Our parenting classes are designed to facilitate the parents’ role in their child’s growth and development within a variety of learning opportunities. Parent and child attend class together, once a week for 2.5-3 hours.

 

Infant classes are centered around discussion of infant development and common concerns as well as opportunities for music and playtime with the babies. There is also time for socialization among parents.

 

Toddler classes for 13-17 month olds and 18-30 month olds and their parents have a parent discussion component as well as indoor and outdoor free play, art experiences and beginning teacher time activities.

 

Our infant and toddler classes are taught by specialists who understand young children’s development and are experienced in providing guidance to both parents and children.

 

In our classes we:

• Emphasize the role of the parents as the child’s first and most important teacher

• Encourage parents to develop confidence in their parenting abilities

• Emphasize respect for personal family and cultural values

• Encourage positive and realistic expectations for parents and children

• Provide guidance and insight to parents in a supportive group setting

• Develop lasting friendships among parents and children

 

Registration will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 6 starting at 10:30 at the Preschool Office. You will need to bring your child’s birth certificate or official record of date of birth and a copy of Covid vaccination of the person who will be bringing the child to class. Please contact the Preschool Office at office@covpreschool.org or phone 310.670.5758 for further information.
