Come spend time exploring art and sensory activities with your toddler! During this playgroup we will set up an engaging group of toddler- friendly activities for open play & exploration. Your child will begin to understand that different materials affect their senses in a variety of ways. We’ll talk about sensory and language development, and you’ll come away with ideas for simple activities to set up for your child at home… and make new friends! Each playgroup will include a gently guided art process for you and your child to participate in with the group. The playgroup is 50 minutes long. Please arrive no earlier than 5 minutes beforehand. This will give us the opportunity to get properly set up before our artists arrive. Weather permitting, please park strollers outside.
Location:The studio is located at 120 Allen Road, Sandy Springs, 30328. We are located at the corner of Sandy Springs Circle and Allen Road in a cute bungalow ranch home. Kindly park in the back gravel lot, or the top driveway facing Allen Road. Limited street parking is also available on Sandy Springs Circle.
Attire:This playgroup involves a lot of messy fun! The children often immerse themselves in wet and colorful materials. Pick an old t-shirt and pants for them to wear every week (an art uniform!), and a change of clothes is always a good idea along with baby wipes. You or your child’s caretaker might also consider that paint splatter happens (we use a lot of tempera paint, which is non toxic, but can stain). Both children and caretakers should remove shoes upon entering the classroom.
Your/ Your Caretaker’s Role: This series of art and sensory experiences is very much about fostering independent exploration of materials within a group setting. Please give your child as much space as he or she is comfortable with to explore in ANY way they would like. It is truly amazing how they use the materials in unexpected ways. Your role is to keep them safe, give them permission, and talk to them about how the materials look, feel, smell, sound, and even taste! Our role is to gently redirect if needed. Stay calm, everything is non toxic and mostly washable.
Illness and Makeups: As in most daycare and school policies, if your child has had a fever within 24 hours, please keep them home to refrain from spreading illness. Please let us know as soon as you know your child will not be attending, so that those on the wait list may join us that day. One make up is available per session.
Classes are limited to 8 students. La Dee Da strives to keep families safe while also offering an engaging program you will love. We sanitize all tools, materials and classrooms before and after each class.
