Parent/Child Play Groups
Birth to 3 years old
Our Early Intervention Parent/Child Play Groups allow for your child to explore their world to improve coordination, encourage self-expression, promote listening skills and body awareness. Our circle-time promotes preschool routines. Whether jumping in the ball pit, or exploring at the sensory table, toddlers discover their creativity and how to work with others. Our Baby Signs program is incorporated into the program.
In our Toddlers in Motion Group, the goal for your child is not only to promote body awareness, but to develop the strength, balance and motor coordination to successfully and safely conquer their world! Activites include walking and jumping activities, climbing skills and much, much more! Music and movement exploration are the foundation of this therapeutic group.
