DECATUR – Bright Start will be hosting infant massage classes beginning Thursday, September 10 at 7 PM.

The class will meet for five weeks and focus on the benefits of infant massage, such as reducing stress and better sleep for babies. Infants from ages 3 to 6 months are recommended for the class to have the most effect.

Bright Start officials also say these classes can help create attachment between babies and parents.

Classes are $25 for the 5 week series. All sessions will be held at the Children’s Center, located at 1811 South Taylor Road.

Additional information about the program and registration is available by calling 217-330-6454.
