Classes for children aged in utero to 2 years 9 months will nurture the children’s growth and learning while providing support and guidance for families as they begin to establish routines and encourage the healthy development of growing children.

Once a week, parents or grandparents bring their young children to the warm and welcoming environment of the Sweet Pea Nursery room and yard to play together, to prepare a snack, work on seasonal craft projects, celebrate the seasons, and enjoy comfortable conversations about child development and parenting.

The two hour class is built on a rhythmical structure of work and imaginative play to develop skills for healthy social interactions. It provides an opportunity for parents to observe children involved in spontaneous free play, and to discuss healthy and beneficial parenting practices.
