Playgroups Discovery Classes
Parker River Community Preschool offers several Discovery Classes per semester geared towards children ages 15 months through 6 years. Classes are open to currently enrolled students as well as toddlers, preschoolers, and their parents from the surrounding community. Classes are a great opportunity to extend your child’s preschool learning or offer your child more opportunities to explore a particular interest. If your child is not yet in our Preschool, Discovery Classes offer a chance for you and your child to socialize with other local families.

Our Discovery Classes are developed based on the same philosophy as our Preschool Classrooms and encourage relationships, hands-on exploration, and celebration of the natural world. All classes are run by experienced instructors and children’s learning and fun is documented to share with family and friends.

Classes may run an entire semester (10-15 weeks) or just as a one-time workshop. Classes may be multi-age groupings or divided into separate sessions by age depending on interest. Parents are encouraged to share their ideas for future classes!

Class Descriptions:

After School Studio:

This afternoon hands-on art class is for children ages 15 months-6 years old. An experienced instructor will guide children in the exploration of a variety of art media such as paint, wire, clay, watercolors, recycled materials, and more.

YOGA for Tots:

Lead by an experienced yoga instructor, parents and their children will twist, bend, and breathe their way through this class! Yoga is a great way to exercise, relax and connect with your child.

Creative Movement:

Toddlers and preschoolers wiggle, dance, and shimmy while working on developmentally appropriate skills such as self-expression, teamwork, motor skills, and more.

Little Musicians:

Children join together to learn early music skills such as rhythm and repetition while having fun making music with a variety of instruments. Music classes for young children are great ways to strengthen early literacy skills!

Baby & Me Playgroup:

Babies and their moms and dads are invited to come together for stories, songs, and socialization. This class is lead by an experienced early childhood educator who facilitates rich play and conversation in a baby-proof, engaging classroom.

Discovery Classes are held in our classrooms, outdoor art studio, and playground space.

Parents are welcome to attend classes with their children or remain on-site through the duration of the class.
