide to Positive Language Strategies. Within 24 hours of purchasing Baby Play Basics, you will receive an email granting you access to the Rose & Rex virtual classroom. You can view our video classes and supporting documents as needed, all at once, or on a weekly basis, similar to an in-person 4-week class experience. In each video class, Lauren will highlight a specific play material and explore how different types of play impact your baby and the connection you share. You’ll walk away with actionable play tips and language strategies, a repertoire of engaging songs, and a new understanding of your baby’s development.
