Parent & Child

Program Overview

Approximate Age: Up to 3 years old

The Parent & Child Group is for children in their beginning stage of conductive education. A parent or caregiver stays with the child at all times, working directly with the conductors. The program is very stimulating, fun, and intensive. The focus is on teaching the parents or caregivers to work with their child in a playful manner. Adults also learn ways to encourage their child’s intellectual, physical, and emotional development. The intensive program is scheduled for three sessions per year but will run more frequently if there is interest and a minimum of 3 applications for any given session throughout the year.
