Parent-Child Classes

Garden Gate Playgroup

Age: Infant to 3 years old

The earliest years of a child’s life are full of wonder, both for the growing child and their parents.  Join us in a welcoming and nurturing atmosphere where you can slow down, relax and simply observe the magic of your child’s play.

What you can expect:

  • You and your child will be welcomed into a warm and safe space filled with enriching and developmentally appropriate toys for infants and toddlers who are grouped according to age.
  • You can sit, relax, and enjoy the company of fellow parents/caregivers while being served a hot cup of tea, parents will have plenty of time to connect and share, as well as quiet time to decompress and explore the value of observation to see and understand what their babies/children are doing and how they are learning as they play.
  • Participate in, and learn sweet lullabies and lap games that the children love and that also provide a nourishing and fun way to connect with your little one.
  • Children will be provided a simple snack of fruit and cheese depending on their age.  Dietary restrictions and preferences are honored and respected.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child(ren), if you have any questions please reach out to us, we would love to hear from you.
