Caregivers and their little ones interact, play, and sing songs while learning simple socialization skills like sharing, taking turns, and experiencing sitting together for circle time. A happy time! A playdate of sorts. The class is set up with varied “work stations” that range from painting, play dough, a sensory table, and blocks, among others, to make learning and exploration as tactile as possible for this age group of children.
