Parent/Toddler

Our Parent/Toddler classes at WNS provide a unique opportunity for young children to begin the lifelong journey of inquiry and exploration with the safe support of a trusted adult.

Together we observe, hypothesize, and experiment to bring about the highest quality of learning experience for both the parent and child. Group experiences stretch and engage children with language, literacy, music, dramatic play, and social-emotional growth.

Our play-based Parent/Toddler classes are not only a wonderful opportunity for families to get to know the WNS community, but also a place for sharing and learning about parenting with peers and experts in the field of early childhood education.The Parent/Toddler program is an ideal bridge into the preschool years for both children and parents.

The 2016-17 Parent/Toddler classes will run once a week on Saturdays for 90 minutes in each of three 11 week sessions. Space is limited (10-12 children per class), and enrollment is based on a first-come, first-served basis.

Participation in the WNS Parent/Toddler program is not a prerequisite for, nor does it assure, admission into the WNS Preschool. Families who are interested in applying to our preschool program for the 2017-18 school year are encouraged to submit a preschool application.
The Parent-Toddler classes at WNS will be taught by a team of early childhood educators led by Kirstin Logsdon.
