Is your child ready for more playtime with peers?
My creative playgroups help toddlers discover the new and exciting world of peer relationships. Through games, music, movement and dance, I support them to discover their world and each other.
What the children learn:
- how to ask for what they want
- helping each other
- how to play together
- what to do when they don’t agree
I support the children to play, care for themselves and learn how to be friends. I help them recognize basic social needs, like closeness, safety, and playing together. And perhaps most importantly, all of those lessons happen through play and having a good time together.
The children make art, dance, sing, play outside, invent games and eat together in a safe and nurturing environment. I skillfully improvise with the children, sometimes following and sometimes leading their creative play.
