ONLINE CLASSES

YOU & ME ONLINE PACKAGES

(AGES 12-36 MONTHS)

Be the flower while your child becomes the butterfly! These monthly caregiver and child classes use props and materials to stimulate the senses and promote your child’s social development, motor skill growth, and language acquisition. In our brand new online packages, you are able to bring the fun of our caregiver/child classes into your own home! These packages include:

 

– One online meet-and-greet session to develop a familiarity with the instructor

– A digital copy of an interactive activity packet you and your child can do at home at your own pace, complete with recordings of three themed storybook readings and several accompanying activities

– Two live online class sessions with new activities together as a class

– A curated list of suggested simple, age-appropriate toys used in the course, with ideas on future uses for each and suggested modifications for activities with comparable materials

 

You have the flexibility of choosing between two times for each live session, picking and choosing which day and time works best for you as the month progresses.

MY FRIENDS & ME ONLINE 

(AGES 3-5 YEARS)

Older children are ready to play on their own! While learning in the safety of their own homes, students will work together to generate new ideas, develop relationships while building upon others’ ideas, and enter the world of make believe. Through the use of music, movement, and dramatic play, these classes ignite your child’s imagination while flexing their problem-solving, language, and physical skills.
