Your child is at an amazing stage. They are now getting up and moving, expanding their boundaries, and trying to better understand the world around them. The senses are the gateway to unlimited learning experiences. Sensory play and activities include anything that stimulates your

Each week we will explore a color of the rainbow through books, songs, and crafts. A list of colors we will cover will be sent home at the first class. We encourage the kids to wear that color for “show and tell”. Children will leave each class with finished products to show off the color they have learned. Be prepared to get a little messy. This is a parent/ child program.

Have you taken all our Parent/Tot classes? Is your two-year-old ready to try a class on their own? Then this is the perfect class for them! Each week we will have some great toys out for the children to play with to help ease the separation. After playtime, we will introduce the children to carpet time with songs, stories, and dance. The children will get a chance to try their hand at arts and crafts, too. Each class will also have a snack time to allow the children to sit together and socialize. Please inform us of any allergies at time of registration. We encourage parents to drop off and leave quickly as this aids in the childr en’s transition to “school”. Children do not need to be potty trained, but a parent will need to return if changing is required. This is a drop-off program.

Every year we get lots of questions from parents asking us if their child is ready for preschool. We asked our preschool teachers to help us develop a list of skills that they think make a well-rounded preschooler and we are putting that list to use in this great educational class. Many times, parents think about the academic skills, but this list is more about the basics needed to be successful. With these skills, in place, the academics will follow. We will focus a lot on fine motor skills involving pencil grip and writing, painting, scissors and gluing. As well we will also be working on buttons, zippers, and puzzles. Some of our time each week will also be spent on following directions through carpet/story time, songs, dances and simple academic worksheets. Each class will have a short playtime as well, to work on socialization and friendship.
