Parent and child classes can be some of the most wonderful bonding activities during those early years (and months)—plus it's a great excuse to get out of the house! These interactive classes help babies, toddlers, and preschoolers forge new relationships with others, sample a host of playthings, and test out new skills.
In New Jersey, as is the case elsewhere, the class choices seem to multiply every year: music, art, yoga, sports, ballet, world languages, nature, swimming. You are sure to find something that will interest both you and your child. And, don’t expect these sessions to be filled with just moms. Dad, the nanny, grandparents, and all types of caregivers can join in the fun. Some classes offer independent play for toddlers, or even options where both siblings can attend.
