Toddlers are eager to explore the world and others around them! In this class children will learn that they can wait, listen to others, be listened to, problem solve, and be part of a group. These are the foundations for parent-child partnership and later school success. Parents will have the opportunity to observe and learn from child play among their tot’s young peers. You’ll learn “parent tools” for supporting feelings, attachment, autonomy, mastery and problem solving. This is an inclusion class for all tots, including those with special needs.
This class includes inside playtime, singing and stories, a simple snack of “o” cereal and water for tots, and an outside time with lots of messy sensory activities. Parents will start the morning with quiet observation during the inside playtime, and will also get to share the ups and downs of living with a two year old with other parents and a facilitator during the adult conversation time while tots are enjoying snack.
