30+ Fun Mommy-and-Me Classes in NYC for Kids

Mommy-and-me classes rule, and not just because little ones learn something new. In a city like NYC, taking a swim class or music class with your infant or toddler is a great way to meet other parents, and a social baby is a happy baby.

The hardest part of signing up for mommy-and-me classes or daddy-and-me classes in New York City might be choosing from the hundreds of options, so we've rounded up a slew of mommy-and-me classes for kids across NYC that our community of expert parents recommends most. If you need something close to home, remember that YMCAs and JCCs all host classes for little humans, from swimming to gymnastics.

You can find even more enriching opportunities in our Guide to Kids Classes and Activities for New York City Kids.

Even–maybe especially–in these pandemic times, getting out to see other people can be therapeutic for everyone, so we've updated our list to ensure safety measures are in place and classes are available, though some may toggle back and forth between virtual and IRL, as circumstances change. Please click through to each venue to verify availability and registration policies before staking out with your wee one in tow.
