Drop-In Classes temp march 2020
Drop In to 14Y for a one-day class or hangout
Not ready to commit to a whole season of classes? No worries!
Drop-in classes at the 14Y are based on the same guiding principles of our other classes and support groups, without any commitment. Babies and children interact in a warm and welcoming environment, families and caregivers meet and support each other, and everyone has fun!
We believe that children are naturally capable learners and socializers – and we’re excited to set the stage for their development with you as our partner. Drop-in classes are developmentally appropriate, including enrichment classes in music and art, sensory play, gross motor play at our indoor playground, postnatal fitness, or family hangouts.
Drop-ins will be available for on-line registration after Spring Break. Until then, just check in at the front desk before you join the class.

A one-day craft extravaganza with our resident artist and Play Curator, Linda White! This is for adults and children, alone or together. Bring a piece of cardboard and get to work with us. All ages welcome to this very special event. JOIN US!
