PARENTAL REMINDER:
Sending your child to a class is an individual choice that
needs to be tailored to each individual child.  If you
do not feel your child is emotionally ready to be separated
from you to attend the whole class it is important that you
choose to either attend the class with your child (no class
fees are charged for parents attending classes with their
child) or choose not to have your child enrolled in that
class.  There are play activities available during the
course of the day that will engage and delight your child if
they are emotionally ready for that with you there.
That having been said, Pied Piper is NOT a baby-sitting
service.  We do not potty train, change diapers, make
bottles, or otherwise baby-sit.  We are here to teach
and engage children in learning activities that are fun and
interactive so that everyone may learn in a safe and creative
manner.
