Parent*Child & Nursery

During these unusual and challenging times,
here is a treasure trove of child development gems.

The developmental movement plays created by Wilma Ellersiek are designed especially for the young child and provide the foundation for healthy child development.  Here you'll find delightful loving touch, hand gesture and large movement plays accompanied by rhyming verse or songs in the mood of the 5th.  These materials support teachers and parents in creating a more harmonious and magical atmosphere at home, in the classroom, or in outdoor spaces.

☙ Year Round ☙

~ Before Dawn ~

This delightful play brings the picture of the rooster calling cock-a-doodle-doo and the sun rising.  "At last the children wake up too and laugh and laugh, yoohoo!"  All through the year we slowly add different creatures each month, except in January no change.  Then resuming in February we continue adding creatures so by April we have introduced an entire barnyard!
