Preschool (24-48 Months)

Play & Parenting

The Loved Child offers a variety of unique weekly Developmental Play & Parenting Classes from the newborn period through the preschool years, where each class is designed to equally support both the children’s learning through play and to provide expert-lead parenting support.  Classes are organized with an optimal balance between group structured play, self-directed open-choice play, and an organized moment for caregivers to receive individual or group support around typical parenting concerns.

Supporting the abundant research on the importance of early literacy opportunities and the value of repetition in early learning, every TLC child, beginning with the Infant Class, is given a developmentally appropriate TLC Class Book to bring home for daily reading and to experience weekly at class Book Time.


Each weekly TLC class has a Developmental FocusParent Topic, and Group Developmental Activity–  an activity to highlight the weekly area of development (water play, arts & crafts, sensory play, musical movement etc.).  In advance of each class, families receive the TLC Weekly Newsletter with evidence-based resources supporting the developmental focus (for example, creative, fine/gross motor, cognitive, language, social/emotional, & nature development),  in addition to family-friendly articles on common parenting topics such as Sleep Challenges, Mealtime Struggles, Positive Discipline, and Toilet Training.   Home Ideas follow at the end of the week, which often include links to creative and trusted blog sites with activities specific to the reviewed area of development.  All these resources, often with adorable pictures from class, are also available on

Music & Movement

Come sing, dance, clap, stomp, shake, wiggle, laugh and jump with Jeff Jam at The Loved Child after nap time! Children (0-5 years), with a caregiver, will enjoy playing a variety of percussion instruments such as shaker eggs, rhythm sticks, tambourines and jingle bells. And, as current research in child development has shown, as you and your child learn and move to popular classic children’s songs, this musical experience will benefit all areas of your child’s development!

Each class is 45 minutes and limited to 15 families.
