Play-Based Classes for Parent & Child

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

We are offering two distinct sessions of this class Sept – Dec 2023. One will be at Monica Ros Campus and one will be at Secure Beginnings. Read on!

Your growing tot will have outside and inside child-centered play, including some messy sensory activities, clean up, singing, stories, and a simple snack.

Children will learn that they can wait, listen to others, be listened to, problem solve, and be part of a group.

During the inside playtime, parents/caregivers will start with quiet observation, exploring “parent tools” for supporting feelings, attachment, autonomy, mastery and problem solving, and sharing the ups and downs of living with a toddler with other parents and a facilitators.

“[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!”
