Parent and Child
When you are the parent of an infant or young child, finding and building your community becomes so important. Our Parent & Child class gives parents or caregivers and their children, from infancy to 36 months, the opportunity to connect. It is a great way to share parenting experiences and support young children in building a safe bridge to their expanding world.
Beginning Social Interaction in a Safe, Healthy Environment
Join us as we work and play together, celebrate the seasons, and enjoy songs, stories, and finger games. Seasonal crafts and activities include felting, sewing, and making simple dolls and toys.
We follow a rhythmical structure of work and imaginative play to develop skills for healthy social interaction:
- Outdoor play and conversation
- Inside circle with songs, finger games, movement, and verse
- Outdoor play
The rhythm may change depending on the weather and the ages of the children.
We typically offer Parent & Child classes weekly during the school year, in three sessions: fall, winter, and spring. Parents are welcome to attend one meeting at no cost to try it out. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Parents registered in an earlier session receive priority for re-enrollment in subsequent sessions.
Program fees include supplies for craft projects and any written literature.
Join our Parent & Child email list and receive periodic news tailored to inspire and support parents of young children. You will also receive registration information for upcoming sessions as soon as it is available.
