Guess what? We are giving away an 8-week session of Creative Parenting Classes for this fall! Classes start in September!
I had the pleasure of enrolling my son in the 3-year-old* Creative Parenting Classes session in Newtown and was very pleased with the classes! After enrolling in the class we were sent a schedule and some paperwork about the classes. When we arrived in class we were greeted by two teachers who work in unison throughout the classes. Our classes consisted of a “meet and greet”, art time, toy time, circle time with weather & calendar time, music & dancing, and then storytime with a snack. It is a very fulfilling experience with all of the activities and they are timed perfectly so that you don’t feel rushed, but, the kids don’t get bored either. The classes were my son’s first introduction to group activities with other children and he really came out of his shell throughout the 8-week session. If you are debating enrolling, I say give it a shot, you won’t be disappointed!
*The 3-year-old classes are 1 1/2 hours and the younger classes are 1 hour. More details are below:
