Inspire Independence and Sustain Love of Learning

(Birth to 5)

Early childhood can be an inspiring yet confusing stage for parents. Our children strive to do things on their own, yet often lack the skills to get the job done. They sometimes want to retreat to our laps, but at other times are ready to take on the world by themselves. As a preschool parent, you are probably dealing with plenty of daily challenges while enjoying your child’s interest in learning about the world.

 

You may wonder: How do we help children become more independent while still feeling supported and connected to us? And how can we sustain their exuberant curiosity that we know can become school success as they grow older? 

 

After this class, you will be able to: 

  • Help your child grow to be more independent and cooperative while strengthening your parent-child connection

  • Use specific, effective feedback to help your child grow into an enthusiastic lifelong learner

  • Flash Class - Technology and young children: How much is too much?

Are you sometimes overwhelmed by your child's feelings?

Does your child have trouble verbalizing his/her emotions?

  • Respond to children’s emotions effectively
