Transition From Maternity/Paternity Leave

Going from being home each day snuggling your baby to being back at work full-time can be an emotional and confusing transition. We’ll discuss all of the ins and outs of getting ready for work and your little one’s new care situation, while also getting support from each other. Space is limited to keep the groups intimate and conversational. Please email me to sign-up or schedule a private workshop for one or more friends.

Next session will be on October 6th, pre-registration required.

Playful Learning: Education Through Infancy and Toddlerhood

Even if your child goes to preschool or daycare each day, there are still lots of fun play-based activities that you can easily set-up at home for more learning experiences. This workshop is a hands-on playgroup for your little ones where we will explore activities and techniques to help build skills like literacy, fine and gross motor, social, and cognitive thinking for children from age one to age three. Each session has a different focus and happens once a month. Sign up for one or the whole series! (If your baby is under a year old, feel free to contact me about attending.)

Last Friday of each month in Jericho; pre-registration required. 

Tuesday, October 10th in Burlington, pre-registration required.

SPACES STILL AVAILABLE (Burlington location), SIGN-UP NOW!

Playful Pedagogy: Learning Styles and Preschool Curriculum Models 

What type of curriculum is right for your child? Are they a Montessori Toddler? A Reggio Emilia Preschooler? This fast-paced workshop discusses simple and fun explanations on different learning styles and curriculum models to help narrow down which kind of school might be a good fit for your child and family. Corresponding activities are also outlined so no matter what kind of curriculum your child’s school offers, you can incorporate multiple styles when playing at home.

Next Session: Wednesday, October 18th (6-7 pm) at Birth Journeys. Pre-registration required.
