You’ll witness your child’s developmental evolution in language skills, literacy, listening, problem solving, social skills, self-esteem, and musicality. And it happens within a nurturing environment-full of energy, imagination, music, dancing, and playful delight. Miss Helen offers two different tracks of musical curriculum: Kindermusik classes and her own Music with Miss Helen classes.

Bonding and Baby Massage
It’s a physiological phenomenon that requires ongoing cultivation, practice, and investment. Infant Massage is an incredible tool to enhance bonding and this class is a great place to start!
When we make skin-to-skin and eye-to-eye contact with our babies during massage routines, the production of Cortisol (stress hormone) temporarily ceases while simultaneously, the production of Oxytocin, Serotonin, and Prolactin (bonding and growth hormones) increases. Which means both you and baby will feel the positive effects!
This class series is so much more than simply learning massage strokes. Your babies senses are being stimulated from the sound of your voice, the smell of your skin, the sight of your smile, and the touch of warm oil in your hands. It is the rhythmic, repetitive and caring interactions from you that help form your babies synapses increasing optimal brain function and development.
Learn to safely massage your own baby in this fun and educational, three week series.
Cost: $130 (minimum five registrants)

GroovaRoo Dance Classes
Jillian’s back with Prenatal & Babywearing Dance classes! Join this fabulous group of caregivers for a fun, four-week series. We’ll learn how to safely wear/move with baby while learning simple choreography to popular songs. Not only will you have a blast, you’ll also get a low-impact, aerobic workout in a social atmosphere while bonding more deeply with your baby (whether in your belly or in your arms). As each week’s routine builds on the last, you’re guaranteed to leave with a boosted mood, confidence, and a movement repertoire with which to soothe baby or practice at home. Even fussy babies or ones who don't like to be worn have enjoyed this class. All are welcome! No prior baby wearing or dance experience necessary.
Cost: $65 (minimum eight registrants)
Tuesday September 3rd: 11:15am-12:45pm (90-minutes)
Tuesday September 10th, 17th, and 24th: 11:15am-12:30pm (75-minutes)
We are offering a Baby Signs 101 workshop taught by Megan McCue, CCC-SLP. Baby Signing 101 is geared towards parents (who are always welcome to bring their babies/toddlers). You will learn the basics of language development, how/when/why to sign with your baby, FAQs about signing with babies, Do’s/Don’ts of signing, as well as the top 20 signs to start with. You will go home with everything you need to get you signing through the first year with baby.
We are also offering a Sign & Play 4-Week Series. The Sign & Play class is typically 45 minutes long, and includes games, music, stories, and more, all while signing! It is specifically created to engage babies aged 0-18 months old, and will not include a lot of “technical jargon” for parents.
