Delaware Wolf Trap offers lively, hands-on workshops that encourage imaginative play and arts-based development activities for family members and child care providers.
Parents and caregivers are a child’s first teachers. The families of your students will come away with fun, effective strategies to bring into the home. Siblings are welcome. Each workshop is 45–60 minutes long. Virtual options are available.
