I’m A Big Kid Now

2-3 yrs

Have you taken all of our Parent/Tot classes?  Is your two-year-old ready to try a class on his/her own?  Then this is the perfect class for them!  Each week we will have some great toys out for the children to play with to help ease the separation.  After playtime, we will introduce the children to carpet time with songs, stories and dance.  The children will get a chance to try their hand at arts and crafts, too.  Each class will also have a snack time to allow the children to sit together and socialize.  Please inform us of any allergies at time of registration.  We encourage parents to drop off and leave quickly as this aids in the children’s transition to “school”.  Children do not need to be potty trained, but a parent will need to return if changing is required. No class 3/31, 4/14.

Prepping for Preschool

2½ -5 yrs

Every year we get lots of questions from parents asking us if their child is ready for preschool. We asked our preschool teachers to help us develop a list of skills that they think make a well-rounded preschooler and we are putting that list to use in this great educational class. Many times parents think about the academic skills, but this list is more about the basics needed to be successful.  With these skills in place, the academics will follow. We will focus a lot on fine motor skills involving pencil grip and writing, painting, scissors and gluing.  We will also be working on buttons, zippers, and puzzles.  Some of our time each week will also be spent on following directions through carpet/story time, songs, dances and simple academic worksheets.  Each class will have a short playtime as well, to work on socialization and friendship. This is a drop-off program.

Super Sensory

12-18 mos w/parent

Your child is at an amazing stage. They are now getting up and moving, expanding their boundaries and trying to better understand the world around them.  The senses are the gateway to unlimited learning experiences. Sensory play and activities include anything that stimulates your child’s senses including: taste, smell, touch, sight and hearing. These activities facilitate exploration and naturally encourage children to use scientific processes while they play, create, investigate and explore. Each week we will focus on different aspects of learning through a variety of sensory activities specifically designed to address these skills. Please dress for possible messy activities. Let us know of any allergies at the time of registration as some activities may involve food or items that may end up in mouth or on skin.  This is a parent/child program.

Simply STEM for Toddlers

2 ½-3 yrs w/ parent

Using simple lessons, crossing the curriculum, we will help your child develop their scientific skills.  STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math. This is a hot topic in the schools, and we want to bring it down to the introductory level. It is a hands-on, inventive and creative way to teach children educational concepts while they are having fun and playing. Each week will have a different theme to guide the learning process. We will incorporate stories, songs, and crafts to expand the experience. There will be plenty of time for exploring, predicting, building and solving. This is a parent/child program.

I’m A Big Kid Now

Have you taken all of our Parent/Tot classes?  Is your two-year-old ready to try a class on his/her own?  Then this is the perfect class for them!  Each week we will have some great toys out for the children to play with to help ease the separation.  After playtime, we will introduce the children to carpet time with songs, stories and dance.  The children will get a chance to try their hand at arts and crafts, too.  Each class will also have a snack time to allow the children to sit together and socialize.  Please inform us of any allergies at time of registration.  We encourage parents to drop off and leave quickly as this aids in the children’s transition to “school”.  Children do not need to be potty trained, but a parent will need to return if changing is required.

Prepping for Preschool

2½ -5 yrs

Every year we get lots of questions from parents asking us if their child is ready for preschool. We asked our preschool teachers to help us develop a list of skills that they think make a well-rounded preschooler and we are putting that list to use in this great educational class. Many times parents think about the academic skills, but this list is more about the basics needed to be successful.  With these skills in place, the academics will follow. We will focus a lot on fine motor skills involving pencil grip and writing, painting, scissors and gluing.  We will also be working on buttons, zippers, and puzzles.  Some of our time each week will also be spent on following directions through carpet/story time, songs, dances and simple academic worksheets.  Each class will have a short playtime as well, to work on socialization and friendship. This is a drop-off program.
