By working with the body, movement and physical contact, parents and children develop a new, physical form of communication, which is enjoyable for both; children enhance and improve their motor skills and self-confidence and parents develop a sense of trust in their child and themselves. 

We will begin with a 1 hour Contakids session and then move into a facilitated jam. 

Ideally participants will be one-one (one parent per child) with children aged 2-5 years. However, Zosia is willing to be flexible and welcome slightly younger, or slightly older children (up to age 8) and larger families.
