Parent & Child Classes
Our Parent & Child classes are specially designed to engage infants and toddlers to age three. Working through the developmentally appropriate means of touch, movement, and imitation, teachers lead parents and their children to explore the world around them through multi- sensory collaboration. This exploration offers a healthy balance between the child’s essential, natural initiative for independence and a safe introduction to peer cooperation.
These classes lay the building blocks for elementary school. Science and math are introduced as tools for the exploration of movement and the physical properties of the natural world through play. Reading is rooted in language acquisition and the development of a rich imagination. Writing begins with strengthening the small motor skills. The teacher gently guides the natural play and interaction of the class towards healthy acquisition of these important skills, while the children complete activities at their own pace, and in their own style.
Woodland Friends is our newest Parent & Child class. Engage your child with nature through imaginative play, gardening activities, and adventurous walks exploring our certified wildlife habitat. Watch as your child experiences spring through stories and songs, along with preparing and sharing wholesome snacks. With the guidance of our Parent Child teacher, young children develop an early appreciation for the natural world, cultivating social skills and a basic understanding of what it means to be part of a larger community of friends.
