SCHEDULE OF CLASSES ¦ 2016 – 2017
Good Night Moon
This children’s classic will be the basis for this class as it explores the themes and objects featured throughout the book.
On the Go
Whether it be by car, stroller, or metro, your infant is getting around. Join us as we enhance your infant’s understanding of how they get from one place to another. We will use the community and the museums to help illustrate movement and transportation.
March can often be a month of transition as we move from winter to spring. Your infant will explore some of the changes happening outside in the context of the seasons. This class will use our walk to the museum and the visit to illustrate the differences in the seasons, and will get your baby ready to learn more about spring in our upcoming sessions.
Spring has sprung, and so too have the flowers. Your infant will explore the characteristics of flowers and discover from where they come. Our museum visit will take our real life flower observations and apply to them to some Impressionist masterpieces.
Fruits and Veggies
Last month we explored flowers, and this month we will do the same with fruits and vegetables. Families will explore different types of produce with hands-on observations and maybe even some taste-testing!
The Big Bang
Ever wonder why babies put things in their mouths? It is because they learn by using their senses. In this class, we will focus specifically on the sense of sound and differentiating types of noises. We will also discover how to make those noises so be advised, it could get noisy!
NO CLASS – HOLIDAY
Do You See What I See?
Like our preceding class on sound, this workshop will connect with the infant’s senses by exploring the sense of sight. We will use our eyes to look at our environment, notice differences and similarities, and explore some amazing works of art.
