Tadpole Academy Parent-Child Classes
Does your young child show a keen interest in learning? CTD’s parent-child classes offer engaging play activities that challenge children to think with creativity and increasing complexity. Each Tadpole Academy session includes a series of three parent-child classes on Saturday mornings in Evanston. No test scores are required for your child to participate. Children must be three years old (at time of program) and accompanied in each class by a parent or caregiver.
Tadpole Academy provides an introduction to the advanced academic curriculum provided in CTD weekend and summer programs, while also preparing families for the parent/child interactions made available through the CTD family program online.
Courses are 90 minutes from 9:30 am to 11:00 am.
CTD Parent-Child Classes
CTD parent-child classes stimulate children’s creative thinking and problem-solving skills in math, science, and language arts.
Most young children enjoy playing with their parents and other adults, especially when the children can take the lead and make their own decisions. During class, parents observe and practice interactions and conversations, which foster cognitive growth.
