Parent-Child Groups

Welcome to Kids In Action Parent-Child Groups!

Our groups are specifically designed to promote:

  • Social skills and interactions of children 0-3 years old while learning and having fun
  • Speech/language enhancement
  • Fine and gross motors skills

We consider our program to be different than other parent-child groups because:

  • They are lead by highly experienced and trained teachers with at least seven years of experience.
  • Health care professionals ( occupational therapists, physical therapists and/or speech/language pathologists) periodically join the group in order to offer suggestions on motor, communication and adaptive skill development.
  • Kids In Action actively includes all parents in their child's session.
  • Kids In Action provides educational materials.
  • Group leaders answer questions often asked by parents about their child's mental, physical, emotional and social development.

Some of the activities include:

  • Good morning circle
  • Following directions and establishing routines
  • Group play in sensory-motor gym
  • Songs and crafts
  • Cooperative play
  • Large muscle movement and motor planning

Currently, there are three programs held at Kids In Action's clinic on Saturday mornings. Groups typically include 6 - 8 children and their parents. A weekday morning group is under development.

Feel free to contact us about our unique program.
