 FALL SESSION 2022

September 12 - December 8

 

Age Range: 2 months to 14 months

Class Structure: 45 minutes each week

Cost: $20 registration fee for each family paid at registration, $183 for 12 weeks of classes (3 payments of $61).

 

Fall Themes

Little Red Caboose (September): All aboard! Little Red Caboose is all about—you guessed it—trains, trains, trains! Hitch on up for a chuggity-chug voyage through train sounds, train movements, train activities, and train songs. Woo-woo!

Old MacDonald (October): Time to tune up baby’s listening ears, because we’re off to the farm! With a hee-haw here and a cock-a-doodle there–when Old MacDonald gets involved, you never know whom you might run into.

Nighty Night (November): It’s nighttime, but not quite bedtime yet! Let’s use our vision to explore the night. We’ll see the moon and the twinkling stars, and say hello to Wee Willie Winkie and the man in the moon! Finally, it’s time to get ready for beddy-bye—with bathtime, a little playtime, and then it’s time to say Nighty Night!

 

 

WINTER/SPRING SESSION 2023

January 9 - May 4

 

Age Range: 2 months to 14 months

Class Structure: 45 minutes each week

Cost: Registration fee is $20 per family. Tuition (15 classes), books, and digital music is $260 (4 payments of $65).

 

Winter/Spring Themes

Mama Goose (January): Nursery rhymes endure for a reason. They are quirky, rhymey, and memorable–and are also magical for speech and language development, as they work to “wire” the brain for communication before speech even begins! What bliss to share something with your child that your parents shared with you–or better yet, to learn and share one for the very first time!

Peekaboo! (February): A house with a baby is a house full of love. (And fun…and toys…and noise!) Peekaboo! peeks into the “1, 2, 3, punch” patterns of repetition, anticipation, and surprise. Have fun with vocal play, sensory exploration, and learning through play.

Bluebird, Bluebird (March): Chirp! Tweet! Quack! This unit is a sound-rich flight (of fancy) into the sky, where you’ll explore birds, feathers, and the outdoors.

Nature Walk (April): Let’s explore the wonders and sensations of the outdoors!  We’ll use our eyes to look all around, and our ears to listen to all of the sounds we hear.  Plus, we’ll touch, and smell, and move, and play! There’s no feast for the senses quite like a Nature Walk.
