Teacher as Bridge

In each class, one Group Leader with a PhD and two preschool teachers work with a small group of about 8-12 children to help articulate and narrate first experiences of play, socialization and sensory exploration with the comfort of parents being nearby.


Nestled in our beautiful Pine Street Campus, the toddler group is designed for children as young as 16 months of age to begin the journey of becoming ready for preschool life.


This class consists of indoor and outdoor play, snack, story time and circle time for children. The group leader, a licensed PhD, facilitates a parent discussion and responds to questions about parenting and child development issues. Examples of topics range from preschool readiness, sibling relationships, diet and nutrition, transitions, sleep, socialization, language and motor development.

One day each week, 1 hour and 45 minute class.

*A Note About Caregivers: We love to get to know all parents. That said, nannies, grandparents, and other caregivers are also welcome. We recognize and value the important role that these caregivers play in families' lives.

The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.
