Weekly Overview – Families

For Infant, Toddler, Preschool/Pre-K, School-Age Families

A child’s first and most lasting connections are with family members so learning about families is a natural extension of their interests and experiences. This week, we dive into discovering family members’ names, memories, and stories. We make puppets and family story props, go on a family picture hunt, and much more. Come with us to learn about families!
