A Child & Adult Class
Adult caregivers are required to stay in the room with their child the entire class. There is not separation. As your child becomes more confidant adults can start to step back for the independent play sections of class. Adults can sit back and relax, but need to remain in the room and supervise and remain responsible for their child at all times.
Adults stay with their child the entire time. There is no separation, you do class together.
Class Details: Classes are typically 60 - 90 minutes long, Plus class parents get access to the class' activity page with a fin mix of weekly printables, play-to-learn ideas, info links and short videos. Fun, easy play-to-learn - and totally optional - activities for at home during the week. Don't worry it's not "homework" - just some easy ways to help you in repeating and extending the learning and play themes from class. Repetition and reminders of class learning themes are great for supporting children's comprehension and confidence. Plus, you get fun activities to do during the week!
Small Groups for individual attention: Class are filled with lots of individual attention, encouragement and sense of connection. Respect for the child, inclusion and responsiveness are all part of our group social experience. Private group classes available, please email to inquire.
Online Options also available: Fun engaging, interactive online play and learning.
Class Is For Two Of You Together: There is no separation. Parents and Caregivers remain solely responsible for their child's participation, safety and well being at all times. As your child develops confidence and social skills, adults may sit back more during the more independent play sections of class, but they must remain in the room and supervise thier child at all times.
Make Ups: Missed Classes are welcome to be made up if there is an available Drop In Class, that is already scheduled. Make ups can also be done in another type of class or at a different location. Make ups are not guaranteed and are based on current availability.
Teaching & Talking to Kids:
The Power Of Language Is Amazing.
How we speak to children has a great impact on their self confidence and social development.
Positive social themes are supported with focused, ongoing, authentic language of praise and encouragement.
All class activities are designed to support children's self esteem, self-confidence, social and communication skills.
Communication is everything.
