Tiny Builders – UES

Parent/Caregiver & Child PreK Classes

IMG_9816Tiny builders is a class for children starting at 18 months and their caregivers. In this class we build robots, tell stories about robots, color robots, and maybe even dance like robots – all while learning fun tidbits about engineering!

We believe in a Do-It-Together philosophy, so in this class both child and caregiver build and learn together. Every class the children will take home one of their robot creations, so the exploration and discovery can continue at home!

If you have any questions, you can always contact us.

What will they do?

IMG_20171129_110326Each week we will introduce a new building activity for children and caregivers to explore together. Each 3-week session builds upon the next and the activity that we introduced in the previous session will be present during subsequent classes to allow kids tons of times to play and explore.

A session  last 3 weeks- there will be two simple take-home activity and one more complicated take-home electronic project per session. We will start and end the class with a storybook and introduction to circuits using electronic stuffed animals.

  1. The class is sold out. What do I do now? Once a session is sold out, you will see a “waitlist” link. Please click on that and add your information. If spaces become available, we will let you know!
  2. What is your cancellation policy? See our cancellation policy.
  3. Are there any make-up classes? You can make up to 1 class per 3 week session. The project you do in the make-up class may be a repeat. You must coordinate all make-ups with our customer service team to ensure there is room for you in that class.
  4. Can a child this young really build? Yes! For the Tiny Builders class the kids will be able to build the circuits themselves. For the Super Tiny class, the kids will need help from their caregivers but the activities are more exploratory and free-form.
  5. Is there anything I should know before the class? Yes. We would love it if the caregiver who attends with the child allows the child to explore and try building without a ton of intervention. You are definitely building the projects together but we ask that you give your child the chance to participate rather than doing it all for them. The most amazing way for kids to learn is to let them try things, let them fail, let them succeed even if they do it a bit slower than the grown-ups are used to. It is really a wonderful experience to see your child invent new things!
