PARENT-CHILD CLASSES

Parents and Children 0-5 attend classes together

For children, it is an opportunity to spend one-on-one time with a parent while exploring a rich and varied environment with other children their own ages. For parents, discussions on pertinent parenting issues are led by a staff of experienced, caring teachers trained in child development, family counseling, and education. Teacher assistants, who are experienced with children, provide a stimulating and safe developmentally appropriate environment.

Classes include: Babies, Non-Separating Toddlers, Two Year Olds, Preschoolers, Family
