Hello to all moms!
Are you ready for some quality time with your young child or children? I would like to introduce you to not only a way to spend quality time, but also an educational opportunity for you and your child(ren) to enjoy as a team!
I am the owner and director of a new mommy and me business, Wiggles, Squiggles & Grins, LLC. After moving away from the local area to New York City and having children of my own, I found wonderful experiences with several different mommy and me classes. My son Brenden and I enjoyed the classes and quality time together. Upon returning to Northeastern Pennsylvania to be near relatives, my youngest child Kylie, missed out on these valuable experiences. Having a background in education and school counseling, with the majority of my experiences in early childhood daycare settings, I decided that a “mommy and me” business was the perfect fit for both myself and the families of the Northeastern Pennsylvania area thus, the creation of Wiggles, Squiggles & Grins, LLC is now here.
At Wiggles, Squiggles & Grins, LLC, you and your child(ren) will experience music and movement in a relaxed setting. The groups will be no larger than 6 children with a parent or caregiver remaining at any one session. Please note that this is not only for moms! Dads, grandparents, and other caregivers may bring your child as well! There are groups for children beginning at 6 months old and continue through 5 years old. We can also make arrangements for you to attend with a younger infant sibling if necessary, or combine siblings in a group that can meet both of their needs for development. Sessions meet for one hour each week for either a 6 or 8 week period.
At each session you and your child(ren) will experience music and movement in a way that helps to meet many developing needs of children. Through movements to the music, your child will develop hand-eye coordination, develop balance and develop gross motor skills. They will also learn educational concepts important for school and reading readiness, such as letters and letter sounds, colors, shapes, and numbers. Many of the songs will also help to develop the positive social skills that we want to instill in our children at a young age.
Another part of each session is an art process experience. Your child will develop fine motor skills that are so important for later writing skills. Children can learn so much just from interacting with art materials in a relaxed setting. A few of the art experiences will also involve creating instruments with recycled materials, similar to those used during our music experiences so they may continue the enjoyment of music at home.
I look forward to meeting the moms and families of Northeastern Pennsylvania and enjoying many musical, educational and fun experiences together!
