Very young children from 8 - 13 months of age along with their caregivers, join us weekly for an one hour "Baby Bunch" class. Parent/Toddler programming comes next. Our "little ones" who are now 14 - 24 months also meet weekly, but their time with us in "Temple Tots", (formerly known as Parent/Toddler), class increases to one and a half hours to include a variety of new and age-appropiate experiences.
Our "Movin' On Up" program follows, with a class especially designed for children age 20-24 months who are coming to school either 2 or 3 mornings a week "all by themselves." These youngsters are enjoying their first steps of independence.
