Mommy and Tot
is a unique theme-based program that is designed to be entertaining and educational
for children as well as fun for their moms (or dads).
Each class has a different theme with projects, stories, snacks, music & movement that reflect the
current theme. This provides the children with a well rounded program that is structured, organized and
fun. The classes are different each week (or month) yet they maintain a familiar routine that is important
for the children.
Each class includes:
A time to get to know one another by joining together for finger plays, poems and songs.
Enjoy hearing a story while introducing the children to the wonderful world of reading.

Mommy and Tot program goals
Aiding in early childhood socialization
The Mommy and Tot program helps babies/toddlers discover their connections to other people and build
friendships by nurturing bonds between playmates.
Promoting the development of physical and cognitive skills
The program helps babies/toddlers develop their knowledge of the world around them through play. As
children get older, continued Mommy and Tot/Canal Town Nursery School experiences help build their
creativity, motor skills and social emotional skills.
Building parent-child bonds
The program design focuses on the bond between children and their parents, who are often the child's
first playmates. This goal supports the bond of parent-child through play; which is equally as important
as our goal to aid in early childhood development. When parents enter their child's world of play and
imagination, the child blossoms with more confidence to explore and learn. Time spent playing with mom
or dad contributes to healthy emotional development and also builds trust between parent and child.
Building parent-parent bonds
Most parents are looking for the opportunity not only to play with their children, but also to meet and
bond with other like-minded parents. Mommy and Tot can provide this through a designated “Mommy
Time”, a 20 minute period following each play session in which parents from the group are encouraged to
stick around and chat.
