Play 2 Progress Mommy (& Daddy) & Me curriculum focuses on supporting parents and optimizing your baby’s growth. All sessions are led by a pediatric occupational therapist and cover topics such as infant development, sleep routines, feeding, proper fit of infant carriers and equipment, sensory strategies to help calm baby, and toy recommendations. Each week, we will also facilitate sensorimotor activities that promote cognition, visual motor skills, communication, and fine and gross motor development. Our goal is to provide a nurturing space where babies experience their first social group and to help parents feel well-equipped during baby’s often-complicated first year, while forming lasting friendships.

Parent & Me classes are held weekly for 8 weeks; all classes are 45 minutes in length. Classes have a maximum of 6 children, with a ratio of 3:1 children to teachers.
At Play 2 Progress, we recognize that all babies develop at slightly different rates - and that's totally normal! Our classes are organized by developmental milestone, rather than by chronological age, so you should choose a class based on what feels like the right fit at the time the class begins. Note that we start pre-crawlers at about 3 months old; if you have any other questions, feel free to contact us - we're happy to help!
