Your child's earliest years are full of the joy of discovery and your little one relies on you to guide the way through life's first social encounters. Our Parent-Child play groups are led by experienced teachers who understand the needs of the very youngest children and who look forward to sharing a morning with you and your child.
Our morning includes play time for the children and activities to keep parents' hands occupied as well. You may help prepare the snack, join the simple finger games, or craft a toy from natural materials. Your child will feel comfortable exploring new toys and making friends in this warm and save environment with Mom or Dad nearby. We'll join in songs and finger plays, enjoy a hearty snack and play outside in our beautiful garden.
As a parent, you will also have the opportunity to spend time with other parents and join in conversations and sharing. Parents who joined us in the past have found this a rewarding, supportive experience.
Our Parent-Child groups meet one morning a week in six- to eight-week sessions throughout the school year at our beautiful Nursery-Kindergarten location. Typically the morning runs from 9:00 to 11:30a.m. Children who tire easily are welcome to leave earlier. The groups are for children from babies through age 3 1/2. Siblings up to age 4-1/2 are welcome. Please contact us to find out the current schedule and request a Parent-Child group application form and current sliding fee schedule.
