Featured Courses

  • Terrific Tykes 16-30 months

    Weekly Class: Registration Required Parents and tykes enjoy art, sensory, language, music, and other activities. Parent discussion is held in the classroom to begin the year. Separation will start slowly, working towards parents leaving for parent discussion during the second half of class. Notes for registration: Be prepared to select your income level, based on pre-tax household income, in order to determine your price for the class. Select the annual or monthly payment method, and your price will be displayed. Several surveys from the MN Department of Education are included at the end of your registration. (Surveys have no bearing on your registration, but it is helpful to our program if you complete them.) When you are given the choice to "continue shopping or checkout," select continue shopping to add another class or to add another child to the same class. At checkout you will be asked for a payment method (credit card or checking account), which will be charged only if you are placed in a class. When you check out and your registration is complete, you will receive a confirmation email. If you do not receive this email, your registration may not be processed.

  • Little Tots 12-24 months

In these classes, you and your child will have the opportunity for sensory play, socialization, songs, and movement. We will begin the year having parenting discussions in the classroom, but after winter break (based on student readiness) we will begin to spend increasing periods of time in the parent education room.
