Social Skills Group – 3 to 4 year olds run by Emily

What we’ll be working on: Using eye contact to let others know we are listening; Understanding and maintaining personal space; Initiating play with other children; Asking for help when needed; Cooperating, sharing, taking turns and working as part of a group; Exploring a variety of feelings through books and games.

Cost: For a group of 2 children, rates are $65 per child, per session. For a group of 3 children, rates are $50 per child, per session. Payment will be collected every 2 weeks, and rates will be adjusted if additional children are added over the course of the summer.
