The Bright Beginnings parent and child playgroup, hosted at Raising Astoria, has openings available in the current cohort for children ages 2-12 months. The group runs for 8 sessions and wraps up just in time for the holiday season. Discounts on drop-in registration rates are offered.
Utilizing a curriculum from the Ackerman Institute, this program aims to enhance participants’ parenting capacities in the following three areas: (a) developing a trusting emotional relationship and attachment; (b) promoting exploration and learning; and (c) guiding children toward interdependence. In addition to learning about child development, group activities are age appropriate to help enhance the children's sensory-motor, social, language, emotional, and cognitive development.
