EARLY CHILDHOOD FAMILY EDUCATION

Fall Session Parent-Child -- Separating Classes The general format is the same for all classes. Parents and children spend the first hour of class together, working all of the activities the teacher and room provide. A special learning time called “circle time” may consist of music, finger plays, movement activities, a book, flannel board stories, puppets and anything else our teacher can dream up. The second hour, parents discuss topics of interest with each other and a licensed parent educator. Children enjoy play time with a licensed early childhood educator. *Note - You know your child best. For separating classes, if your child is not ready to seaparate, you are welcome to stay with your child the entire class time.

Family Connections

(Birth to kindergarten entry) Bring us your moms, dads, grandparents, infants, toddlers and preschoolers! We will enjoy our time together in theme-related activities, play and learning. Young children learn best by exploring materials firsthand. NOTE: We are using a "Pay and installment plan" procedure. You are paying for half of the course at registration and your credit/debit card or checking account will be charged the balance on 10/24/2022.
