Active Minds is a bilingual play based program designed for children 2-3.5 years of age and their parents. Classes meet twice a week for 1.25 hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We encourage natural exploration and learning guided by a child’s parent, their first and most important teacher.
Active Minds provides early childhood education experiences in key dimensions of a child’s early learning: social/emotional growth and language and pre-literacy skill development. Parents and children actively engage together in the classroom activities. Younger siblings are welcome to participate. Using evidence based curriculum, the Early Childhood Specialist Teacher helps parents make the connection between play and school readiness and models specific strategies parents can use to optimize children’s play. Parents receive information and resources to extend learning opportunities at home. Active Minds is funded by the First 5 Napa County Children and Families Commission.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: The Active Minds Spring Semester Class will start in March. We will be contacting parents who are currently on the Interest List to update our records. Please note the Interest List does not determine priority for registration. We have 45 children on the Interest List and only 10 spaces available in the class. Participants will be selected based on age and need. Once we have updated our records, we will notify those remaining on the Interest List of their status for enrollment. Thank you for your patience!
