Kitchen Table Learning Strategies for Home
Spend an afternoon learning together in the Tiny Toy Co. workspace, and discover the power of our original loose parts learning activities! Parents will learn how to use everyday toys at home to enhance your child's literacy, numeracy, and cognitive skills.
Parents and school-aged kids 4-8y (Preschool-Grade 2) will work alongside Tiny Toy Co. Founder & Educational Director, Rebecca Saha (M.A., B.Ed., OCT) in our residentially-based, west Toronto workspace.*
This workshop is suitable for kids aged 4-8, learning alongside a parent at each child's own level. Parents will come away equipped and inspired to continue using these learning methods with kids at home.
PLEASE USE THE QUANTITY INDICATOR TO REFLECT THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN ATTENDING. MAXIMUM ENROLMENT: 8 KIDS
PLEASE USE THE NOTE AREA AT CHECKOUT TO LET ME KNOW THE NAME(S) AND AGE(S) OF THE PARTICIPATING KID(S).
How many kids and parents will be there? To facilitate optimal learning, and due to space restrictions, this workshop has a maximum enrolment of 8 kids.
Can my partner and I both come with our child? No, each child participant should be brought with one adult only, due to space limitations.
Can I bring more than one sibling? Yes, one adult can work with up to 3 kids. Please use the quantity in your shopping cart to reflect the number of kids participating. Bringing 1 child requires purchasing 1 ticket, 2 children require 2 tickets, and 3 need 3 tickets, since that reduces availability for others in the workshop.
Can my child bring a friend? No, this particular workshop is designed to teach parents/guardians how to set their own child up for learning at home. Therefore, each child should be working with the adult who cares for them at home.
Can I bring a child younger than 4? Can I bring my baby? Not this time, please. This is a parent + child workshop aimed at showing parents how to work with their kids at home. The child(ren) enrolled will need your full attention, as will working with our educational director to learn how to replicate these activities at home.
Will there be handouts? You will be able to purchase our Loose Parts Learning Starter Set and Booster Packs on site at a considerable discount, if wanted. These kits contain lesson plan activity cards, and all the loose parts you need to set up for kitchen table learning at home!
Can I shop while I'm there? Yes, you will be able to see in person everything that's already in the shop online. You can also get a sneak peek at items cued up as new releases, or shop by-the-piece from our sorting bins. Families will be invited to start with a tour, and finish with a few minutes to browse the workspace after we're done working together.
*Address of our residentially-based workspace in the Kingsway neighbourhood will be provided via email.
