Babies, Books, and Bubbles is the perfect class for babies, ages 6-12 months, and their Grown Ups who are looking for an opportunity to connect with others in a fun and low-key way. This class is comprised of songs, movement, and parachute play and there is always time at the end for the babies to hang out and for the grown ups to have time to connect with each other. Community is always important, and it is essential during those early parenting years, so come join us for this special class.

Register for a Pop-up Grown up and Me class, and get a taste of our incredible play opportunities. This session will be run by one of our Lead Early Childhood teachers, and provide invitations for sensory experiences, pretend play, loose parts, and community building through song and movement. In the Schechter Bergen Early Childhood, children are provided with open-ended materials and provocations. Our teachers observe and facilitate the students’ experiences and then expand on them, which in turn leads to deep and collaborative learning. We learn through exploration and play, focusing on the interests of our students. Come and see the magic for yourselves!
