Can I drop my child off, or do I stay with them?

A parent or caregiver must accompany the child during classes.

Can we just drop in for a class?

Registering ahead of time is a good idea to ensure you get a spot and that the class is prepared with enough supplies. Drop-ins are accommodated based on capacity. Staff in the front office can help you register on-site when you arrive.

What kind of behavior is expected in Baby & Me classes?

Children are expected to behave age appropriately, which includes crying, moving, playing, and eating snacks.

What if we miss a class?

Please contact the front office at 323-938-2531 to reschedule your class.
