Mindful parenting is about bringing your conscious attention (and your sense of humor!) to your interactions with your child. Join us for this two-part parenting workshop
Part 1: Mindful Parenting through the Holidays: The holidays can be full of joy, but also full of stress! If you feel like you can’t relax or you’re running on empty, now is the perfect time to pause and make time for self-care and stress management. Connect with other parents while practicing techniques based on mindfulness and self-compassion. Held on Thursday, December 13th
Part 2: Mindful Parenting in the New Year: If your New Year’s resolution is to yell less and enjoy parenting more, than this workshop is for you! Understanding your child’s challenging behavior – and your own stress response – will help you learn to deal with challenging moments more empathically and effectively. Held on Thursday, January 10th

Jan 9th - March 20th
$300- 10 week session
Spanish with Linguakids is fun! Research shows that children who are exposed to a foreign language after the age of 10 will most likely never speak it like a native. That’s why it is so important for children to be exposed to another language during their “critical period." Linguakids’ goals are to teach a new language, introduce a new culture, and have fun at the same time! Through engaging songs, games, arts and crafts activities, read alouds, and much more, your child will learn basic vocabulary and how to speak with a flawless accent. Classes are taught with complete immersion in Spanish, where students will be encouraged to speak and repeat, as they build everyday life vocabulary.
Classes are 45 minutes in length designed for the 3-4.5/5 yr old age group. Or 60 minutes in length for the 5-8 age group. 10 week session: January 9th - March 20th (No class Feb 20th)

2019-2020 school year
A young toddler (18-36 months) pre-academic school drop-off class. The Little Red Toddler Play School is an alternative for a parent or caregiver who is home with their child but also wants to give their child a pre-nursery school experience on a part-time basis. Created based on the values of exploration, experimentation and material-based learning guided by the individual developmental needs of young toddlers. Through play, art, literature, science, music, and movement the children will not only be learning pre-academic and social skills, but will also develop a sense of self-expression, self-possession, and joy in learning. Anna believes that play is the invaluable work of children and holds this at the core of the curriculum. She also believes that a positive first school experience is vital in setting up a lifelong love of education and learning.
Toddler Play School runs for the 2019-2020 school year. A $200 Registration fee is required to secure your spot. Refundable until May 1st. Small Class size of 5-6 kids, 1 teacher and 1 assistant. Choose either the morning program, or the afternoon program. $425/month
