The Mary Meyer School Parent & Toddler Program offers new experiences and wonderful activities for children ages 21-33 months old in our purposeful, play-based environment. The program provides varied opportunities for each child to connect, play and learn as fully as possible in the comfort of the beloved brownstone schoolhouse that is our home. Children and their accompanying grown-up share and play in a tot friendly environment of equipment and materials that are used freely and creatively with adult support and guidance. A variety of purposeful play-based activities including music, movement, creative play, art and stories take place both indoors and outdoors in the Mary Meyer School Playgarden.
Our program is based on supporting the child’s developmental desire to explore. Debra Wechter, the Parent & Toddler Program Teacher and Head Teacher in our Morning and Afternoon Classes at Mary Meyer School, organizes and plans activities which help to accomplish this task. The environment has been designed to provide a rich atmosphere where children can play and discover at their own pace.
