Parent / Child
Baby Classes in the Warwick, New York and Vernon New Jersey Area
This baby class treats you and your child to fun as you gain support and information from others facing similar parenting joys and concerns. The first portion of the program is spent exchanging ideas on a planned parenting topic while the children enjoy toys in our parent created “human playpen”. We have a long list of popular topics – sleeping through the night, separation anxiety, medical care choices, babysitting….to name a few.
Our fun songs and puppets encourage children to focus on a teacher figure and engage in group activities. The free playtime portion of this class takes place in our creatively designed play room and fosters independence while enabling caregivers time to connect with other parents.
The class ends with a parachute activity which keeps everyone entertained and leaves the children excited about returning each week.
Each class meets for 55 min 1 or 2 days per week.
With a parent or guardian, children take their first steps to becoming a student. They learn to:
• Transition from one fun activity to another
• Connect and focus on a teacher figure
• Gain an understanding of their personal boundaries
• Appropriately use art supplies and toys
Each class is centered around a theme (counting, being brave of the dark, colors, shapes…) and is taught in a fun-filled lesson using art, puppetry, music, movement, free play and a story. As the children play they take steps towards becoming a good friend and classmate.
Each class meets for 55 minutes, one day per week.
