  • LENA Start

    Talk builds babies’ brains! To your baby’s brain, the most important time in life is before the 3rd birthday. Those first 36 months, while baby’s brain is growing the most, are a once-in-a-lifetime chance to do something wonderful with your child! Research shows that talking more with babies is one of the most critical elements in their early brain development. It works right from birth – even before the baby understands a single word! Most parents don’t know how much they’re talking with their babies. And almost all parents can do more! The LENA® System – like a pedometer for talk! LENA System technology records speech at home for a day after each class. You get reports on how much you’re talking, when you could talk more, and how much you’re growing with your baby! The LENA System only tracks words, conversations, and other data, not meanings of words. No one can listen to what was said. Sound recordings are deleted after processing. Easy to learn, easy to use With LENA Start, you get: • Use of LENA System during the program • Clear, entertaining lessons featuring videos and hands-on activities • Take-home parent materials • Easy-to-use Talking Tips to build conversations with your child every day • Sharing with other parents of young children • Free “Shared Reading” books to take home
  • Park Play

    Wayzata Early Learning School staff will be at the park this summer and we invite YOU to join us! Families are invited to meet at the park and enjoy some outdoor activities, projects, and fun with other children and families! There is no charge for this activity, but we ask that you pre-register so that staff can plan for the children who will be attending. All ages are welcome, but the activities will be geared towards early childhood students. Organized activities will be for 90 minutes, but families are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch, stay and play, and enjoy the company of the other families and children.
