What shall I bring?
Please bring the usual contents of your diaper bag for an afternoon outing. Studio June provides a changing table and private bathroom. If possible, please do not bring strollers or carseat carriers as the space in our room is quite limited. If you are attending Montessori for Young Children or Bake with Me, you may consider bringing a change of clothes for your child.
What shall we do when we arrive?
Please remove your shoes and place them in the storage area jin the back hallway. Then choose an area of the classroom to start with your child. Pre-mobile baby’s can be placed on a Movement Mat to play. They often like to start under a Mobile or in front of the mirror. Mobile babies can be placed on the floor and begin to explore independently. If you child is walking, let him/her enter the room independently. When your child has chosen an activity, encourage him to take the whole activity to a table to work. When he/she is done, please return the item to the proper shelf for the next child to use.
What if my child puts a toy in his mouth?
If this happens, when he is done mouthing the toy, please dunk the item in the natural sanitizer in the blue bin on the shelf on the wall. Then place it on the towel to air dry. Please place used towels, fabric toys, and other cloth items in the laundry bin provided.
What if my child is sick?
If your child is coughing, sneezing, has visible yellow/green mucus, has a fever or is generally not well, please stay home from class. It is important to keep everyone as healthy as possible and children learn best when they feel their best. Children should be fever free for 24 hours before returning to class.
What if my child is hungry or thirsty?
Nursing moms, please feel free to nurse or bottle-feed your baby whenever you feel he/she needs it. If you would like to offer your child solid food, please use the table and chair in the reception area. In our classes for walking children, a snack is served. Please encourage your child to wait until snack is served to eat. If he/she is thirsty, water is available for drinking, please ask your instructor.
What if I need to reach the instructor?
You can reach our instructors at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 832-904-9181. Please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Can I use my mobile phone in class?
We prefer for you to use this time to stay present with your child. It may be easiest to tuck your mobile phone in your bag in the cubbies. However, if you would like to document your child’s experience, we don’t mind if you snap a picture or video of your child in class. Please be mindful of avoiding other families in your pictures. And of course, if you choose to share on social media, tag us! @thestudiojune! We always love seeing the fun you are having and sharing.
