Parents and children attend a weekly classroom session in a stimulating environment developed specifically for children one to two-years old. The focus is on physical development, nutrition, and emerging language. The parent's presence in the classroom provides comfort and security for the child; the classroom setting provides a unique opportunity for the very young child to be with peers, learning the very basic rule of society -- peaceful coexistence.
Parents attend an evening discussion group once a month. Topics of interest to parents of young children are presented. A trained family educator serves as the classroom teacher and is a resource for parents on parenting issues.
Class size is limited to ten children plus their adult. Students must be 1 by September 1 in order to be eligible for the class. Either or both parents, a babysitter, or relative may attend the weekly classes. A parent is expected to participate in the evening discussion group.
