Sanford FIT Make & Take It! Social and Emotional Learning for Parents and Children
New Parent & Me Classes! You and your little one will learn about how to cope with big feelings. You'll also be able to make your very own craft to take home!
Our new parent and child classes are small groups of around 10 children with a parent (or caregiver) created to provide an early opportunity to learn more about healthy parenting skills, coping techniques, emotional regulation, mindfulness, and bonding. Each class will feature fun educational topics for both kids and adults and a creative hands-on activity or craft!
All materials are provided with the cost of the event. This class is intended for children (ages 3-5) and one adult parent/caregiver. Registration is required.
