ECFE Class Descriptions
NEW! Growing Kids, Growing Parents
School Year-Long Class, 0-5 years Do you like the idea of staying with the same ECFE class all school year? Join us for a year-long class with the same families and teaching staff for both semesters! Explore ECFE with your child and watch how your child will grow with confidence and independence while making new friends. During parent discussion, we will focus on positive parenting techniques (including conscious discipline) and developmental milestones, as well as many other class topics based on parents’ interests and needs.
Step Into Learning
0–5 years Step into learning with your child as they explore and learn. Infants through pre-kindergarteners will have opportunities for sensory play, social interaction and building developmental skills. Grown-ups will have time to meet with a parent educator to discuss the celebrations and frustrations that come with the parenting journey.
Managing with Multiples
0–5 years Are you the parents of twins, triplets, more? Imagine a place your children can sing, play, make messes and meet new friends… with extra hands to help you! Now imagine time for you to sit down, relax and discuss the unique challenges you face as parents of multiples.
Pop-In & Play
0-5 years Pop-In & Play provides a good way for families to check out ECFE. It’s a great option for those whose schedules don’t allow a weekly commitment or families who would like to add another fun day of class. Parent/child activities, circle time and gym time are always part of the plan! No registration required but payment is available online.
Infant Pop-In & Play
0-12 months, non-separating These FREE playtimes provide an opportunity to meet other parents with babies. Explore our infant/toddler classroom and talk about the joys and challenges of parenting with a licensed parent educator. Come to just one or all; pop-in playtime is a flexible format to meet the needs of busy parents and give families an opportunity to learn about ECFE. No registration required.
12–24 months Learning takes place for your one year old as they are moving and exploring, often not far from their parent. We will discuss the wonders and challenges of your child with our parent educator.
Terrific Twos & Thrilling Threes
24–48 months Independence, language, problem solving and social skills are emerging during these ages. The classroom will foster all these developing skills, and you will value the parent discussion where you can learn, share and appreciate this stage of parenting.
0-5 years Whether you have one child or more, an infant or a 5 year old, this class offers an opportunity to learn in a multi-age setting. Learn together through parent/child activities, circle time, music, stories and parent discussion. Parenting topics will include the importance of everyday parenting.
