Parent and Me Program

Brief Description

The toddler years are crucial for the development of trust and cooperation. Toddlers need spontaneous, real-life activities specific to their pace and stage of development. Toddlers actively learn from observing and participating with other children and adults, including teachers and parents.

The Parent & Me program at the Aurora Co-op is designed for your toddler to develop a sense of self, oral language skills, basic cognitive concepts, sensory-motor-skills and creative self-expression through play, art and music.

This class is developmentally appropriate for children who are 2 years old by September 30th. Classes meet one day a week: Wednesday from 9:15am to 10:45am. The parent participates with the child throughout the class time.
