Thank you for joining us! below are various age groups
1 day - 9 months
Our Belly Babies will love cuddling with mommy while playing with various sensory materials and toys, encouraging them to stretch their muscles, move their heads side-to-side and explore fun and engaging tummy time activities. This is a wonderful way for mom's to connect and socialize, exchange tips with each other, learn American Sign Language and feel part of a loving and supportive community. This is a beautiful mommy support group and great way to bond with new friends.
Class meets on Tuesdays 2pm
Class packages must be attended consecutively.
9 months - 14 months
Cute Crawlers will enjoy playing with mommy, daddy, or caregiver with various sensory materials and toys. They are just becoming aware of this big world around them and what better way to start their journey than with feather dreams, big bubbles and squishy sensory bags filled with treats. They will also begin their American Sign Language lessons and warming those little fingers up to tell you exactly what they want.
Class meets on Fridays at 2pm
12- 18 months
Our Wobbly Walkers are on their way to explore their hearts out! Let's encourage them to gain some independence and go on fun adventures digging through gooey green critter pits or searching through rainbow rice for lost treasure with their new friends! They will also be learning tons of descriptive words and American Sign Language too.
18 months - 2 1/2 years old
Our Daring Dashers need to investigate everything and see how it all works! They will be invited to go on their own, make some friends, and get their hands and feet dirty learning how different textures feel and smell as they squeeze, dig, pull, pour, shovel, and fill all sorts of things. Along the way, they will be picking up an array of new vocabulary in each sensory adventure.
2 - 4 years old
We're so excited to begin classes with our chattering bugs! Our Jabbering Jammers will add an array of new vocabulary to their repertoire and love to talk your ears off about all the fun sensory activities they did in class that day. They will be encouraged to articulate what they are experiencing as they play with their fabulous friends.
4-5 years old
Our Wordy Wizards will create magic! They will learn to communicate with each other using American Sign Language and engage in wizardly activities using magic potions! We will paint with our feet, create fabulous process art pieces, make colored rice from scratch, jump around hot lava, build marshmallow castles and pompom catapults, and so much more!
Class meets on Tuesdays at 3:30pm for a full hour.
