On Location Classes

Rhyme and Reason classes feature an hour of interactive circle time, in which we share activities within a group setting that help to boost our children's learning at home, and later, in school. We focus on the domains of early learning that are most beneficial to development: Language and Communication Skills, Physical Health and Well-being, Emotional Maturity, Social Skills, and General Cognition. Join us for an hour of fun, high-energy programming that includes music, movement, and all kinds of play, geared towards the specific ages and stages of early childhood. Our inclusive and customized classes guarantee a perfect fit for every child, parent, grandparent, and caregiver. We can't wait to see you at our interactive new flagship location in Northland Village Mall!

0 - 8 Month Olds

Using gentle songs, rhymes, stories, and activities, this six week session will strengthen our bonds with our new babies. We'll cover topics in early development, from how our babies' brains are growing, to popular areas of education like infant massage and baby sign language. Come sing, read, talk, and play with other parents, caregivers, and infants in this fun hour-long program.

8 - 15 Month Olds

In this series of classes for older babies, things get a little more active! We'll use bounces, lifts, dips, and swings to really strengthen our muscles and motor skills. We'll cover topics in language acquisition and speech development, transitions and routines (like bath and bedtimes), and work on social and emotional maturity activities with the other children and adults in our session.

15 Months - 3 Year Olds

Perfect for toddlers and young preschoolers, this session focuses on movement integration, socialization, and pre-reading and writing skills. As our children grow, so does the amount of room they need to share and explore. Acting as co-learners, we'll sing, play, talk, and move within spaces and activities designed to spark imagination and boost learning!

¡Hola! ¿Hablas español? The early years are the ideal time to introduce a second language!
