Each weekly TLC class has a Developmental Focus, Parent 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 facebook.com/thelovedchild.

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.
Summer Series: 8 Sessions, June 20th – August 15th (No class on July 4th)

Children’s yoga classes incorporate stories, games, songs and verse while introducing little yogis to asanas (postures), breathing exercises and yoga philosophy.
