Plymouth, MN, United States, 2012/10/03 - Children’s Workshop Montessori announces the return of its Parent/Infant Class for area families starting on October 26. This two hour class is for children 8 weeks to 15 months with their caregivers.
The class will be set in a safe, beautiful environment that provides activities and materials for each individual child’s development. The mixed-age environment is a natural learning space which allows younger, non-mobile children to observe with curiosity the older children who are crawling, pulling up, walking, etc. The appropriate-sized furniture, movement apparatus, and social interactions within this community set the path for further learning.
Lead Toddler Community Guide, Heather Moran (Montessori trained, Certified Doula & Childbirth Educator) will facilitate and engage parents in conversations about development, nutrition, sleep patterns, toilet training as well as discuss methods for encouraging independence at this early stage.
“We’re very excited to offer this unique class to our community. As far as I know, there is nothing else like it in the Plymouth area.” says the Head of School, Nicholas Stocco,“Our Toddler Community has been going strong since the program began in 2008. We felt it was time to reach out to the very youngest members of our community.”
The Parent/Infant class will be held on Fridays, from October 26 to December 21 (no class November 23). Deadline to register is Wednesday, October 24. Cost is $150. Call Vanessa at 763-577-4244 to sign-up.
