Our Classes

All Classes are grouped by age and meet once a week for two hours, except as noted below for the Baby Play class.  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.
