The Pikler Arch
At nine months Otto is pulling up on his Pikler Arch. He sometimes steps up to the first rail and right now I noticed he put one foot up to the second rail. It takes time, he's experimenting, he's testing and challenging himself! The Pikler Arch provides a implausible opportunity to meet his developmental wants in a safe and supervised way.
How we use the arch:
Always supervise. I would not put this in the child's bedroom. We've got it in his movement/play area, subsequent to our residing space which is always supervised.
Have it on or close to a soft or padded surface. I wouldn't put the arch directly on hard tiles. Ours is on a wool rug which works fine. I considered putting a lambswool or thin mattress close by however to this point it's not needed.
Allow the child to explore it independently. They will use it when they are ready. There is no need to incentivize or show them the right way to do it and I might by no means put a child on it. Just make it available!
Why we like the arch:
It's small. It is perfect for the child who is on the very starting of their climbing, they can use it to drag to standing and there's no risk of them getting stuck or climbing too high that they can not get down. The size and the space between the rails has been designed for infants from crawling.
Improbable for their muscle development and coordination. Otto is a superb climber and he needs to climb. He climbs our stairs, couches, equipment on the playground and the arch is one other avenue for him to explore.
Assists the child to meet developmental needs. Climbing, exploring, testing limits and capabilities are real developmental needs. When the child's developmental wants are met they're typically more settled, calm and happy.
Assist the child to develop spatial awareness.
Because of the design, it empowers babies. T,he steps are small, they can use the rails to pull up with their hands, it enables the infant and permits them to safely use their rising our bodies in new and exciting ways.
It brings joy. The Pikler Arch brings joy to the child once they realize what they are capable of once they fulfill their aim. I can see Otto beam with pride when he climbs up on it.
Assists children to develop to their full potential.
