Galoop - Classes


Galoop offers unique programming and community for young children and their families. Its mission is simple: to provide a nurturing environment for young children, a curriculum based on the latest research in child development, and parental education and support.

Galoop's morning program is designed for children ages 6 months to 3.5 years accompanied by a caregiver. Think of it as a “mini school” for tots this age. The emphasis is on learning through play and free exploration. Children are offered independence and agency with the opportunity to choose which of the many stations to engage in that day. Every morning, Galoop offers sensory table play, arts and crafts, song and story circle time, and outdoor play at its exploratory playground.

Galoop's afternoons offer enrichment programs for children ages 6 and under. Offerings include art, yoga, music, and French, with more to come.

Galoop also offers a summer camp. Visit the website for more information and a schedule.

Paul Elwood Guitar Coach


Wherever you’re at in life, adding guitar playing to the things you do is pretty valuable. For kids – it builds discipline and responsibility and offers opportunities for healthy, creative expression. For teens – all of the above, plus it’s another healthy social outlet. And for adults – our lives are busy and complex. Take a half an hour out of your busy week, and reconnect with your higher self.

Paired lessons for a parent and child offer an extrordianry opportunity to bond with your child and model the kind of behavior you want them to have: an openness to learning new skills, engaging their creativity in a healthy and disciplined manner.
