Making Sense of Sensory Disorders

Join Dr. Tanya Kekki with Kekki Chiropractic and Caley as we discuss varying sensory needs of young children. When does rough and tumble play become more than "normal development"?

Learn about the different sensory inputs, systems, and how to support your child and their different needs. 

Please RSVP if childcare is needed. Supervised open gym play will be available for $10 while parents attend this FREE workshop.

Toddler Social Class & Crafts

Toddlerhood is an exciting time! Children are acquiring the prerequisite skills to talk, read, and write. Come play in an environment with activities arranged to enhance toddler learning, social skills, and ideas for moms to take home. Children will interact in a strategically arranged classroom, but all activities will be child-led, adult supervised; meaning children may decide to play with a ball instead of the awesome paint activity, and we'll encourage their choice! Every week the highlighted activity will facilitate the "weekly skill". Skills will be selected based upon age-appropriate milestones across all developmental domains. Our intention is to teach parents about expected milestones and provide ideas, activity, and tips for supporting your child's development at home. 

Registration for the class includes: all materials for class, a hand-out on a weekly skill, and an hour meeting every week.  

Class Age Group: Kids Class (1 - 2 Year-Olds)

Price: $65/month, paid at the beginning of every month 

If your child does not fall into one of these age groups, you are still encouraged to join us! You will still learn great tools to learn when your child shows signs of readiness. Please feel free to contact us and discuss further details. 

Please check frequently to see our updated list of upcoming class options.

Pre-School Class

If your four-year old is preparing for Kindergarten and you would like to be equipped with tools to help him/her make the transition, this class is for you! We will work a different skill each week through novel activities to keep the children engaged while the adults facilitate learning skills such as focus, self-regulation, and cooperation. Our primary focus for each class will be individual goals formulated from an observation and parent meeting. At the end of each week, parents will receive an update discussing how the goals were embedded in the lesson, the child's response, and goals for the upcoming weeks.  

Monthly registration for the class includes: Weekly playgroups, weekly goal reports, teacher- coached interactions and teacher-promtped strategies. 

Additional observations and conferences are $45. Please register for the class online and comment "observation desired" and Caley will promptly contact you to arrange a convenient time and location.
