What is the aim of the tummy time instructor course?

The tummy time instructor training course is designed to provide practitioners with the knowledge and teaching ability to safely and effectively deliver tummy time sessions and courses to parents and babies within a variety of individual and group settings both face to face and virtually.

This will also include being able to deliver online sessions to parents and babies.

Our aim

Our aim is to train you to be able to deliver a really flexible way of teaching tummy time sessions either face to face or virtually. We train you in our 3 week course structure for groups and individuals as well as our stand alone tummy time workshops. We also offer a bonus module on running sessions successfully over online platforms such as Zoom.

Who can train as a tummy time instructor?

You will need to be experienced in just one of the following:
  • Qualified childcare practitioner such as a nursery nurse (Level 3 or above)
  • Infant massage instructor
  • Baby yoga instructor
  • Health care worker (nurses, health visitors and midwives)
The course assumes that participants will have previous knowledge in child development and teaching groups as well as your own insurance or the ability to obtain it.
