We are pleased to let you know that our Little Sprouts Parent Child classes will be provided virtually and will begin next week as planned via the Zoom platform and Google Classroom. We are offering all Little Sprouts classes on the same day/time for the virtual Spring Little Sprouts class.
Ms. Tierney, our Little Sprouts teacher, has prepared a wonderful virtual experience for you and your child to enjoy. The class will consist of several parts:
- Weekly live online class for children and parents: 30 minutes, Wednesdays from 9:30 -10:00am. Families will drink tea, sing songs, listen to a story and/or make a craft – all together with Ms. Tierney. This class is “live” but not interactive.
- Optional weekly live online meeting for parents only: 1 hour (day TBD) from 7:00 – 8:00pm. A variety of parenting and support topics will be discussed. Please send your topic ideas to Ms. Tierney! Also, one-on-one parent support meetings with Miss Tierney are available upon request.
- Weekly updated online content for the children in the Little Sprouts Google Classroom for you to use as you would like: crafts, recipes, songs, games, and stories.
- Weekly updated online content for adults in the Little Sprouts Google Classroom: articles, links, and ideas.
Our virtual Little Sprouts class is open to families with children ages 6 months – 3.5 years old. The cost of the program is $120. The spring session of Little Sprouts will run for 7 weeks from April 15 – May 27, 2020. Please register here.
- Class size is limited and registration is first come, first served.
