“Playing, Activity, Thinking, Part I”
by Éva Kálló and Eszter Mózes,  narrated by award winning journalist Victoria Looseleaf.


World renowned experts Eszter Mózes, clinical child psychologist and Director of the Lóczy Foundation for Children, and Éva Kálló, Pikler Pedagogue and Master Trainer, delve deep into the topic of play and cognition based on their 40 years of research, work with, and observations of young children at the Pikler Institute in Budapest, Hungary.
In this film one observes how infants’ thoughts grow from their free movement through space and independent manipulation of objects. This free exploration and play creates a solid base for a child’s later abstract thinking and theorizing.


Through a practice of attentive observation Dr. Emmi Pikler (1902-1984) recognized the competence, creativity and ingenuity of these youngest humans by simply watching what they do as they play, socialize and move independently. Based on her observations she articulated an interdependent practice of care. Research and clinical observations suggest that the end result of caring for infants and toddlers using her approach of care and attention is the development of a mutually respectful relationship, the effects of which last through adulthood through building the child’s unique intelligence and self-confidence.

by Anna Tardos and Agnes Szanto-Feder

It was the Hungarian pediatrician, Emmi Pikler, who called attention to a child’s independent development of motor skills. Given the freedom to move on their own, children will learn themselves and of their own initiative to sit up, stand up and walk.

The tree children in this film are living at the Emmi Pikler Institute in Budapest, Hungary, where they have warm and stable relationships with the adults taking care of them. We will see how important moving and exploring variations of movement is in their lives.

Paying Attention to Each Other
paying-attentionby Anna Tardos and Geneviève Appell

In four bath-time scenes we see children between 8 and 12 months of age with their respective care-takers. The film shows how each bath-time with its protagonists is unique although all four bath scenes follow the same order of events. The quality of attention that both child and adult pay one another is of central importance here. It is this dialogue that allows the infant to define him or herself and play an active role in his or her own development. Runtime: 27 min

A Lóczy Film at the Pikler Institute, produced in 1992 by the
Pikler-Lóczy Association for Early Childhood, Budapest and the  Association Pikler-Lóczy de France.

Bathing the Baby
bathingbabyby Julianna Vámos and  Iren Csatari

Concern, Empathy and Acquired Gestures (1)

The principal innovation in the baby’s daily care from the point of view of the school of E. Pikler at Budapest is to treat bodily care as one of the principal meeting places between the baby and the caregiver.
The adult creates an enviroment where this daily bath becomes a space where the baby can express his first competences and little by little becomes an active partner in a moment of relaxation and freedom of movement.
The aim of this film is to show how skillful gestures by the adult during baby care helps the baby to relax, protects his well-being and implicitly invites his participation.
This film is intented for experts in infant care and their scools, however, this film could be of interest to anyone who bathes a baby. Runtime: 34 min
