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
