Parent-Child classes are specially designed for children 18 to 36 months old with an accompanying parent or caregiver.

One six-week session will be offered this spring, meeting on Mondays from 9 to 11:00 a.m., April 7 – May 19, 2014.

The Parent-Child program offers a sanctuary of safe play for children and an oasis of peace and friendship for parents. The children play freely, enjoying simple group activities. They experience puppetry and storytelling while their parents are nearby making toys or crafts and sharing their concerns and questions as parents of young children. This will be a valuable opportunity to meet other parents with similar questions, ideas, and resources.

Classes are led by early-childhood educator Cherry Short-Lee, who has decades of experience as a teacher and mother, as well as a wealth of wisdom in the areas of early-childhood education, handcrafting, healthful homemaking, and parenting.

The fee for the six-week session is $150. A sibling over six months old may be enrolled for half of the tuition. Enrollment deadline is Monday, March 31.
