12-18 MONTHS: SENSORY & SOCIAL PLAY I
Support curiosity, learning, and problem solving skills while fostering independent play. Songs, a familiar routine, a healthy snack, and early textural and sensory experiences create a uniquely natural, social learning environment. Flexible make-up class policy to support transitioning nap schedules.
Tuesdays or Thursdays 9:30-10:15am
18-24 MONTHS: SENSORY & SOCIAL PLAY II
As your child’s social play emerges and gross motor skills accelerate, we foster both. Building on the song, sensory, snack routine of the 12-18-month class, comfort, confidence, exploration, and independent skill-building flourish. You’ll be amazed what your toddler is capable of after a few months in this class.
