FUSE is pleased to announce that our Growing Together Early Learning Series is coming to Shelby County! The Growing Together Early Learning Series will give families of young children ideas for fun play-based activities that will support the development of early learning skills and help children achieve developmental milestones.
Parents will attend the session with their child and get hands-on training from a pediatric therapist specializing in the developmental area targeted for each session, including speech/language, gross motor, fine motor or social/emotional development. Parents may attend one session or as many sessions as their schedule allows. Eligible children will be ages one to five and must be residents of Shelby County.
Advance registration is required for each session. The schedule of each session includes:
February 21 Let’s Play (focus on multiple developmental skills and social/emotional development)
March 28 Time To Talk (focus on speech/language)
April 11 Big Muscles (focus on gross motor skills)
April 25 All About the Senses (focus on fine motor skills and sensory integration)
Registration is now open for Time to Talk on March 28.
Learn how to easily work developmental activities into your everyday routines! The Time to Talk session will help parents understand the importance of speech and language development as it relates to their child’s social skills, confidence, peer relationships, reading skills and much more! The session will focus on activities parents and caregivers can do quickly and easily throughout the day to encourage growth of speech and language skills.
Eligible children will be ages one to five and must be residents of Shelby County.
