Bright Start Bambini Program
Parent Support/Toddler ExplorationRegistration Form
Ages: Children 18 through 36 months
Weekly: Fridays 9:00 – 10:30 am
Join us for our Bambini Group for toddlers and parents. Bambinis will explore various media and different kinds of materials outdoors and indoors with a toddler teacher while the parents will participate in an educational support group led by Dara Goldyne.
The group is designed to explore, educate and discuss parenting topics. Each week, parents will have the opportunity to ask questions regarding parenting and a specific topic will be presented. Previous topics have included the following: mindful parenting, guidance versus discipline, effective discipline strategies, self-care and sleep solutions. The class is a good support for parent education and will prepare children for transition to preschool.
