MOMMY & ME

Looking for something fun and educational to do with your little one?

Look no further…Capistrano Adult School’s MOMMY & ME/DADDY & ME classes are here for parents and their

two and three year olds! Crafts, directed activities, music and movements, stories, and more! Children play in a

developmentally appropriate setting while parents support them in learning pre-academic skills, following directions,

listening, and socialization under the direction of a credentialed teacher. Parents learn and discuss child development,

family life, and best parenting practices. Field trips, guest speakers, and new friendships pave the way for future school

readiness. Find out more at www.CapistranoAdultSchool.org   or call (949) 493-0658. This is a CUSD program.

SONGS
