Almost On My Own – mommy and me program NYC

Almost On My Own - mommy and me program in NYC

“Discovery made the entry into learning for nervous parents and little children exciting, safe, nurturing and fun!”

‘Mommy and Me’ style program

This “mommy and me” style program, helps children and parents prepare for school and the separation process. Accompanied by a parent or caregiver, toddlers share lively group and community experiences that set the stage for later independent play. Their twice a week, 90 minute experience provides a mix of classroom time as well as full body play and movement in our full equipped gym. Almost On My Own sets up daily routines and structures for when the child will move on from the mommy and me setting to a twos program or preschool. During classroom time, children explore varied art and sensory projects such as painting, collage, playdoh and clay, enjoy cooking together, listen to stories, and play with their classmates. Toddlers will also love to bounce, climb and play in our large, fully-padded gym, or turn into kitties and fire trucks as the music specialist turns our spacious auditorium into a fantasy playground.

With the “parent and me” setting, children will become comfortable and secure through reliable routines and rhythms which will make it smooth for the child to master their experience as they grow increasingly confident and independent. Parents and caregivers will enjoy the interactive experience and community time. They will find a nurturing and fun educational environment where they can experience one last mommy and me activity.

Many of the children from Almost On My Own progress to On My Own and start their separation process with Discovery. Regardless, after this program, the child will feel comfortable following classroom routines and be ready for a twos program.
