Parent and child classes
The purpose of the Parent and Child program is to expose and enhance early childhood development skills. Our curriculum is based on five fundamental whole child developmental categories which include cognitive, language, gross motor, fine motor and social skills. Our weekly developmental skills provide your child the opportunity to grow and learn at an age appropriate pace. We provide classes for these skills to be either introduced or mastered. A certified teacher coach will guide you and your child throughout the class as well as provide you with activities and information to integrate these fundamental lifelong skills at home
Dress Code: Children and parents are required to wear socks into the gym at all times. All participants should wear comfortable loose fitting clothing. Parents will be on the floor engaging with their child, and children will be crawling, skipping, hoping and climbing. Please be sure your clothes are suitable for an hour of movement!
10-16 Months - Puffer Bellies
Because of their innate desire to explore their new independence, we expose the children to a wide variety of props and equipment. We focus on stimulating the children’s senses through tummy time, music, soft props and mirrors, bubbles, balls and hoops.
17-24 Months - Rollie Pollie Penguins
These toddlers are beginning to develop a greater sense of self and independence. Their increased agility allows them to proceed with bigger physical skills. Gross Motor progressions learned include jumping, climbing, marching and hopping.
2 Years - Clownfish
We channel the children’s huge amount of energy into organized and structured learning while focusing on the five fundamental whole child developmental categories. At this age there is an increased ability to follow more complex directions and participate in more structured activities. These opportunities are presented consistently throughout the class.
