Certification with Nurturing Pathways® trains you to:

  • Build bonds between parent and child
  • Build bodies that are capable and confident
  • Build brains that are school-ready


Nurturing Pathways® Creative Dance Program is based on neurological principles regarding:

  1. Movement’s central role in brain development
  2. The importance of parent-child bonding


Nurturing Pathways® Creative Dance Program focuses on the progression of movement skills for babies, waddlers, and toddlers. It builds and refines the parent-child relationship through:

  • Expressive movement
  • Using Creative Play Products™
  • Communication skills

The Nurturing Pathways® Creative Dance Program includes a sequential progression of movement skills from birth through four, in a carefully laid out curriculum, with products to enrich the child’s entire sensory system. From early infancy the program works on building and refining expressive movement, play and communication skills in both the parent and child.
