Large Motor Development – crawling through first steps
This class should be called, trying to keep up with my crawler! This class is for babies who are actively crawling, pulling up and getting ready to take his first steps. Is your child moving and cruising and all over the house?! Crawling is an important stage in development and research has found the crawling stage is connected to later linguistic skills. Help support this developmental period by enrolling in our class just for crawlers. They will be busy pulling up, pushing carts, rolling balls crawling over the bridge and through tunnels. This class is to celebrate your child’s need to move and strengthen his muscles so his transition to walking will be at his own pace.
The whole child development is important at all stages so we will continue to offer intellectually challenging activities that employ fine motor skills and support his widening vocabulary.
Montessori for Young Children – 14 months and walking to three years
Parents step back and see independence blossom! In this Parent and Child class, your child’s innate drive to learn will guide him through a series of sensorial and intellectual experiences. Learn how to support his explosion into language and his desire to build relationships.
Appealing to your child’s natural desire to explore we will help strengthen his hands through eye-hand coordination activities, deepen his ability to concentrate through engaging and purposeful experiences, and build his social awareness with group activities.
Bake with Me – 18 months to three years
This class is loved by children and parents alike. Together we bake one item to be tasted during our group snack. Each child has the opportunity to contribute to the baking and patience is practiced while others have a turn. This class is a great opportunity for parents to witness the developing will and the amazing control young children have when they are engaged in a meaning full and community-oriented activity. While our delicious snack is baking, the children are free to explore the engaging and educational activities on the shelves. Once the snack is complete, the children set the table and sit together to taste their creation. This class comes with a set of recipes so that you can take the recipes home and bake them together again and again.
