PAL – Play And Learn – Parent/Tot Class
Fridays, 9:30 - 11 am | Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer Sessions

Our PAL program provides children, 18 months to 2.5 years, with an opportunity to explore a wide range of preschool activities, including sensory, motor, art, social, and language experiences, under the supervision of an early childhood teacher and their accompanying parent or significant adult. Emphasis is placed upon exposing children to fun and inviting activities in a small group setting and providing a social outlet for the children as well as their adult companion. Please contact Susie Valdez, Early Childhood Education Director, with any questions.
