First steps

This is where playgroups are formed, songs are sung, bubbles are blown, and little arms reach out for hand stamps. Parents form bonds with their infants and toddlers, but more importantly, with each other in parent-child classes that are open to the community. As kids grow and naps go by the wayside, preschool enrichment classes offer afternoon explorations in the arts, sports, and movement. Kids-only classes form a bridge to the next stage of development and offer opportunities for more independence.

Children enrolled in Kids-only classes must be fully potty trained.
