Where to Find Parent/Child and “Mommy and Me” Classes

Parent/child and “mommy and me” classes are the perfect way to get out and get active with your little one! Not only will you enjoy singing, dancing, jumping and getting creative together, but you’ll also both have fun socializing with your peers. Some classes are in person and some are offering zoom classes online! Making connections with others is just as important for parents as it is for babies, and you may even find that you’ll meet up with families outside of class time.
