DS is almost 2.5 and we've had some challenges with his daycare lately. One of my concerns is that he isn't getting enough learning opportunities due to the unstructured environment at his center. It looks like moving him is not in the cards right now, so I'm looking for ways to enhance what I feel is lacking at "school" with more enrichment at home until he's eligible for 3s preschool.

I'm not a teacher, but I work with many teachers and I'm interested to learn more about age appropriate curriculum. I enrolled DS in a weekend music class that we've done before and enjoyed and I'm looking for other resources.

Any suggestions for parent-focused guide to Montessori, Reggio-Emilia, or art enrichment that is age-appropriate? I don't have a ton of time to search blogs and pinterest, but I'd like to incorporate some social-emotional skills, self-care, and definitely more art and creativity into our daily lives.

Feel free to tell me if it sounds like I'm helicoptering. I've been somewhat laid back up til now - he walked late and talked late and I just tried not to worry about it. He has turned into a very bright little boy and I want to give him every opportunity that I can
