LEARN ABOUT OUR CHILDREN'S BRAINS - free taster

  • Jan 22, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • Neuilly. Metro Sablons. More details to come

PLEASE EMAIL SILVIA FOR THE ADDRESS. JUST ONE PLACE LEFT.

Anybody interested in a workshop about baby brain development (in utero - 3 years old)?
I am a scientist turned consultant turned "mumpreneur" (99.9% mummy, 10% entrapreneur. I know, it does not add up... that's the thing when you are a mum of two children under the age if 2.5 ;-)).
My mission is to bring the knowledge out of the psychology and neuroscience labs and into people's homes, so that parents and children can benefit from it.
Back in London, I used to run playgroup-style courses, where mums learned about brain development while the kids were playing.
More details on www.baby-brains.com and www.Facebook.com/babybrainsinfo
I would like to offer a free taster session to the english-speaking mums of Paris. Maybe sometime in January?
Let me know if you are interested!!

    Little one woke up late, cranky and runny nose, if she's coming down with something I would rather not expose her to a crowd! So sorry about the last minute change and sorry to miss your first Paris seminar Silvia! Break a leg!

    January 22, 2014

    • Silvia M.

      Hi Eleonore, sorry to read this. A fll babybrains course will start on Feb 4th. Do not hesitate to sign up :)

      January 22, 2014

  • Eleonore

    I am scheduled to come with 2 kids but would like to make sure we are not too many attending so that they remain in a safe environment while I focus on seminar?

    January 19, 2014

    • Silvia M.

      Don't worry Eleonore. We will not accept more than 8 parents :) See you on Wednesday!

      January 19, 2014

    • D B.

      The kids will need to be in the same room as us unless someone is willing to go and watch them down the corridor in the playroom... We have some toys and could put a film on the iPad if need be...

    Hi Silvia, when I rsvp'd I didn't realise you have to state whether or not you'd be bringing your baby along, my daughter is 9 months old and will be coming with me.. Thanks, see you all then..

    Hi Silvia
    I'm sorry that I won't be able to attend but as a working mum, I can only do evening and weekends. Let me know, given the volume of interest if you are going to have another session. Best, amanda

    January 16, 2014

    • Silvia M.

      Hi Amanda, if you can host an evening event, I will be happy to organise another free taster. I have a few other working mums that might be interested….. Thank you!

    Hi, not a mum, but am a papa! I have a 3yr old son and looking for some social interaction for us both. Are there any events on the weekends scheduled and are papas allowed?

      Russell, if your son likes to run, I have a 3.5 yr old boy in need of lots of running and it would be great to get him a running, climbing buddy!

      January 16, 2014

    • Silvia M.

      Hi Russell, you and your son are most welcome to attend the free taster on Wednesday! Let me know if you are interested and I will send you the address via email. Thanks

      January 17, 2014

  • Anna B.

    Hi Silvia, I RSVPed in the beginning but I hope that I'm still on the list. Can't wait to find out more about your métier! See you next week hopefully! X Anna

    January 17, 2014

    • Silvia M.

      Hi Anna, yes you and Arthur have got your place. (Unfortunately I cannot take all those who have RSVPed as I have 20 interested parents and only 10 places. But there are still a few availabilities :-)). Will send you the address via email. Looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday! I will also be at the playgroup on Tuesday. Are you coming? xxx

      January 17, 2014

  • Eleonore

    So sorry Silvia but im confused! I dont know how i can confirm again my attendance? Also, how can 17 be attending when its limited to 9? Congrats on the successful workshop!

    January 16, 2014

    • Eleonore

      I don't know how to do it, sorry, but my question was rather on the venue and how to manage kids and a lecture if there are so many of us?

      January 17, 2014

    • Silvia M.

      Thanks for raising the issue Eleonore. Babybrains courses are something like a playgroup from the point of view of the children. I will bring toys and books for them (they don't need much…actually it is better for their attention if there are only few things). Mums sit around the children and learn about their brains. Normal classes start and end with a children song and contain a short massage session for the little ones. We won't be able to do all that at the free taster class, but there will be space for children and hey will have a good time too.

  • Kelleyanne M.

    Hi Silvia, I would be really interested in joining you. Unfortunately I couldn't help with a venue. There are some nice child friendly cafés we could use.

    1 · January 10, 2014

    • Silvia M.

      Hi Kelleyanne, we now have a venue and a date: wednesday 22nd January at 10 am in Neuilly. Please email me if you can make it. Thanks

      January 15, 2014

    • Kelleyanne M.

      Hi Silvia, thank you but unfortunately I can't make it on Wednesdays. I will look out for another one. Hope it goes well.x

  • Silvia M.

    Hi all! Thank you very much for your interest! Thanks to Dorelia we now have a date and time for your free babybrains taster. Can you please comment to confirm that they are suitable to you and to let us know if you are planning on bringing your child (or children)? If you cannot come, please change your RSVP. I will be happy to organise another free taster if there is enough interest.

  • D B.

    Definitely interested and happy to host at my place too- could hold about 8-10 mothers and babies at my place in Neuilly near line 1 metro.

    1 · January 10, 2014

    • Silvia M.

      Yes I am assuming the same, but I will ask more specifically . I Will put date and time (10 is fine) on the suggested event right now and let us see how many sign up. A great big thank you again!!!

      January 13, 2014

    • Silvia M.

      One more question: how do you want to go about disclosing your address and code? Do you want to give it to me and I will send it to the participants one by one?

    Silvia, Sorry I went MIA. Xmas, work, relocation, travel, internet challenged etc. all piled up.
    Seems like you have multiple offers now :) I am in the 16th 10/Mirabeau 9/Jasmin and could host approx 8 comfortably. 10 if we're flexible on seating. what can we do to help make this happen? amanda

    1 · January 13, 2014

    • Silvia M.

      Thanks Amanda. Same here: been very busy with family engagements and travels….. 16th would work well for me, but Neuilly is even easier…so I am checking with D if we can find a suitable time. But we might organise a second event if there are enough people interested…. Will get back to you shortly. Thank you very much!!
