The Learning Train offers several different parent/child classes for children six months through four years. The activities are designed to improve balance and coordination and introduce sensory stimuli while reinforcing good social skills in a group play environment. The Learning Train also incorporates music and early literacy skills into our age-appropriate activities to help develop the cognitive, physical and social skills of children as they play.
Baby Chuggers (6 months-12 months) Focus on sensory exploration and visual and auditory development. Activities include listening to and learning first songs, tummy time, flashlight play, and discovery and exploration time. Babies will advance to learn about cause and effect relationships and will develop physically through play using soft play equipment such as steps, inclines, parachute play and more. Parents will be able to discuss their child’s development and ask questions during this class.
Little Engines (12 months-18 months) Focus on communication with parents and peers. Observe parents sharing with others and taking turns while playing. Using soft play equipment, children will practice balance and coordination, and will have time to explore and discover tunnels, slides, and more. Parents watch how their children interact and communicate with them and their peers. Songs and books enrich emerging language.
Toddler Trains (18 months-24 months) Focus on patterns and sequences with shapes and colors. Become problem solvers through discovery games and activities. Children practice climbing techniques, balancing, and sliding and will focus on language skills and social interaction. Introduction to shapes, numbers, and the alphabet.
Kiddy Conductors (2 years-3 years) Focus on creativity to support symbolic thinking using pretend play, art, music, storytelling, literature, and drama. Children continue to practice climbing techniques, balancing, and sliding and will focus on language skills and social interaction. Introduction to early literacy skills such as print motivation and awareness, letter knowledge with phonological awareness, and vocabulary development through story time and educational games.
Station Masters (3 years-4 years) Focus on independent and peer learning activities. Children learn to watch and wait their turn for obstacles and games. They develop better listening skills as they are given different instructions to follow within each play area. Practice early literacy skills such as print motivation and awareness, letter knowledge with phonological awareness, and vocabulary development through story time and educational games.
