Play-Based Classes for Parent & Child

Our core classes are specifically designed for parents and caregivers and the young children they care for. Each class is designed for a particular stage of babyhood and parenthood (0-14 months, 12-24 months and 22-36 months).

Circle of Parenting: 0-14 months

This class includes an adult quiet observation time as the children explore and play, an adult conversation time where parents and caregivers can receive peer and facilitator support, and ends with a short singing time all together.

Baby Floor Time: 12-24 months

This class includes an adult quiet observation time as the children explore and play, an adult conversation time where parents and caregivers can receive peer and facilitator support, and ends with a short singing time all together.

Toddler Play and Parent Education: 22-36 months

This class includes inside playtime, singing and stories, a simple snack of “o” cereal and water, 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.

“[Secure Beginnings] has really helped me to be a better parent. I look forward to it every week and miss it during the breaks”

"This was such a safe place for us to learn and grow. We look forward to coming to our class every week. It was so helpful to see how the facilitators interacted, supported, encouraged and addressed our concerns and needs. For me (mom) this was the greatest place!!! Especially to just feel safe to let my child be himself and let me go and ask questions and feel supported. This has been so incredibly valuable to me and my family."

“I love coming to [Secure Beginnings] with my children. It has always been a wonderful place to spend time. We look forward to playgroup each week. A very special time to be with my kids in a quiet nurturing environment.”

“[Secure Beginnings] offers a safe space in a busy world for us to bond with our children. The facilitated sessions help us to see our young children for who they are and to love and embrace them in their developmental stages. Thank you for such a great gift!”
