At the Cypress Family Center we believe that the foundations of success in adulthood are built during the earliest years of life. Our core program is the toddler enrichment class during which care givers are helped to support toddler independence and are educated in effective strategies for managing those behaviors that traditionally make the twos “terrible.” Changes in the demands of preschool have led children to have increasing difficulty with focus, attention and separation from parents. It has become important to address these issues in toddlers so that they can enter preschool with the ability to enjoy being school children. Our services, including our parent guidance and group discussions, are designed to support parents in being in “feeling touch” with their children. We believe that when parents see behavior as communication, the code is broken and everyone feels understood which makes the whole family happier.
