Age: under 12 months on August 31st. (Note that the child may not attend prior to turning three months.)
Parent Educator: TBD
Class Meeting Times: In 2020-2021, the Infants I class will meet from 1:15-2:45pm on Mondays. The Infants II class will meet from 9:00-10:20am on Thursdays. Typically families register for one class or the other (though it is possible to register and pay for both). For Infants classes, you and your baby always attend class together.
The Infant classes at Queen Anne Cooperative Preschool are designed as a supportive, fun, and dynamic learning environment to encourage and enhance this special time for both you and your baby.
What you can expect for you and your baby
Children come to class with a parent, grandparent or other caregiver weekly to engage in a fun, interactive experience. Our teacher facilitates the children’s development and learning community by offering:
- Age appropriate classroom, toys and activities.
- Circle time with brain-building songs, movement and activities
- Small and large motor development activities
What you can expect for yourself
Parents (and other caregivers) come to our classes to learn more about child development, explore their own goals for their family while deepening the parent/child bond and strengthening communication and parenting skills.
Parent Education and Resources
Our Parent education instructors provide curriculum and discussion incorporating current research with the personal concerns and the diverse experiences of our community of parents. Over the course of the school year you can expect topics such as Early Child Development, Nutrition, Sleep Challenges, Temperament, Guidance, Adjusting to Parenthood and more.
Meet other parents with children going through similar milestones, joys and challenges. One of the many benefits parents experience while participating in co-op are the long-term family friendships that often develop.
Infants under 1 year of age as of August 31 may enroll in the infant class; including those born after August 31 of the current academic year.
One caregiver for each enrolled child must enroll with QACP for the Parent Education course. Parent Education occurs during the infant class meeting time for our infants program.
