Tadpole Academy

CTD Parent-Child Classes

CTD parent-child classes stimulate children’s creative thinking and problem-solving skills in math, science, and language arts.

Most young children enjoy playing with their parents and other adults, especially when the children can take the lead and make their own decisions. During class, parents observe and practice interactions and conversations, which foster cognitive growth.
