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 toys out for the children to play with and explore as parents’ drop-off and leave to encourage your child’s independence. After playtime, we will introduce the children to carpet time, we will sing songs, listen to stories, and create an art project. 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 will aid in the children’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. No class 11/23.

Every year we get lots of questions from parents asking us if their child is ready for preschool. Our preschool teachers helped 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 on fine motor skills involving pencil grip and writing, painting, scissors, and gluing. Your child will also work 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. This is a drop-off program. No class 11/25.

Yoga for children is all this in a noncompetitive and fun environment. Participants should dress to be active and may bring a blanket or beach towel for “shavasana” the ending relaxing pose. This is a drop-off program. No class 11/25.
