Free Infant and Toddler Family Engagement Sessions

In March, I attended one of the free infant and toddler family engagement sessions offered by CCSD Early Childhood Department and presented by Lakeshore Learning® and it was such an awesome class! My friend told me about it and I was curious, so I signed up for the next session and it was so worth it.

I couldn’t keep this for myself, so I reached out to the CCSD Early Childhood Department to get all the info to share with you for upcoming events.

The best part, they are all FREE!

June Session #2 | Supporting my Child’s Fine & Gross Motor Development

Young children develop motor skills in several areas; gross motor, fine motor, and sensory/perceptual. This is done through relationships with the adults in their life as they actively manipulate objects in their world. This session will focus on gross motor development and the progression of milestones as children learn to use their large muscles for movement and position. You will learn about fine motor development, including hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills in exploration, play, and daily routines. You will learn how to engage with your child to support their fine and gross motor skills through interactions and fun, hands-on materials and activities.
