The Parent/Toddler Class is an opportunity for parent/caregiver and child to explore together. In each class there will be a variety of interesting materials and activities from which to choose. Although there are facilitators in the class, they will not take over directing the children but rather encourage the child’s interest in various materials and activities.
During that time, a nurturing space for the children is created with free-play, circle-time, while also guiding the parents in activities. This allows the children to gain confidence in socializing with others while still in the presence of their parents. The songs, rhymes, and games learned by the children can be shared at home especially when there is a mom or dad who has learned them too.
There are great advantages in offering a program that includes parents, grandparents, or caregivers. The parents of this age group are truly at the most "reachable/teachable moment" for parent education.
For the young child it is normal to play alone, therefore we are not trying to develop a sense of group.

improve gross and fine motor skills
