Our Parent & Tot classes are a wonderful introduction to structured classroom experiences! Together we explore, and learn independence to become ready for un-parented classes in the future. The more you engage and interact in the class, the more your tot will want to participate and have fun too! Our classes are taught with parent education in mind. Many activities will be taught in a way that makes it easy for you and your tot to play at home!
Parent & Tot FAQs
What if my child doesn’t participate in the class?
We expect that children under 3 years old may not always participate, and be shy. Remember, your tot is walking into a new space, with a new adult giving them instructions. There may be a lot of other children and adults in that same space, it can be overwhelming! Many children prefer to observe first, and do everything at home.
Can I bring my baby?
We don’t mind your baby being with you in the class in their car seat, stroller, or on you in a carrier. In the case you find that is impacting your experience with your tot, we have a wonderful drop in child-care centre called Kids Korner, where your baby will be well cared for at great rates.
Can I register my child if they are younger or older than the posted age?
At this age range especially a lot of development happens in a short period of time. We will make age exceptions within a month of the start date of the program. If your child is older than the posted age, and you feel it would be a better fit to be in a parented class, we will absolutely accommodate those requests.
How will information about classes be communicated?
We communicate through email for all class information including our Session Welcome Letter, Long Weekend Reminders, Cancelled Classes, and Changes to your Class. Please ensure your email is up to date with us through your online account or contacting Guest Services.
How do I contact the Programs Management Team?
