Our Minnows program is designed for one year olds. It offers an opportunity to begin to socialize with other children, to explore independent play with and without a parent and to experience new activites. Up to 8 children attend Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 3:30 to 5:30pm.

Parents work in the classroom on either Tuesday or Thursday on a weekly schedule with an adult/child ratio of 1 to 2 or better. 2015-2016 dues: $245/month

Elizabeth, parent of a Minnow What first attracted me to Slippery Fish for my then 12 month old daughter was the idea of strengthening my own network and community of other parents, which has definitely happened. But what I didn't anticipate (because my daughter was so young at the time) was how strong a community of friends SHE would build as well. Watching her thrive in such a warm and welcoming place makes me so happy!
Katherine, parent of a Minnow Being a Minnow has given both my son and me the weekly social interactions we were looking for, so much so that he now has 8 really good friends - and so do I!

Parent Testimonial

The other children in my son’s class and their parents are wonderful. The kids have a great time playing, doing arts and crafts, and exploring nature outside. I am amazed at how quickly my free-spirited little guy is learning to sit still with his buddies at snack and circle time. It is also amazing to see how much he has learned and how much he has developed by spending time with his peers. We are extremely happy with our Slippery Fish experience."
