With our experienced staff and easy access for working parents, the Kirk Tot Center has served our community for more than a generation. Programs cover a wide range of child ages and family needs.
Infant/Crawl to Walk
For moms (or dads) and babies who need some time away from home to be with others who are in similar circumstances. The teacher is experienced with children, new moms, and overwhelmed moms, and has advice and help for families going through these young baby stages. Classes meet on Mondays, Classes are forming.
For children who are new on their feet, but are ready to begin some socialization. Moms and dads of this age group often experiencing a time of struggle, either as a first-time parent or by the changes in the family due to the arrival of another child. The teacher is equipped to be helpful and supportive in a variety of family situations. Classes meet on Wednesdays. Classes are forming.
These classes provide an opportunity for parents to be nearby but out of sight of their children for most of the two hours. This process eases the child into separation from mom or dad and helps them learn that “mommies always come back.” Parents participate in music time with their children at the beginning and end of each class. Parents may attend one or both days per week.
Tots ‘n Training
A preschool class for children not yet potty trained. Teachers follow the family’s wishes concerning potty training. The program is patterned after our Elementary School classes with time dedicated to art, music, snack and play time. Extended care, including a lunch time and a nap, is available for this age group. (Hot lunch is not available.)
