3 Months – Crawling:
Fridays | 11 am-12:30 pm
In this class we will observe the progression from lying on the back to rolling and belly crawling, and the interplay between gravity and levity. What motivates the child’s movement? How do we meet the infant’s needs?
Crawling – Early Walking:
Fridays | 9 am-10:30 am
We observe how the child comes to higher and higher levels of movement, crawling, standing, walking. Social interactions come now more into play and exploring contact with other babies is part of this class.
Our Toddler classes are also RIE®-certified.
Younger Toddlers, age 12-24 months and walking:
Tuesdays | 9-10:30 am
We observe the increasing quality of movement and fine motor skills, self-directed exploration and discovery through play. Young toddlers still lack impulse control and we learn to work with them to build their social abilities as they interact with others. This class includes circle time and a simple organic snack.
Older Toddlers, age 24-36 months:
Thursdays | 9-11 am
We observe older toddlers gaining an understanding of how things work, beginning to demonstrate their thinking, and developing their play in a more imaginative way. As they gain impulse control, we see their increasing interpersonal skills. This class includes circle time, an organic snack and outdoor play time.
Mixed-age Toddlers, age 12-36 months and walking:
Wednesdays | 9-10:30 am
Here, toddlers of different ages enjoy self-directed exploration, gross and fine motor skills, and discovery through play. Children learn about themselves through interacting with children of slightly different ages. This class includes circle time and an simple, organic snack.
