YOU CAN DROP IN ANY FRIDAY. Wonderful Ones is a unique program designed for parents and toddlers to encourage budding socialization skills, emotional development and cognitive growth in our playful, stimulating environment. While parents and children play, parents receive education and support on topics including toddler sleep, feeding and nutrition, social and emotional development, positive discipline, and media. We encourage parents to bring in issues and challenges from home to discuss with the group.  Handouts on these and other topics will be available at each session. With Cherie Tannebaum, NP,IBCLC.

Tue., July 21, 7:00 – 9:00 pm Preschool through early elementary school is a foundational period for children’s social and emotional development, a time when children are learning how to manage and express their emotions, empathize with others, form friendships, and communicate with peers. It also may be a time when relational aggression may first begin to surface, requiring early intervention to prevent them from continuing. This is the prime time to teach young children the specific social, emotional, and communication skills to prevent their involvement with relationally aggressive behavior.  We will discuss how to recognize, prevent, and, if necessary, intervene in these problem behaviors. With Andrea Travisano, MS.  Fee: $40.[For Expectant & New Parents][For Parents of Infants & Toddlers: Birth through Preschool][For Parents of Elementary School Aged Kids]
