Play & Grow

Play & Grow Together 2

Play and Grow Together offers a variety of learning opportunities for infants and toddlers (6 months through 24 months) and their parent, grandparent, or other caregiver. Under the direction of a highly qualified teacher, caregivers encourage their young children to explore materials to increase their motor skills, communication and social and emotional well-being.

Carefully planned activities may include music with movement components, literacy experiences through language and print materials, and purposeful relationship building opportunities. Caregivers are provided with guidance in order to aid their child in reaching their full potential in all developmental domains during the program and then at home.

Meet the Instructor: Katie Pollack

Katie’s love for reaching young children extends into infants and toddlers this summer as she leads the Play & Grow Together program.  Having two young children of her own has afforded her unique perspective into what families are truly looking for in classes such as this one. Katie’s passion for having all children explore what nature has to offer will be infused throughout this session. Katie looks forward to helping families build connections with one another as well as with other members of the class. Katie’s energy will be shared though music, dance, and yoga!
Katie earned an MS in Literacy from Wilmington University and a BS in Early Childhood Education from the University of Delaware. She is a licensed Delaware teacher of Early Childhood & Early Childhood Special Education, an Early Childhood Administrator in Delaware, and a certified Master Instructor in the Delaware Institute for Excellence in Early Childhood.
