MOMMY & ME

Mommy and me programs allow a toddler and mother to interact together with educational and physical activity curriculums in a classroom setting as well as outdoors.  Curriculums consist of painting, learning numbers and letters, singing, dancing and outdoor recreation activities. We also offer Parenting Classes which teach parents news skills that help lower arguments and family conflicts through positive reinforcement, active supervision and a personal action plan for their situation.

PLAY AREAS & SPLASH PADS

A playground or play area specifically designed for children.  Modern playgrounds often have recreational equipment which help children develop physical coordination, strength, and flexibility, as well as providing recreation and enjoyment. A splash pad is an area for water play that has no standing water. Splash pads are fun especially for younger children. Parents must supervise their children at all times while using the splash pad.
