Nook Classes

With a team of early childhood development specialists and parenting coaches, we curated a set of classes and workshops that recognize and engage all members of the family. Our programming acknowledges that at this stage everyone is learning and growing, so we balance a focus on early childhood development milestones with attention to your growth in the role of parent and caregiver. And we make sure it’s fun too!

Babies brains develop by constructing an intricate communication network, which is formed by experiences children have in the first 3 years of life. Led by Nook’s resident early childhood development specialist in a relaxed playgroup setting, this 6-week series will give tiny ones the tools for building this network. Babble Buddies will also give parents and caregivers an unhurried space to ask questions about their little one’s progress and development. The classes will feature toys from our friends at Lovevery. Lovevery's science-backed, sustainably produced toys and parent guides are expertly designed to help advance a child’s cognitive development.

Have you ever seen a one year old sit for an entire class? Neither have we. In Social Climbers, “on-the-go” is our motto. Facilitated by Nook’s resident early childhood development specialist, this class will give one-year-olds the freedom to move about the classroom, practicing gross motor skills and socializing with new friends. Parents and caregivers will have the opportunity to not only engage active toddlers in a fun morning activity (hello long afternoon nap!), but also bring questions on their child’s development. This 6-week series will feature wooden climbing equipment by our friends at Wiwiurka, makers of Waldorf, Montessori, and Pikler-inspired play furniture.

Designed and led by Nook’s resident early childhood development specialist, Two Cool for School prepares the terrific 2's for routines, independence, and group participation, by recreating the typical preschool classroom and schedule.
