Best Mommy and Me Class 2015 – Richmond Magazine

We put our heart and soul into our classes. That’s why we are so thrilled about being designated “Best Mommy and Me Class” in the August 2015 issue of Richmond Magazine.

Our professionally-developed lesson plans are designed not only to be educational, but also to be tons of fun. As we like to say, we “Nurture the Genius. Unleash the Goofball!’” says Babz Barnett, Co-founder and President.Best Mommy and Me Classes Richmond Magazine August 2015

“Our facility and class curriculum adapt by age and developmental stage. We love being a fun, helpful resource and refuge for parents by offering class variety including gym, art, music, dance, sports and more for children age 3-months through age 5. The schedule is designed to be flexible with classes in mornings, evenings, and weekends, and you don’t even have to commit to a consistent class time.

We are so grateful for this honor from the readers of Richmond Magazine. We’d also like to thank local ABC affiliate WRIC for featuring us on their “Best of” special.  You can view the segment here.
