Early Childhood Center
Make WNS a part of your child’s life from the very beginning
The WNS Parent/Toddler classes provide a unique opportunity for young children to begin the lifelong journey of inquiry and exploration with the safe support of a trusted adult. Our Parent/Toddler classes are available for children 18-32 months.
Our play-based Parent/Toddler classes are not only a wonderful opportunity for families to get to know the WNS community but also a place for sharing and learning about parenting with peers and experts in the field of early childhood education. The Parent/Toddler program is an ideal bridge into the preschool years for both children and parents.

Toddlers discover the natural world through gardening, sensory play, and natural materials. The class culminates in a circle time that incorporates music, dancing, and stories.
Parent and Me Art Explorations Class – Tuesdays
In this class, there is a focus on sensory and art experiences, clay, paint, wind, light and shadow, and other expressive materials that are explored in our school art studio. Toddlers and their parents build friendships and community in an environment that encourages investigation, curiosity, imagination, and experimentation. The class culminates in a circle time that incorporates music, dancing, and stories followed by a short outdoor experience.
