Sackler Lefcourt Center For Child Development is a child development center in Manhattan that accepts children from birth until the age of 3. Parental involvement is stressed and the mother of the child remains at the center with the child throughout the time at this Upper East Side facility. Sackler Lefcourt Center For Child Development offers these play groups and mothers discussions weekly.
There are three group programs at the Sackler Lefcourt Center For Child Development. They are divided based on the age of the child. The infant group is comprised of children from birth until the age of 6 months, the toddler group has children from 6 months to 17 months and the nursery school has children from 17 to 36 months. The primary goal of these groups is to allow mothers to discuss and share aspects of the development of their child as well as interact with other mothers and hopefully learn from each other as well as the facility staff. While the mothers meet the children play and learn appropriate social interaction skills. The mothers are on hand to provide any reassurance or guidance that their child may need.
As the child grows more independent the depth of the play-based activities changes. Activities include group and individual play, arts and crafts, water play, playing in sand, music and story time. Discussion topics for the mothers range from sleeping and eating habits to language learning, toilet training and sibling relationships.
