Parenting Center Classes Fall 2024

TOTALLY TOTS  Ages 23–36+ months (WITHOUT an Adult)

“Totally Tots” is the most enriching, educational and enjoyable part-time separation program for your two year old. Our acclaimed program includes thematic lessons, creative play, crafts, storytime, music, circle time, snack and time in our beautiful air-conditioned gym. Give your child the opportunity to experience school with a part time drop-off program now, before they attend the free 3K program next September (which is over 6 hours daily). The skills they learn this year will make them comfortable in a school setting and give their early education a jump start. Spaces are very limited. Please arrange an appointment with Robin Kaufman prior to registering if you are new to the program.
