Prompt Personal Attention
I’m sure you are aware that all Romp n’ Roll classes for infants and toddlers require parent participation. And you probably assume that this is based on safety considerations. However, while safety obviously is a significant issue, there is another reason for this policy that is even more important.
When I was a researcher with the Harvard Preschool Project, I was often asked to identify the single factor we determined to be most influential in ensuring that a child would develop optimally and make the most of her potential during the first years of life. The answer? Prompt personal attention from people who were crazy about the child and who experienced enormous pride and joy in her achievements.
The equipment, environments, and activities at Romp n’ Roll are expertly designed to give your infant or toddler the best opportunity to develop optimally and make the most of her potential. But we know that only you can provide her with what she needs to take maximum advantage of that opportunity.
