Our Classes

boys-garden2.png

All our classes meet one time per week and children must be accompanied by a parent at every class.

Classes are grouped by age. Age groups and class times are structured around the changing needs (skills, interests, naps, etc.) of the children at various stages of development.  Children develop dramatically during these early years and we plan our classroom activities, as well as our parent discussion topics, to be age-appropriate and grow with your child. For more information, see our Frequently Asked Questions.
