Parent & Child Activity Class

Growing Together

Parent & Child Activity Class 

A weekly workshop for parents and their 2- & 3-year-olds,
presented by Hope Christian Preschool
in partnership with the Poway Unified School District.


Hope Christian Preschool is proud to partner with the Poway Unified School District to offer this weekly workshop for 2- and 3-year-old children and their parents.
Growing Together will equip parents with information about the development of their child's language, pre-literacy, math, and reading skills.  They will also gain valuable insight into their child's social and emotional development.  Children will explore a variety of activity stations, learn songs and rhymes, and try out new skills and strategies that will stimulate their growing brains as well as their growing bodies.  The morning will include indoor and outdoor activities, snack time, and group time.
Growing Together is an opportunity for parents to receive the support of an experienced teacher while networking with other parents.  Children will enjoy the chance to explore their world and make new friends.

From the NAEYC Brochure "Play is Fundamental":
Play is Part of Life

Through play children explore their world, discover how to get along with others, test their skills and muscles, try out new ideas, and feel competent enough to try different activities.  Curiosity.  Self-esteem.  Language.  Problem-solving.  Mathematics.  Cooperation.  Endurance.  These are just a few of the many kinds of learning involved in play.  Observations of your own children's play will soon confirm how much they are learning.


Some of our play is more or less structured:  following the rules of a game, acting out a favorite story, or perfecting a complicated dive.


But often the most fun - and the best learning experience for children - occurs when children choose what they want to do.  This is called free or self-directed play.  Perhaps it is playing with a doll-house, pasting scraps of tissue paper and lace on paper, or skating on the sidewalk.


In all productive play, the fun is in the doing.  Children need lots of time to pursue their own ideas, to do things their own way, to see what it's like to be someone else.   Adults can encourage children to play in ways that are valuable by setting the stage for them and, when appropriate, extending the children's ideas during play.
