What is You & Me?

Moms, Dads, Caregivers and Teachers will come together to learn, and play with their children. Together, we will discover what it really means to be a toddler! We'll discuss developmental phases, temperaments and more. This is a great introductory class for your child as they prepare to enter preschool!

Who should enroll?

You & Me is open to children ages 15 months to 2.5 years old and their caregivers. 

What can we expect to learn?

For your children, there will be lots of chances to explore, get messy and engage in art and sensory activities. Expect to play, play, play!


Caregivers will develop relationships with other caregivers who have similar interests in fine tuning parenting skills and will learn techniques that will create families that are respectful, cooperative and empowering through direct parental involvement.

What is the cost and how often do you meet?

The class runs 10 sessions and meets every Wednesday from 9 am - 11:30 am beginning February 19th. 

Cost is $30/session ($300 for the entire series) plus a one-time $50 enrollment fee. You are not required to commit to all 10 sessions, and paying per class is an option. Please email if you would prefer a fewer number of classes.
