The Pikler Arch

The Pikler Arch

At 9 months Otto is pulling up on his Pikler Arch. He typically steps up to the first rail and at this time I seen he put one foot up to the second rail. It takes time, he is experimenting, he is testing and challenging himself! The Pikler Arch provides a incredible opportunity to fulfill 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 have now it in his movement/play space, subsequent to our dwelling space which is always supervised.
Have it on or near a soft or padded surface. I would not put the arch directly on hard tiles. Ours is on a wool rug which works fine. I considered putting a lambswool or thin mattress nearby however to date it's not needed.
Enable the child to discover it independently. They will use it when they are ready. There is no must incentivize or show them the way to do it and I'd never put a child on it. Just make it available!
Why we like the arch:

It is small. It is excellent for the child who's at the very starting of their climbing, they will 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 dimensions and the space between the rails has been designed for infants from crawling.
Unbelievable for his or her muscle development and coordination. Otto is a great 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 satisfy developmental needs. Climbing, exploring, testing limits and capabilities are real developmental needs. When the child's developmental wants are met they are 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 allows them to safely use their rising 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 when 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.
