NEW PARENT-TODDLER CLASS STARTING!  (14-24 months old)
MELROSE, MASS
6 weeks: Dates in May-July 2017 (dates below)

OPEN/FREE TRIAL CLASS MAY 21

COME CHECK IT OUT!

This 6 week session will be facilitated by Robin Einzig of Visible Child.  We will meet as a group for a low-key, child-led, relaxing session.  In the Visible Child approach, our role as parents is as observers first, and as responsive and respectful facilitators and communicators second.   In keeping with that approach, classes begin by parents siting around the perimeter, with toddlers free to explore toys and materials independently as they wish.  We try not to encourage them to do particular things, but trust that they will explore freely when they are ready.  In the meantime, we follow their lead.  If they want to sit by you (or on you), that’s absolutely fine.  They get to decide how and when to participate–there are no expectations for what they will do or not do.   As they say:  The Children Are The Curriculum.

Robin will facilitate issues that may arise, and model respectful, non-coercive intervention strategies if they come up.  We sit quietly and observe, taking this relaxing time not to focus so much on adult socialization or trying to get our children to do particular things, but to learn to quietly watch them with a keen observer’s eye, and see what we learn from standing back.  What do we learn about their development and who they are as people?  How do different children approach conflict or entering play?  How do they use materials?  We all observe for a while, and then, as the children continue to play, we discuss our observations, and talk about the development of children in this age group and strategies for challenges that parents may be facing.

Join us!  To read more about the approach, please check out Are Visible Child Parent-Child Classes For You and the Classes FAQ.

All classes limited to 8 parent-child pairs.

Sessions are 6 classes, 1 hour and 15 minutes each.  The cost for all six weeks is $150.  Drop in is occasionally available by prior arrangement only, at a cost of $25/session.  We will be meeting at a yoga studio in Melrose and we will hold at least one session at a local park.
