Our Gillispie at H.O.M.E. (Hands On Mindful Exploration) program offers Early Childhood families a lively distance cohort experience. This interactive community includes daily virtual meet-ups for children ages 2 through Prekindergarten and a variety of at-home activities.
For young learners 20 months and older, we offer our PTEP (Parent Toddler Exploration Program) at H.O.M.E which meets weekly instead of daily and includes prompts for at-home activities, a curated box of developmentally appropriate supplies, and a virtual Music & Movement class held once a week.
More information on both options is available below, as well as a link to register!

“We LOVE the program! It is honestly SO good. We are thrilled with it and have been raving about it to everyone. Mrs. Bryan is the perfect fit and we look forward to seeing her calming and smiling face every morning. She is always responsive, fun, and kind online. The H.O.M.E. program has proved to be well thought out, organized, creative, and Reggio-inspired. It is more than we hoped for and we are truly enjoying it.” – Gillispie at HO.M.E. Parent
