*Class offerings may vary by location
Is it a Gym class? Is it an Art class? Actually, it's both! This class is a combination of gym exploration and an art project, getting a chance to exercise your little one's body and mind. In addition to gym and art, families will build social development through group activities, parachute time, and a bubble dance party! In the gym, you never know how all our colorful equipment will be set up to match our different themes - it changes each week! The art portion of the class gives each child the opportunity to build fine motor and sensory perception skills through exploration and creative expression. Since this class is created for children of all ages, it is a perfect match for siblings or friends!
Young artists are busy building so many skills. In Art Explorers 1, children will explore and play with different colors and textures using everything under the sun as a paintbrush: clothes pins, legos, forks, vegetables, and more. This sensory exploration will encourage motor planning, problem-solving, and cognition, contributing to their growing ingenuity and cognitive development! In addition, we'll read stories, sing songs, and move about the room to keep up with the energy of your little artist. The best part? Every week, you and your child will create a keepsake project that you can keep forever to remember this fun and exciting toddler stage!
A turtle tambourine, a spiny cactus, an astronaut...these are some of the cool art projects that will be created by your artistic little one. Each week children will create an art project related to a different theme, participate in exploration and tactile stations in addition to performing music and movement activities. This class is chock full of learning and is sure to help develop a love for the arts!
If you have a little chef in your family, this is THE class for you! In Chef Rompy, your child will go to faraway lands and learn about the culture, the language, and of course, the FOOD! Each week brings a recipe from a different country from around the world which the children will assist in creating. This class brings a love for cooking together with multicultural appreciation, learning to follow instructions, and a fun way to use math! Our little chefs even receive their own passports with stamps from the countries they've visited. Every now and then we will highlight food from right here in the United States. The children will be able to sample each tasty treat they create, and, if you're lucky, bring some home! Our Chef Rompy Class is 60 minutes long and takes place in the Art Room.
Do you have a budding engineer? Does your little one love to figure out how things are put together? Get ready for an Art adventure class designed for your young builder! Children will create construction-themed artwork but will also have the opportunity to hone their construction skills by building with Legos and other building materials, plus they learn about a different tool every week, exploring our collection of kid-friendly tools. Creating a variety of structures and following a building plan are some of the concepts and skills your child will be introduced to. In this class we're building fun! This is a parent-optional class held in our art room. Our Construction Class is 60 minutes long and takes place in the Art Room.
Children in Crayons to Canvas will be mentioning famous artists such as Pollack or Van Gogh at the dinner table. Each week, children explore the aspects of different artists and then create their own version of a project based on that artist's style. When you ask your child what they did in art class, they will be able to tell you what "medium" they used and describe concepts like space, texture, perspective and abstraction, all the while being given the chance to tap into their creativity and make a colorful mess without the worry! What they bring home will be sure to fill the front of your fridge! Our Crayons to Canvas Class is 60 minutes long and takes place in the Art Room.
Do you have a "whirler" and "twirler"? Want a place to channel that desire without committing to a professional studio? Our Dance With Rompy class is the perfect place to start! Your child will learn the basics of ballet and contemporary dance as well as hip hop and jazz! During ballet and contemporary, dancers will learn stretches, warm-ups, floor routines, and a beautiful combination to show off their talents! During hip hop and jazz we will cover the basics of turns, jumps, pops, and locks that will break down the complex dance moves for your little one!

"Home run!" "Goal!" "Two points!" These are some of the words you hear in our Good Sports class everyday!

Teamwork and sportsmanship are also an important part of this energy filled class.
If your baby is moving, this is the place to keep them grooving! This parent-inclusive class designed for mobile children focuses on developing muscle groups important to those children who are progressing from crawling to walking, as well as those who are already on the move. Our equipment and activities are specially designed with your mobile baby in mind - soft equipment arranged differently each week to encourage strengthening across the board. Not to mention the bubbles, sign language, instruments, and movement songs guaranteed to set the scene for a great naptime!
We call these children our "runners"...because that's just what they do! We provide the perfect combination of independent play time and class activity, working on large muscle groups and fine motor skills through activities like balloons and paddles, ball skills, and parachute time. This vivacious age deserves a vivacious class that will set the stage for an active, healthy lifestyle.
Obstacle courses, cargo nets, rocking domes...oh my! This fun-filled class integrates just the right amount of following directions and introduction to structure disguised as fun! There will be a new theme and a different equipment set-up every week allowing the children to work on various skills, building strength and coordination, and expanding their imaginations! Don't forget the bubble dance party at the end!
Have more than one child but only time for one class? That was the thought behind this class designed to accommodate children ages 10 months through 5 years old. Don't worry - instructors will provide an extra set of hands. Want to attend a class with a friend but your children are different ages? This is yet another great use for this class! Older children will participate in an obstacle course while the younger children engage in independent play and airlog activities. All will enjoy parachute time and bubble dance party!

Science FUNdamentals at its best! Your child will learn basic scientific concepts by doing hands-on experiments every week.
