Classes for Kids

What is your child interested in? On this page you can find lists of various classes for kids to encourage learning, fun, and exploring different disciplines. When you click on each type of class, you will find that it is organized by town.

Click here to be taken to our One-Stop Spot to Find Kids Classes and Teams. It’s the most comprehensive and helpful guide to all of the activities you can sign your kids up for in the west and southwest suburbs. You’ll find everything from sports to fine arts, intellectual pursuits to classes for little kids.

We highly recommend contacting a few locations that interest you and asking if you can observe or if they offer free trial classes that your child can try before registering. Get a feel for the location, style of instruction, structure of the class and teacher personalities.
