This class explores--through readings and facilitated discussion--various themes related to the growth, development, and parenting of the very young child. Parents will learn simple songs and games to play with their babies, and develop their ability to quietly observe and interpret babies’ movements, gestures, and vocalizations. Classes also include a wholesome snack and opportunities for informal conversation.
The Moon Garden Program is appropriate for parents and their babies (infants to not-yet-crawling), expectant parents, grandparents, and caregivers. One or more adults may accompany the baby for the same cost. The Parent-Infant Program is offered in the fall and spring. Registration is handled on a first-come first-served basis.
The class runs for twelve weeks for 1.5 hours, once a week.
