RTG offers support and in class parenting education for parents while providing enriching and age appropriate playtime for children. We provide a structured environment such as circle time and fun activities for parents to do with their children in a comfortable environment. We provide opportunities for parents to connect and build strong relationships with other parents. RTG also organizes activities outside of class time, which include evening parenting classes as well as family events such as hikes and our annual fundraising carnival.
It is a program that combines education and practical hands on experience. Our weekly classes involve a parent education class component where our teachers discuss and educate the parents on age appropriate topics. Half of the parents will attend these sessions, while the other half watches the toddlers in specific areas of the classroom such as the sensory play area or the play kitchen. Parents gain work experience by interacting with the toddlers.
Parents work together and share rotating classroom responsibilities such as after class clean up, providing a snack or bringing in school supplies. Our program becomes a fun and loving community when parents join in and work together.
Parents have a shared responsibility of watching/playing with our toddlers during in class parent ed classes. This teaches children to socialize and communicate with adults other than their parents.

Our program involves participation of both the adult (student) and toddler during class time. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents be able to spend time with their children in a classroom setting.
Yes, a caregiver such as a nanny, grandparent, aunt/uncle may attend the class with your toddler. Both the caregiver and the legal guardian are required to enroll with LWTech. Only children enrolled in Redmond Toddler Group may attend class due to insurance purposes.
Parent education nights provide invaluable information for parents of infants/toddlers to better understand and respond to their child’s needs. Examples of these classes include lectures on nutrition, anxiety, and dental hygiene to name a few events from previous years. Education nights are child-free unless otherwise indicated. Infants in arms are welcome.
