Parent Child Classes

Play Studio's Parent Child Classes provide an inviting, peaceful environment for babies and toddlers to explore and a chance for parents to connect, observe and share. 

While the children discover the space and materials, parents enjoy a relaxing venue while participating in conversation about parenting and observing as their child’s development unfolds. 

We explore common parenting topics with guidance from RIE’s Educaring® approach and shared wisdom:

  • Reading baby’s cues and responding

  • The natural development of movement

  • Crying, sleeping, feeding/eating

  • Speech and language development

  • How babies learn discipline

  • Developing strategies for challenging times

  • Nurturing our babies for a secure future

  • Setting up your environment

  • Diapering and toilet learning
