Each level of and activity is designed to enhance early learning, build socialization skills, increase confidence and strengthen the bond between the child and caregiver.

The little ones will enjoy nursery rhymes and puppets, along with developmental toys and activities to encourage stimulation through senses. Parents will learn calming techniques such as simple infant message, as well as gain knowledge of typical developmental milestones. Arts & crafts are lots of fun! Each 8-week session will include a seasonal footprint project.
Toddler Mommy & Me (Independently walking -2 yrs old)
The toddler Mommy & Me class is appropriate for independent movers under the age of 3. The toddler class is more active than the infant class, and is designed to channel the energy of a toddler. Each class involves music and dancing with props such as rainbow ribbons and rhythm sticks. Parachute play and bean bag games help children learn to cooperatively play as a group. Participation in such activities will help develop independence in each child, while increasing confidence. Free play activities include jumping mats, slides, tunnels, ball play, ride on toys, as well as sensory play. An optional craft is also included in each weekly class.
