Our Mommy and Me! classes are Parent Education classes that you attend with your child or grandchild. A Parent Education class is different from a play group, preschool, or "mommy and me" at the park. Anyone (mom, dad, grandparent, or caregiver) who is interested in learning about his/her child's development is welcome!
You are BOTH the student here!
Your child attends the class so that you may observe his/her behavior as s/he plays, works, and socializes with the other children. This also allows your teacher to work with your child and demonstrate different educational methods of presenting materials and information. As you observe your teacher and your child during "Teacher Time" think about how you might use some of the teaching methods at home.
Each class meets once per week in the morning and provides an opportunity for you to observe your child's growth and development and participate in a discussion group with other adults that share common concerns. Classes are designed to help you become aware of your role as your child's first and main teacher, find improved techniques for raising your child, and develop a better understanding of your child and parent-child relationships.
Not sure if a "Rinaldi Mommy and Me" class is right for you and your child? Feel free to "schedule a demo" for one of our open classes. Create an account on-line and then specify which class you would like to visit. This way you can check us out and see what our classes are all about. We will also be able to email a class syllabus and an orientation letter to you at that time.
Spring session begins March 4th and ends May 3rd. We are also offering a four week "Mini" session from May 7th through May 29th.
By popular demand our "Summer Family Fun Field Trip" Session 2019 will be offered once again! We travel to fun destinations that include State Parks, Museums, Outdoor water parks, and much more! Trips will be on Wednesdays beginning June 12th. Our final trip is July 24th. All meeting dates are Wednesdays with the exception of the second week of class when we will meet on Friday June 21st.
