Mommy and Me Classes (also known as Baby and Me Classes) are designed to boost your child’s development while helping you connect and introducing you to a community of other caregivers. But we think the the best part is getting to see your children’s faces light up as they discover the joy of music, movement and play! From music together, tumbling open plays, and baby yoga, here are some of the best bonding opportunities for caregivers and their children under one in Chicago.

Foster your baby’s urge to crawl through live music and exercises. Crawlers and caregivers will experience a variety of activities such as: tummy time, sign language, instrument play, room-crosses, parachute time, open play and expert guidance from Bubbles Academy teaching artists.

Tiny Tykes: Little ones and their parents are led through a variety of beginning stretches, exercises, infant songs and dances, baby-safe rides and adventures, balance and agility skills, and introductory tumbling during this motivating program.
