NEW CLASS - Developing Strong Bonds with Young Children

OLLI is pleased to announce the addition of another class to the winter term schedule on Tuesday, February 4, at 3:00 p.m.

Developing Strong Bonds with Young Children
Cheryl B. McNeil, PhD

Come join the fun as we discuss how to engage, play, and talk to young children in a way that helps to promote positive relationships, build their self-esteem, and manage difficult behavior.  We will learn to use play as the medium through which we can build strong bonds with the little ones in our lives.  We hope you will come play with us!
