PRC Program Schedule

 

The Drop-In is a bright and sunny space designed to encourage play and social conversations.

  • Simple crafts and special activities are available daily as well as access to a fenced-in play yard.
  • Large couches safely surround a baby area providing a cozy and stimulating environment for parents and infants and a place for preschool children to enjoy a quiet story.
  • Dramatic play opportunities abound in our dress up corner and play kitchen.
  • Participation and cooperation is integral to this program. Adults and children alike are encouraged to tidy up and maintain the drop-in as well as join in during circle time.
  • Circle time takes place every morning around 11 a.m., for the adults and children, featuring songs, finger plays, rhymes, puppets and stories.
  • Borrow toys and parent resource books from our lending libraries.

Networks of support develop and friendships grow among both adults and children. The Parent-Child Educator provides information about children's health and development, discipline strategies and childcare choices plus many other topics of interest to parents and caregivers. She lends a sympathetic ear, refers parents to other professionals and agencies and problem solves with parents who are struggling with a particular concern.

Tip of the Day
Instead of saying "Don't touch anything!" when taking young children on an outing, say "Look with your eyes" and teach them the One Finger Rule. By touching with one finger, they can satisfy some of their natural curiosity without being able to pick up anything.
